Six questions for Banks Lee

There you have it. Honest-to-Clark proof that somebody's reading my blog. Banks Lee, a stage actor from Texarkana, responded to my need for interviewees. Below are his answers to the all-important six questions.

Q: What was your most recent job in the movie industry?

A: My most recent job (as of now my only job) was an extra in the movie "Year One." I played a Sodom Citizen (insert Sodom joke here).

Q: What's the coolest part about the job?

A: Just being there on set, seeing how things are done was the coolest part of it all. Actually, the 'coolest part' was the weather, as it was around 40 degrees the morning I was on set for "Year One." It felt like if I were to stub my toes they would chip off.

Q: What is your main career goal?

A: My main career goal is to be an actor. I am about to become a Cast Member at Walt Disney World in Florida, where I hope to get into their entertainment department.

Q: What single experience has proved most valuable?

A: One single experience that proved valuable would be working at UNT on their local TV shows. Up to that point I had only done theater, and that showed me just how different it is between theater and television/film.

Q: In what movie or show can we see your work?

A: Well you may be able to see me in the background of "Year One," but my college television shows are available to see on Google Video (search for "The Post Cognitive" or "Elvis and Slick Monty"). One scene I liked during "Year One" was Oliver Platt in front of a giant bull head where he sacrifices virgins. He is doing a hilarious dance, wailing his arms around and rubbing where his nipples are. It was hard not to laugh.

Q: What's your favorite movie of all time and why? (You must choose one.)

A: My favorite movie of all time? Geez, there are so many. Thanks for making me narrow it down, Alex. I'm gonna have to say the it is "Casablanca." Such wonderful performances and memorable lines. That movie never gets old for me.
