EXCLUSIVE: Kevin Pollak Talks ‘Columbus Circle’

Actor/writer/producer Kevin Pollak discusses his thriller Columbus Circle, which debuts on Blu-ray and DVD March 6.

Every movie has a unique story about how it was made, but the story of Columbus Circle's inception is rather amazing. Actor Kevin Pollak was there every step of the way as a co-star, playing the meek concierge Klandermann, and he also co-wrote the script with director George Gallo and produced. Columbus Circle revolves around Abigail (Selma Blair), an agoraphobic heiress who never leaves her posh penthouse apartment, and whose bizarre way of life is turned upside down when a new couple (Amy Smart and Jason Lee) moves in next door. I recently had the chance to speak over the phone with Kevin Pollak about this fantastic thriller, which will hit the shelves on Blu-ray or DVD March 6, and you can take a look at what he had to say below.

Abigail Clayton (Selma Blair) lives alone. Very alone. In fact, the heiress has not left her Manhattan apartment for almost two decades. When the death of her elderly neighbor prompts NYPD Homicide Detective Frank Giardello (Giovanni Ribisi) to launch an investigation, the agoraphobic Abigail is distressed to find him outside her door, questioning her. Having tried to acquire the now vacant apartment to ensure her privacy, Abigail is further upset when new tenants Lillian (Amy Smart) and Charlie (Jason Lee) move in. Abigail anxiously monitors her new neighbors from the safety of her front door's peephole, but her well-ordered world begins to unravel when she finally encounters Lillian and Charlie face-to-face and her sheltered existence becomes threatened in unexpected and terrifying ways.
