Kevin Pollack to Direct ‘Misery Loves Comedy’ Documentary

Kevin Pollak will direct the documentary Misery Loves Comedy for producers Becky Newhall of Newaley Pictures and Burton Ritchie and Ben Galecki of Heretic Films, it was announced today.

Misery Loves Comedy will explore the mind of the stand-up comic and all those who choose to write or perform comedy as a profession. Pollak uses interviews, day-in-the-life sequences, archival and historic footage and photos, observations, essays and insights to explore why a person gets on stage in front of a room full of strangers when, in fact, public speaking is all other Americans' #1 fear, even above death.

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.
