The long-running Bravo TV series Inside the Actor's Studio series is coming to DVD, and the first release will be Dave Chappelle's notorious appearance in which he explained why he ditched his popular Comedy Central sketch-comedy show and fled to Africa. Inside the Actor's Studio: Dave Chappelle ($14.98) will be released Nov. 7 by Shout! Factory, an independent DVD supplier founded by Rhino Records cofounder Richard Foos, brother Garson Foos and Bob Emmer.
Out the same day comes Inside the Actor's Studio: Icons ($39.98), a three-DVD set with four episodes in which host James Lipton interviews Hollywood legends Clint Eastwood, Paul Newman, Robert Redford and Barbra Streisand. Streisand's 2003 appearance on the show drew 1.14 million viewers, a record for the series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
