Himself Won Best Actor for 1983’s “Tender Mercies”
NEW YORK, NY – March 9, 2010 – Bill Boggs, legendary television personality, food and wine expert and motivational speaker announced today that several important new ideos have been posted at:
including a vintage interview with Robert Duvall, the legendary Hollywood star who plays 2010 Best Actor Academy Award ™ winner Jeff Bridges’ mentor in the multiple Oscar™-winning film “Crazy Heart.” Boggs noted that Duvall, who was Executive Producer of the film, won a best actor nod in for his portrayal of a down-and-out country singer in the 1983 film “Tender Mercies.”
“I really enjoyed sharing good food with Bob, and interviewing him for my show ‘Corner Table,’” Boggs comments. “He was funny, candid and most importantly, shared some interesting anecdotes about his experiences making some of the greatest films ever produced in the US,including ‘The Godfather.’ This segment clearly shows why Bob is not just a highly regarded actor, but a genuinely warm and delightful man.”
