DIFF 2013: Val Kilmer video interview on CITIZEN TWAIN at Wyly Theater in Dallas


I’ve had the pleasure of talking to the great Val Kilmer before, but last week he surprised a lot of folks by showing up at the Dallas International Film Festival, even walking the red carpet and attending the awards ceremony. Val is in Dallas for his passion project, the one-man play CITIZEN TWAIN, which is at the Wyly Theater from April 18 through the 21 – you can purchase tickets RIGHT HERE. ┬áSince he was around the festival, I arranged (by way of the lovely Jo Ann Holt) to have Mr. Kilmer stop by the interview suite so we could chat a bit about CITIZEN TWAIN, and what followed was a fun 23-minute interview, in which Val gives me a lot of background on the play and even jokes a bit about his KISS KISS BANG BANG co-star Robert Downey Jr. – also, I learned that Val was apparently asked to be the voice of “Jarvis” in the IRON MAN movies, a role that ultimately went to Paul Bettany. It’s safe to say that Kilmer has played some pretty iconic roles, and I for one can’t wait to see him in CITIZEN TWAIN.

And here’s a preview of what to expect from the performance:
