Behind the Scenes of Frost/Nixon

Wild about movies has an extensive article about the behind the scenes of Frost/Nixon. You can read the full article here.

Matthew Macfadyen had this to say in the article:

“John Birt was a producer at the time for LWT,”says Macfadyen, who met the real Birt for lunch prior to filming, as well as at the end of the shoot when Birt visited the Los Angeles set. “He’d worked with David Frost before, very happily and successfully, and Frost sort of poached him from this company for whom he’d just gone to work. Birt was actually my age, 32, at the time of the interviews, but he was already an incredibly successful producer. I think Birt had doubts about Frost’s ability to pull off these interviews.”
