LONDON — Legendary TV interviewer David Frost has lined up the second man on the moon Buzz Aldrin, actor Gael Garcia Bernal and chess legend Garry Kasparov to be on the second season of his hourlong interview shows on Al Jazeera English.
Frost, whose famous interview with the U.S. president Richard Nixon was used as the basis for Ron Howard‘s Frost/Nixon starring Michael Sheen and Frank Langella, is going back to his roots with his in-depth interviews with leading personalities.
The Frost Interview season will see each show devoted to a single personality in the arts, science, politics or business, with racing driver Lewis Hamilton, conductor Daniel Barenboim, Internet browser inventor Marc Andreessen, author Isabel Allende and Bangladesh prime minister Sheikh Hasina also slotted to appear.
The previous season of Frost Interview included Paul McCartney saying for the first time that he did not blame Yoko Ono for the breakup of The Beatles, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu talking about his “anger with God” during apartheid in South Africa.
Frost has been with Al Jazeera English since its launch in 2006.
