THR's 'Hollywood Masters' Series Sets Jane Fonda, Jake Gyllenhaal for Fourth Season
Moderated by THR's executive features editor, Stephen Galloway, the new set of interviews kicks off Sept. 30.
NBC Universal vice chairman Ron Meyer and Oscar winners Jane Fonda and Michael Caine will be among the guests in the fourth season of The Hollywood Masters interview series, it was announced Monday.
Moderated by The Hollywood Reporter's executive features editor, Stephen Galloway, each interview in the series takes an in-depth look at the body of work of a major filmmaker or artist. The 90-minute interviews are held before a student audience at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, and run exclusively on THR's website.
Other guests this season, which kicks off Sept. 30, include Oscar-nominated actors Amy Adams (American Hustle, The Fighter) and Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain, Southpaw); writer-producer Damon Lindelof (Lost, Star Trek); and producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean, CSI).
Guests in previous seasons of the series have included Clint Eastwood, Sean Penn, Michael Mann and Alfonso Cuaron. The interviews are open to students and faculty at the university.
"It's every journalist’s dream to interview such gigantic creative talent as Michael Caine and Jane Fonda," said Galloway. "And to have the other extraordinary guests we’ve invited for this season — all welcomed by the most enthusiastic student audience I've ever seen — makes this one of the best experiences of my professional life."
"The Hollywood Masters continues to be an invaluable program for our students as they navigate the world of filmmaking," said Stephen Ujlaki, dean of the LMU School of Film and Television. "We are fortunate to be able to provide them with the opportunity to hear from artists who have spent their careers telling powerful stories and inspiring audiences worldwide, and we are all extremely excited for this new season."
