If you’d like a Crispin Glover experience of your own, Glover will be at the Castro Theater tonight through Sunday. He will be presenting his “Big Slideshow” (which we’ve heard great things about), signing books, and screening his newest film, “It is Fine! EVERYTHING IS FINE” Gothamist did a fantastic job interviewing Glover about the film; you can read that interview out here. You can’t rent or buy the films, so if you want to see them—hit the theater this weekend.
The show starts at 8 pm. Tickets are $20 and are available at www.ticketweb.com or at the Castro Theatre box office day of show.
How did you get the name Hellion?
My father’s middle name is Herbert. As a struggling actor in New York he’d say “Bruce H. Glover, Bruce Hellion Glover” to make himself feel better. When he met my mother he said his name was Bruce Hellion Glover. And then when they got married she saw that wasn’t his name on the marriage license and she thought “who have I married?” And then they gave it to me as my real name when I was born.
