Opening in theaters on April 20th is a new film from veteran director Lawrence Kasdan (Silverado, Grand Canyon) called Darling Companion. Kasdan co-wrote the film with his wife Meg, and it is was loosely based on an event from their own lives. The film stars an all-star cast of actors that features three Academy Award-winners and two former nominees including Kevin Kline (A Fish Called Wanda), Diane Keaton (Annie Hall), Dianne Wiest (Bullets Over Broadway), Richard Jenkins (The Visitor), and Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff). Rounding out the cast are actor/director Mark Duplass (Jeff, Who Lives at Home), Ayelet Zurer (Angels & Demons) and Elisabeth Moss (TV's Mad Men).

IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had the pleasure of sitting down and speaking with Oscar-winner Kevin Kline about his work on Darling Companion. The seasoned actor discussed the new film, his initial reaction to the premise of the film and the true story it is based on, working with his longtime collaborator and friend Lawrence Kasdan, his character's relationship to his wife played by Diane Keaton, working with the film's canine star, as well as looking back at two of his best but little known films: Silverado, and The January Man
