    Default King on Nightline tonight

    King will be on ABC's Nightline tonight at 11:35 PM to discuss The Mist.

    Master storyteller Stephen King gives a rare, in-depth interview to Jake Tapper of ABC's NIGHTLINE about his career, his views on politics today, and about the highly anticipated film adaptation of his novella, THE MIST.

    I saw this last night and it was great. The Mist looks great, I'm really jazzed about the seeing it, rated R and everything.

    For me though, it was just cool to see King. He looks all healed up and healthy, I seem to have this forever image of him in my mind, after that accident. He was so skinny and pale --I was worried we would lose him. So he looks good, that is cool.

    The interviewer asked him if it was a "dark place" to be Stephen King, I thought it was idiotic. The man has a vivid imagination but that doesn't mean he also can't vividly experience love or joy along with it...just dumb.

    At the end, they asked about what should be his epitaph, Stephen King told him "good husband and father", I like that a lot. I think I have always understood on a very deep level that its not just about the books but about the man himself, he's a really cool dude.

    Good stuff.

    I like how he brought up the Rage-Running Man comparison, which was unprompted by Tapper.

    People scoff at the comparison-since it seems farcical that the Hamburg cell that perpetrated 9/11 would be sitting around reading copies of the Bachman books along with flight instruction manuals and jihadi training booklets-but it's a fair analogy.

    If you're going to worry about how some disturbed individual is going to interpret an horrific scenario outlined in a work of fiction, then no controversial literature would ever be written. Maybe we should take Therese Raquin off the shelves because it might give people the inclination to drown their betrothed. And no, I'm not comparing Stephen King favorably to Emile Zola, just trying to illustrate a point.

    That was a great interview. I would ask a mod to slip in to the first post that it does contain spoilers for the movie version of The Mist though.

    NB: There aren't really any spoilers, although they do skirt around revealing major plot points. I guess it depends upon what you consider a "spoiler." King disbelieves in the concept altogether, so you have to take that into consideration as well, but there's no "this happens to character x," if that's what you're concerned about.

    An even more apt comparison is with Tom Clancy's Debt of Honor (1999). In that one, a disgraced Japanese pilot crashes his (empty, except for him and the body of his co-pilot) jet liner into the Capitol building during a joint session of Congress.

    You're welcome.

    I've never read the Tom Clancy novel you mentioned, but it's an interesting analogy.

    The only Clancy work I'm familiar with is Sum of all Fears, where the Hollywood writers changed the script entirely-and created an absurd plot-line-due to pressure from CAIR and Islamist groups over here.

    I did have a friend in high school, originally from Israel, who was a big Clancy fan.

    Yes they do. They discuss the tone of the ending of The Mist being different from the novella.

    Nope, I was responding to Jhanic.

    Bear with me, because I'm just too lazy to type out two separate replies.

    I see your point Jimmy; for people who are worried about spoilers don't look at that transcript.

    See?
