An Evening with Steven Wiig
In Conversation with NPR's Stan Wright
Steven Wiig is an actor best known for his roles in Sean Penn's Into The Wild, Gus Van Sant's Milk and Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master. Born and raised in Negaunee, Wiig attended Northern Michigan University before relocating to Minnesota to pursue music. For over a dozen years, he traveled the world with the heavy metal band Metallica, making his first appearance on the big screen in the warts-and-all documentary Some Kind Of Monster. As a member of the Screen Actors Guild now living in the San Francisco Bay Area, Wiig has worked with acclaimed directors such as Tim Burton and Woody Allen as well as on recent blockbuster movies like Godzilla and Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes. Upcoming films include James Franco's childhood-inspired Yosemite, the 1970's Bay Area historical drama America Is Still the Place and Christopher Coppola's vampire opera Sacred Blood. Steven also stars in the award-winning black and white film Dead Metaphors in which he plays the lead role of Hank Nichols, a reclusive, self-destructive novelist. Featuring songs from Tom Waits, Wiig will provide an exclusive U.P. preview of the film followed by discussion.
