Carl Reiner - esteemed actor, writer, director, producer, and all-around funnyman - was on hand at the Aero Theater Saturday night to sign copies of his new book I Just Remembered and reminisce about his legendary career, including the two movies screening that evening, The Comic and Enter Laughing.
Reiner, dubbed a "jack of all trades," said that his talents as a writer, director, and performer are connected, though he admitted, "I'm an actor, and I act like all of those things!" In addition to this declaration, it was also noted that he focuses his gifts on the same subject: show business. When asked why that is, Reiner's answer was simple: it's something Reiner knows a lot about, and it doesn't require any research for him. For instance, he once considered making a character a doctor, but then he thought about everything he would have to learn about medicine to make the character realistic and instead turned the character into a producer. In fact, Reiner admitted that he writes mostly about himself and simply changes the names and the women!
