In this unedited interview for Austin’s KVUE-TV, Roy Faires sits down with actor Tim Robbins to talk about his latest film, Bull Durham (1988). The film, also starring Kevin Costner and Susan Sarandon, was partly shot in Arlington, including scenes at Six Flags Over Texas. Robbins discusses his character in the movie and gives his perspective on why his previous film, Howard the Duck (1986), failed at the box office. Faires worked as a special project director and entertainment critic/reporter at KVUE-TV, Austin’s ABC affiliate, from 1976-1989.
