Toasts Freak Show
by Anthony D'Alessandro, Variety (January 11,
At HBO's Thursday night premiere for "Carnivale's"
second season, the cast shared stories about
working on the freak show.
"I have an old dog
and she gets very nervous. She'll start growling
at things that aren't there," said skein
creator Daniel Knauf. "Maybe she sees things
that we don't."
As the show's snake charmer,
Adrienne Barbeau has had to contend with more
than her fair share of reptiles: Animal handlers
are constantly driving away rattlesnake interlopers.
But, seriously, who's
more challenging to work with --- the snakes
or Swamp Thing?
"Making 'Swamp Thing'
was difficult," Barbeau laughed, "but
Dick Durock, who played Swamp Thing, was a sweetheart."
Those attending the sideshow
on the Par lot included Ed Harris, exec producer
Howard Klein and thesps Clancy Brown, Carla
Gallo and Clea Duvall.
