The numbers are in and the big question is finally answered... Well, kind of!
Was The Interview a success?
So, how much, exactly, did it make for Sony?
This is a first!
Tickets to the taping of Inside the Actors Studio with James Franco was in such high demand, show producers had to reject 250 "industry professionals" who were trying to get free tickets to the show. Tickets to the show had sold out almost immediately.
Sources at the show said this was a first in the history of Inside the Actors Studio.
And luckily for fans, James did NOT disappoint. After taping, he "stayed another hour-and-a-half after the taping and talked to every single student and fan who wanted to talk."
According to the source, "No one has done that since Paul Newman…the very first guest that ever appeared on the show."
Wow, whatta guy!!!
And what's even more awesome is that so many girls were screaming for the handsome actor, host James Lipton had to stop the interview to tell the crowd, "17 years filming this show and I've never heard a sound like that before."
We'd be screaming too if we were there!
