I sent William an email with a few questions about Fletch. He wrote back to me on August 21st and seems like a pretty nice guy. Here is my interview:
What was it like to work with Chevy
William Sanderson: Civil.
Laker Jim: What was it like behind the scenes? Any
great Stories that stand out?
William Sanderson: Behind the scenes - I let the hairdresser cut my hair.
(William had longer hair before the movie Fletch)
Laker Jim: Do
you ever watch Fletch? If so, do you realize what an impact it
has on people?
William Sanderson: No.
Laker Jim: What
do you think of the new Fletch film being made by Kevin Smith
William Sanderson: I heard about the plan in a press release
How would you feel if he casts
Jason Lee or a younger actor to play Fletch rather than Chevy?
William Sanderson: Indifferent if I'm not in it. How old is he?
(Jason Lee is 30 and Ben Affleck is 28)
Laker Jim:When people come up and talk to you, is
Fletch one of the movies that they remember you from?
William Sanderson: Depends on whether they saw it - more mention Newhart.
Since Kevin Smith
has the rights to all 11 Fletch books, would you be interested in
playing your role in a future Fletch movie?
William Sanderson: I've been a fan of the Fletch books well over 20 years.
Laker Jim: What is your Favorite Fletch quote? What
one do/did you find yourself saying the most?
William Sanderson: I've moved on.
William Sanderson: Good Luck to the new Fletch, whomever it is. Best Regards, William.
I'd just like to thank William "Jim Swarthout" Sanderson too for answering my questions in the first ever Laker Jim Fletch Won Interview. More interviews coming soon. You can check out his official website at http://www.williamsanderson.net or email him at email@example.com
