Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

James Lipton drew out compelling, deeply personal, and inspirational stories from the biggest names in show business to benefit aspiring actors and filmmakers. Lipton began his entertainment career as a student of the performing arts, and his deep passion and innate talent eventually brought him to the forefront of any project he undertook, from the bright lights of Broadway to the hectic schedule of daytime television. Lipton further propelled his career as a television producer responsible for Bob Hope's star-studded birthday specials, "Jimmy Carter's Inaugural Gala" (CBS, 1977), and the critically acclaimed talk show "Inside the Actors Studio" (Bravo, 1994- ). Lipton created the series based around a graduate-level acting program he founded in New York City. "Inside the Actors Studio" featured Lipton's interviews with the most prominent figures in entertainment and included a Q&A portion with the student audience. The hit series even garnered a hilarious "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975- ) spoof with Will Ferrell's deadpan impersonation of the stoic and monotone host. Yet with all the hoopla surrounding the long-running show, "Inside the Actors Studio" was Lipton's master class in entertainment...
