After 44 years doing movie reviews and movie star interviews on the TV news at CBS and NBC in Los Angeles, David Sheehan has a new calling: an online web series called "The Other Side of Stardom."
Each week, Sheehan will revisit one of his classic interviews in an effort to bring the most provocative thoughts of Hollywood's most celebrated stars to a whole new audience. Al Pacino, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robin Williams, and Tom Cruise are among the first stars to be featured.
All net proceeds from the series (FOR A YEAR) will benefit Sheehan's three favorite charities: Children of the Night, Habitat for Humanity, and St. Jude Children's Hospital.
"The Other Side of Stardom" represents a second chance for fans everywhere to experience Sheehan's very thoughtful and unusually personal conversations with a star-studded list of Hollywood greats, including:  Robert Redford, Julia Roberts, George Clooney, Michelle Feiffer, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Jane Fonda, Clint Eastwood, Jack Nicholson, Warren Beatty, Denzel Washington, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Paul Newman, Marlon Brando, Robin Williams, and more.
Actor Al Pacino is the first subject of "The Other Side of Stardom" series, prompted by critic Sheehan's rave review of Pacino's new movie "Manglehorn."
Sheehan's very personal interview with Pacino explores the acclaimed actor's attitudes about his own long life of acting, and what it has done for him (and to him) as a person.
"The Other Side of Stardom" is a co-production of Hollywood Close-Ups, Inc. and RetroVideo, Inc., directed by noted video editor Derek Bloom, editorial supervisors John Diamond & Mark Braverman, media managers AJ Barton, Toy Newkirk & Rob Neason, with Kellyann Chippendale and Jeff Jacobs, executive producers.
