Griffin Dunne on acting, Joan Didion and his plans for an After Hours TV show


When Griffin Dunne first appeared in London in 1981, it was as the living-dead victim of a werewolf. He roamed the streets of the UK capital, slowly decomposing and accompanying his friend through his own transformation into the murderous beast. In the years since An American Werewolf in London, Dunne has never stopped wandering, perpetually moving between acting, producing and directing. When we meet on his return to the city he once haunted, it’s to discuss Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold, a new documentary about the famed author of ‘The White Album’ and ‘Play It as It Lays’.
