DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

In this special Friday episode, Dennis visits the Los Feliz home of Daniel and Ben Barnz, the married couple behind the new movie "Cake."  Daniel (center in the photo) directed, Ben (left) produced.  They talk about how they met, how they work together without going crazy and how they used Scrabble tiles to create the name Barnz out of their original last names.  Daniel also discusses the elaborate look books he creates when developing a new project, what it's like to shoot Jennifer Aniston climbing onto the ledge of a busy LA freeway, Jen's balls-out commitment to the project and, of course, the wondrousness that is Jen's hair.  Daniel also talks about what it's like to be in the awards season derby, surviving the political fall-out from his last film, the teaching drama "Won't Back Down", the canoe trip with his dad he thought would never end and the voice-mail from a singing superstar he'll never forget.  Oh, and he lets Dennis try out his cherished treadmill desk.
