Promoting The Art of the Steal (review here) Kurt Russell has given a video interview with Yahoo.com and has spoken about his 1980s movies from The Thing to Tango & Cash. It’s a good interview that you should check out and full of anecdotes.

Still it’s difficult to stay angry at Russell, at least, not in the same way as Bruce Willis who really has turned out to be a total dickhead. Even so much as requiring a punch in the mouth from John Cusack.
