Hotline Profiles Johnson

From their Friday Feature:

    Ted Johnson is Variety’s Editor at Large and writes the “Wilshire & Washington” blog about the intersection of Hollywood and politics. Before that he was deputy editor of VLife. He joined the mag in ’03 and before that he spent six years as a staff writer for TV Guide. But today he’s our Friday Feature:

    What’s your most embarrassing on-the-job moment? (Or as embarrassing as you’d like to reveal?)

    I once had to interview Drew Carey about a TV movie musical he was doing. Midway through, he asked me, “You really aren’t that interested in this, are you?” I had to tell the truth. I think I just nodded “yes.”

    It’s 2027 — where are you and what are you doing?

    I hope it is not early retirement. Hopefully I’ll be a better writer and maybe even be working out of my home, writing books and freelance articles. That is, if people are still reading.

Read the rest here.
