Patton Oswalt on His Dream of Becoming a Film Director: “Eventually I Will”

“Eventually I will. But when I make the leap to become a director, I have got to convince a platoon of people to make the leap with me, so that’s really nerve-racking. And I’m in the process of working up to that. And hopefully, someday, someone can play back this interview, if I’ve made a movie, and I can go, ‘Oh, OK. I was at least approaching it respectfully.’ It’s gonna have to be me finally just closing my eyes, and hitting the gas pedal and pulling out into traffic.”

Patton Oswalt talks his movie addiction, new memoir Silver Screen Fiend, and his goal to become a director in a new interview with NPR.
