joseph bottoms center stage
Joseph Bottoms, right, as he appears in Yankee Tavern at Center Stage Theater.


Star of stage and screen, from The Dove and The Black Hole to Yankee Tavern

Today on the show we have actor Joseph Bottoms, best known for starring in television mini-series back in the day like Holocaust, soaps like Days of Our Lives and Santa Barbara, and Disney’s sci-fi film The Black Hole. And he’s still acting, by the way, starring as conspiracy theorist Ray in Steven Dietz’ play Yankee Tavern currently playing here at Center Stage Theater, and the reason I was able to get him to sit down with me for this interview. I went and saw the play last Friday and it a fabulous comedy-thriller based around 9-11 conspiracy theories. And do we get into some of that? Yes we do.

If you are from Santa Barbara, you’ll also know that Joseph is one of the four Bottoms brothers, all of whom got into acting. Timothy was in The Last Picture Show and Sam--who passed away in 2008—-was in Apocalypse Now. His father Bud Bottoms is a sculptor and is best known for the dolphin sculpture at Stearns Wharf, one of the symbols of the city. So man, this is a prominent Santa Barbara family.

This was a fun interview, and I'm sorry if I didn’t get to talking about a certain show or movie, but there’s some good stories in here.
