Robert Duvall is a living legend. He has starred in some of the most critically acclaimed films in history such as The Godfather Part II and has directed amazing works including an underground classic, The Apostle.  He invited former politician and current FoxNews host Mike Huckabee to his home for an exclusive sit down to promote his new film Get Low.

During the interview Duvall is asked about his attraction to and ability to play fallen characters in search of redemption, the ostracization of The South by Hollywood, his early lean years rooming with Dustin Hoffman and his affinity for Sarah Palin among other things. Here is Duvall in a wonderfully insightful and thoughtful interview:

“Get Low is my wife’s favorite film since The Apostle.”– Robert Duvall

Here is the trailer for Get Low and a brief clip from The Apostle.  Both of these, especially the latter, should be on your short list of must watch films:

Get Low (2010):

For years, townsfolk have been terrified of the backwoods recluse known as Felix Bush. People say he’s done all manner of unspeakable things — that he’s killed in cold blood; that he’s in league with the Devil; that he has strange powers — and they avoid him like the plague. Then, one day, Felix rides to town with a shotgun and a wad of cash, saying he wants to buy a funeral.

The Apostle (1997):

Get Low, which co-stars Sissy Spacek and Bill Murray, is set for a limited U.S. release on July 30th.  Can I get an Amen!?!
