Terry Gross plays Terry Gross in Jodie Foster/Mel Gibson flick
Fresh Air pubradio host Terry Gross has a cameo in "The Beaver," a film opening in May directed by Jodie Foster and co-starring Foster and Mel Gibson, reports Dave Davies, senior reporter at WHYY. Gross told Davies that she took the role as a learning experience. "I thought, I've talked to so many actors and directors, it would be so interesting not only to observe, but to be part of the process," she said. Gross had no lines to memorize, but improvised her dialogue in a scene in which Gibson's character appears on Fresh Air.
