Video with Tom Hooper of 'The King's Speech'

Check out the above video of our fantastic Q&A last night with Tom Hooper, the director of "The King's Speech." Hooper had reason to be in a good mood yesterday--he was nominated for an Oscar yesterday for Best Director, and the film received 12 nominations overall. Among other things, he spoke in depth about how Colin Firth created the stutter to play King George VI, and how they had to work around Helena Bonham Carter's "Harry Potter" schedule to get her in the film. The sold-out crowd at the SAG Foundation screening was utterly charmed by the director, even giving him a standing ovation. When I pointed out I'd never seen one for a director, he quipped,  "And I've never seen such an employable group of actors in my life."
