Now engaged in a marathon publicity junket for his new film "Up in the Air," director Jason Reitman ("Juno," "Thank You for Smoking") has been flying around the country doing interviews.

Roger Ebert has posted his questions here. After the jump: The 11-20 most-asked questions, and my own Venn diagram!
