Video Interview: Rob Reiner, Woody Harrelson & Jennifer Jason Leigh on "LBJ"

It seems Lyndon B Johnson, the once polarizing 36th President of the United States, is finally having his cinema moment. Recent portrayals including Tom Wilkinson in "Selma" and the formidable Bryan Cranston in the Broadway production "All the Way" (made later into a HBO movie) are re-considering his legacy. Joining that list is Rob Reiner's new film, "LBJ." 

The director, himself an avid political activist, admits that he was initially hesitant to take on the biopic until he researched the remarkable legislative achievements of Johnson, as he explains in this video interview with film journalist Katherine Tulich. Tulich also spoke to Woody Harrelson, who plays Johnson and Jennifer Jason Leigh who plays Lady Bird Johnson.
