Following his interview with Piers Morgan (airing Friday, 9pm ET/PT), Jason Kurtz caught up with Montel Williams for a brief chat in the Green Room.
After a 17 season run with the Emmy Award-winning “The Montel Williams Show,” the 55-year-old has plenty of insight into television interview programs, and thinks the host of “Piers Morgan Tonight” is certainly holding his own:
“Piers is great. The thing’s about him, even though I was given kind of a parameter where the interview was going to be, you know, he asked questions that catch you over there, or rather over there, or I didn’t think it would go there, so it was kind of cool,” remarked Williams. “It makes it more spontaneous and gives you an opportunity to like really delve into thought-provoking questions rather than just peripheral questions.”
During the chat, the actor and public-speaker touches upon his passion for healthy living, and reveals whether or not his race impacts how he votes.
Watch the above clip, and tune in Friday for a primetime exclusive at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
