2013-03-08-Last_Fall_410.jpgQuick, when I throw out the name Keith David, what's your first thought? Him casting a suspicious glance towards Kurt Russell in The Thing? The fistfight with Rowdy Roddy Piper in They Live? Maybe it's the noble and ferocious Goliath from Gargoyles or the nefarious Dr. Facilier from The Princess and the Frog? Face it, the guy's been around, including a notable performance in the various storylines of Cloud Atlas and, on the non-genre side, a recent turn as a dying and remorseful father in the drama The Last Fall. That kind of career requires a plus-sized CFQ Interview, and we're delighted that Keith consented to spend the time with us to talk about a career that has spanned the length and breadth of stage and screens both big and little.
