Mondays With Marlo - Director Ron Howard

The holiday season is upon us, and it's one of our favorite times of year for going to the movies. So we were thrilled to have director and actor Ron Howard on the show, who's just released his newest film, In The Heart Of The Sea. Ron has had an amazing career in television and film, from acting in The Andy Griffith Show to directing Oscar winning blockbusters like A Beautiful Mind and Apollo 13. His latest film, In the Heart of the Sea, is a gripping tale of men battling a great white whale - the amazing true story that inspired the novel Moby Dick. Ron chats about what made him want to direct this movie, how he prepared his actors, and the real secret for of being married 40 years. Watch the talk, then be sure to catch In The Heart Of The Sea, which is in theaters everywhere now!
