Radar’s Graham Gangi Answers Five Questions
July 24, 2013 by Screenmag
In today’s update to our regular running feature, Radar Studios Executive Producer Graham Gangi answers five questions.
SCREEN: Can you cook? If so, what is your go-to dish? GANGI: My father was the cook when I was a kid. One of my most favorite things he taught me to cook was a southwest take on Chili. It is made with chunks of beef (instead of ground) and has the perfect amount of spices, served over macaroni, garnished with cheese, sour cream, kalamata olives, and chives. I love making a large batch and having friends over to enjoy.
SCREEN: What's your guilty pleasure TV? GANGI: I am a big fan of the Joss Whedon Buffy the Vampire / Angel Universe series. I know, a very guilty pleasure. Joss Whedon knows how to hook you in.
SCREEN: Describe your perfect Sunday. GANGI: An early rise sometime between 6 - 6:30 AM, with breakfast on our sun porch. I start the day with some Tennis with my wife, and then running around a playground with our son, followed by some sort of swimming activity and a late afternoon nap. At the end of the day it’s appetizers, a crisp drink at dusk and an extended family dinner with my siblings and our kids. I put the day to rest with story time with my 3-year-old son.
SCREEN: What's the last movie you saw in a theater? GANGI: It is the season of Summer Blockbusters… "Man of Steel".... and I cried. I have become such a sap when it comes to father and son tales. Very embarrassing.
SCREEN: Tell us about your last trip to Vegas. GANGI: I have never been to Vegas. When I finally make it, I plan on experiencing my own private "Fear & Loathing".
SCREEN: If you could redesign the American Flag, what would you do? GANGI: I love the American Flag. It is incredibly iconic. In my home, covering a wall, we have a huge American flag that was flown above the Congress Capitol Dome. I honestly love the flag the way it is. I do appreciate the black and white interpretations I have seen.
SCREEN: What's your favorite American city? Foreign city? GANGI: American city - You can't beat Chicago. It has everything you could desire; wonderful neighborhoods, amazing art and architecture, great food, a thriving music scene, and an inland freshwater sea.
Foreign City - My family loves to travel, so every time we go somewhere new, I end up loving where we just visited. This spring we were lucky enough to visit Lisbon, so now Lisbon is my favorite foreign city, but I’m sure that will change after our next trip.
