Pariah press day in New York City was last week, and, in the rush of it all, I was able to chat with some of its starring cast (Adepero Oduye, Kim Wayans and Pernell Walker), its director (Dee Rees), and producer (Nekisa Cooper).

Pariah press day in New York City was last week, and, in the rush of it all, I was able to chat with some of its starring cast (Adepero Oduye, Kim Wayans and Pernell Walker), its director (Dee Rees), and producer (Nekisa Cooper).

Since I plan to include more original video content here on S&A, I'm investing in a solid camcorder kit which should be arriving soon; in the meantime, I've been using a rental, and videotaping almost every interview/roundtable discussion I've been involved with in recent weeks... including the time I spent with the Pariah folks.

Anyway... I'll be posting each interview/roundtable session here individually, over the next week, starting with this one... star of Pariah, the lovely Adepero Oduye, plays 10 Questions with me; although, as I said, the day was all a rush, so I didn't quite get my full 10 questions in, because there was a bit of a mixup in where/when I was supposed to be, and with whom, which cut into my time. So I got to ask just 9 questions. Seated on her right was director Dee Rees, by the way, although she's not in the shot.

So, here ya go... 10... uh... I mean 9 questions with Adepero Oduye (thanks to Adepero, Dee and Nekisa for playing along, given that they probably weren't expecting me to break out with the 10 questions bit :)):
