Let me catch you up to speed here: Internationally famous actor, screenwriter and director Billy Bob Thornton has a mod/Americana-style band called The Boxmasters. Oops. I mentioned that he's involved in film. Apparently you're not supposed to do that. (We mentioned The Boxmasters once before.) So Thornton and his crew recently appeared on the CBC Radio One program "QTV" with Jian Ghomeshi, where ol' Slingblade proceeded to go totally Joaquin and give everyone the jeebies.
As you'll see, Thornton is simply trying to talk about his "Cosmic Cowboy music" when Ghomeshi suddenly bombards him with casual references to his massive film career and totally harmless questions about his influences. What was Thornton supposed to do? He had to compare Canada to "mashed potatoes with no gravy."
