Oscar winner Alan Arkin is set to appear at the TCM Classic Film Festival's "Live from the TCM Classic Film Festival during its annual festival, taking place in Hollywood from April 10 -13th.

He will sit down with TCM host Robert Osborne for an extended interview about his life and extraordinary career, which won him an Academy Award for his performance in "Little Miss Sunshine." The interview will be taped Sunday, April 13, in front of a live audience of festival passholders at the The Ricardo Montalbán Theatre. The interview will then air on TCM in spring 2015 as the original special Alan Arkin: Live from the TCM Classic Film Festival. In addition to his interview, Arkin will be on-hand to introduce a screening of The Heart is a Lonely Hunter (1968), which earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Actor.

Alan Arkin"Whatever kind of role he plays – whether as a confused Russian in a cold-war comedy or stalking Audrey Hepburn in a thriller, Alan Arkin is always a joy to watch," said Osborne. "His career has spanned more than four decades, and he still continues to be one of the most interesting and creative actors working today. I very much look forward to sitting down with him and hearing about his life and his work on such classics as The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, Wait Until Dark, Catch-22 and The Russians are Coming, The Russians are Coming, as well as more recent successes like his Academy Award-winning performance in Little Miss Sunshine and his Oscar nominated performance in Argo. We'll also be talking about his award-winning theater career as both an actor and director and his equally successful career as an author. He is a remarkable, multi-faceted man, one who has always let his work speak for him. I'm particularly eager for this chance for all of us to better get to know Alan Arkin, the person and the artist."

Each year, the TCM Classic Film Festival features an extended interview taped in front of a live audience for telecast on TCM under the Live from the TCM Classic Film Festival banner.
