Penn connected with us last week to give us his perspective on being a part of the unique short film series-turned-feature film, and his really epic thoughts on what he'd want his own place in history to be.

Like Willie Garson, Penn became part of the PERIODS. ensemble through a shared connection with co-creators Victor Qu...

'White Collar's' Willie Garson Gets Historical In 'PERIODS.'

One of them is PERIODS., a hilarious semi-improvised film that turns history and literary classics into something not quite so serious. We had the chance last week to ask Willie a few questions about his newest and decidedly different gig.
