Actor, writer and director Lee Wilkof took time to speak on Zoom with the Theatre Arts Productions cast of School of Rock on his experience as Mr. Green in the original movie released in 2003. He also discussed his experience in movies, television and theater and answered questions from cast members.
Wilkof has spent decades as a prolific character actor. He has appeared in more than 125 films and television roles since 1973, 10 Broadway productions, and resident and regional theaters throughout the United States.
He answered many questions about School of Rock and many of his Broadway roles, including originating the role of Seymour in Little Shop of Horrors.
