Director of Iron Man Interviews Director of Skateboarding

Two men we wouldn’t mind having lunch with.

Here at GP we love a good mashup. Especially when two seemingly opposite ideas come together for something unexpectedly great.

Tonight I’ve got my DVR set to record Iconoclasts on the Sundance Channel. If you don’t know about Iconoclasts, it’s an outstanding show that forgoes the typical interview/interviewee process and pairs two influencers/celebrities/world-changers of seemingly opposite genres and has them interview each other in a casual real-world environment. It’s fascinating.

In it’s forth season and more importantly tonight, Iconoclasts has Jon Favreau, director of the Iron Man movie franchise (but more importantly, creator and actor in Swingers) interviewing Tony Hawk, and vice versa. Other interview pairings include: Wycleaf Jean and Venus Williams, Mike Myers and Deepak Chopra, Quentin Tarantino and Fiona Apple, Cameron Diaz and Cameron Sinclair, Eddie Vedder and Laird Hamilton… and the list goes on.

More than just questions, you’ll see Tony Hawk showing Jon Favreau why he’s scared to do his new jump or what the biggest challenge is between creating a movie like Swingers and Iron Man 2. So watch and learn.

Who knows? Season 10 could feature you.

Editor’s Note: In a Gear Patrol World, our mashup vote goes to resident golf guru Patrick Tuttle talking with Lil Wayne a.k.a Wheezy. Imagine the possibilities.
