As part of a promotional tour for HBO’s “John Adams”, Oscar nominated actor Paul Giamatti was at VideoLink’s Philadelphia studio on Tuesday March 10th to tape an appearance on PBS’s New Hour with Jim Lehrer. Also appearing on the show was David McCullough: Pulitzer Prize winning author of “John Adams.” Conducting the shots were VideoLink Production Associates Don Henley and Adam Zelinski. “Mr. Giamatti was extremely cordial and a pleasure to have in our studio”, said Henley.
The Philadelphia studio on North 17th Street is no stranger to notable guests. They have recently hosted big names such as Jon Bon Jovi and Donovan McNabb of the Philadelphia Eagles and recently traveled to Penn State to tape Will Ferrell and Will Arnett for a press junket for “Semi-Pro” and the FunnyorDie.com Comedy Tour. Pennsylvania Governor Ed Randall and Senator Arlen Spector also do a majority of their broadcast appearances from VideoLink. VideoLink routinely hosts politicians, talking heads, and other notable personalities at its multiple studios in Philadelphia, Boston and Baltimore.
