Since his breaking through as an actor and screenwriter with 1996’s “Swingers,” Jon Favreau has remained quite visible in front of the camera, from mainstream projects such as the summer 1998 blockbuster Deep Impact and a stint on TV’s “Friends” to more specialized fare such as Peter Berg’s underappreciated 1998 dark comic gem “Very Bad Things” and last summer’s indie romantic comedy Love & Sex. Favreau’s recently released feature directing debut Made may be his first screenwriting credit since the Doug (Go) Liman-directed cult comedy classic, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that he has not been busy with his pen and honing his other off-camera skills in the past five years. In a recent talk, Favreau shed some light on some of these lesser-known creative endeavors and how they led up to and helped the making of Made, along the way sounding off on the Internet, independent filmmaking, and the Hollywood system.
