Miss Piggy and Charles Grodin

Actor Charles Grodin died yesterday. He was 86. Known for his work in films like “Midnight Run,” “The Heartbreak Kid” “Beethoven,” and “The Great Muppet Caper” – Grodin also performed on television, on Broadway, and hosted his own talk show on CNBC. We spoke with him in 2012 and we air that interview today, in memoriam. The conversation begins with Grodin explaining why it’s so difficult to thrive – or even survive – in show business.
