Damon Lindelof, a key figure behind some of recent history’s biggest Sci-Fi television and film successes; the co-creator and showrunner of Lost (TV series), producer for J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek (2009 film), co-writer/producer for Star Trek 2 (film slated for 2012), writer of Jon Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens (2011 film) and Ridley Scott’s Promtetheus (film slated for 2012), just to name a few of Damon Lindelof’s credentials… He has had quite the journey.
I always find it inspirational to hear about various professional creative’s (animator’s, artist’s, film maker’s, etc., etc.) personal journeys. Along those lines, I recently discovered Kevin Pollak’s Chat Show which I’m now hooked on, and regularly inspired by.

In this interview, Lindelof talks about his twitter “feud” with Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin, his inspirations, learning at NYU, his early life trying to make it in Hollywood, Stephen King and King film/TV adaptations, Star Wars vs. Star Trek, the creation of Lost and working with J.J. Abrams, collaborating with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman on Cowboys & Aliens, working with Ridley Scott on Promtetheus and how it connects to the Alien films, how the writer’s strike allowed him to produce Star Trek while also working on Lost, brief thoughts on the newly announced 1952 project he’s working on for Disney, his Larry King impression, and much more.
