John van der Ruit and Brad Logan Interview

These are two of the ‘four horsemen’ who led Spud to the big screen. John van der Ruit, the author of Spud, and Brad Logan, one of the producers. John van der Ruit was surprisingly chatty, and not that author image many people have of a hobbled old man hiding in a dark cave writing books. No, this isn’t our first meeting, but it was just something that went through my mind during the interview.

We chatted about the confines of a movie compared to a book, the casting process and I found out a little more about Spud’s international release.

Some say I'm the most handsome man in the world (my mom), others tend to disagree, but one thing is certain - I love to entertain. Whether it be through music, writing, or film, seeing people respond with a smile is worth more than a bag of gold. Figuratively obviously, because smiles are free and gold is very expensive.
