Hal Holbrook, star of stage and screens of all sizes, gives one of the most powerfully insightful, raw and passionate interviews we've ever presented on Shout!Takes, as he discusses his memorable nine-episode series, The Senator. Decades before Aaron Sorkin's The West Wing, The Senator dramatized the work of an idealistic U.S. politician and introduced America to social, economic and environmental topics that are rarely -- if ever -- addressed on television. The series won a Golden Globe and five Emmys (of its nine nominations); one of them going to Holbrook for his role as Senator Hays Stowe.
