John C. McGinley, now star of IFC's "Stan Against Evil," grew up during the heyday of the classic 1970s sitcom, when producers like Norman Lear and James L. Brooks ruled primetime. For a young McGinley, there was something extra fascinating about Lear's "All in the Family." We talk to McGinley about his series, acting, Hollywood, and his wide-ranging career, which includes everything from "Platoon" and "Office Space" to "Scrubs." And we talk about his favorite episode of TV of all time — "All in the Family's" Season 2 episode "The Elevator Story." (Music by HookSounds.)
