Harry Connick Jr. Talks About “Dolphin Tale” and Filipino Food, Yum! 

I love Harry Connick Jr.! He’s sweet, charming, and he remembered me from my first time meeting him for the movie “New in Town.” In “Dolphin Tale,” the actor plays Dr. Clay Haskett, the inspiring man who runs the Clearwater Marine Hospital.

It’s always a pleasure talking to this multi-faceted gentleman! In this interview, we talked about:

The incredible bond between humans and animals
Meeting Winter for the first time
What attracted him to his character?
The film’s “too good to be true” if it’s not based on real-life
Working on the set
His real-life counterpart, David Yates
Shifting gears, the actor and I decided to talk about Filipino Food! Yum! Balot, dinuguan, and many more!


Here's more info on "Dolphin Tale" from Yahoo:

Swimming free, a young dolphin is caught in a crab trap, severely damaging her tail. She is rescued and transported to the Clearwater Marine Hospital, where she is named Winter. But her fight for survival has just begun. Without a tail, Winter's prognosis is dire. It will take the expertise of a dedicated marine biologist, the ingenuity of a brilliant prosthetics doctor, and the unwavering devotion of a young boy to bring about a groundbreaking miracle -- a miracle that might not only save Winter but could also help scores of people around the world. The real Winter, who plays herself in "Dolphin Tale," today serves as a symbol of courage, perseverance and hope to millions of people -- both able and disabled -- who have been touched by her remarkable story of recovery and rehabilitation.
