Exclusive: Jonathan Silverman on Twitter; “I have my Betamax”

jonathanVeteran actor Jonathan Silverman guest stars in a powerful and serious role on Wednesday’s ‘Law & Order: SVU’ as a popular comedian faced with student protestors.

After performing his set at Tompkins Square University, his demeaning jokes about women and rape become more serious when a student is assaulted by two of his fans.

Tune in to see how this unfolds.

Regarding one of social media’s present crazes Twitter, which Silverman has yet to tackle, “I have my Betamax” said the actor best known for hit film ‘Weekend at Bernie’s. For those that don’t know the ancient Betamax, which then was the hottest craze, it was the first ever VCR with brick sized recording tapes.

“I’m just happy with technology from 50 years ago,” continued Silverman. “I’m amazed by it. And my wife, (Jennifer Finnigan) is on Twitter. And actually, she just got me into Instagram, so I’m going to start playing around with that. I’m just always a couple years late to the party with all this stuff. So, I’ll join soon, I promise.”

What next for Jonathan?

“I’m still doing the same old stuff. Just a ton of movies. I had a movie that came out a few weeks  ago called GBF. And a movie currently out called
‘The Hungover Games’ from Sony which is a spoof movie based on ripping off ‘The Hangover’ and ‘The Hunger Games.’

And I’m directing now which is so much fun and exhausting. I have one film, a National Lampoon comedy which ironically stars Dann Florek formerly of SVU and originally won me an award. I didn’t even know about it. They just Fed Ex’d it to me. I won a Best Director Award at the LA Comedy Festival a few months ago.

And then my wife, my beautiful talented wife, Jennifer Finnigan and I
directed a movie together with Geoff Stults, Mena Suvari, Kristin Chenoweth and Keenan Thompson and that’s called ‘A Bet’s a Bet,‘ a romantic comedy that we filmed up in Providence, Rhode Island.

And yes, just trying to stay busy and finishing that and my wife if I could brag again, leaves in a few days. Jen is off to The Promise Land. She’s going to be spending the next five months living in Israel doing a new series for FX by the ‘Homeland‘ creators and producers. It’s called ‘Tyrant.’

So I imagine when I can, when I’m not working I will be spending a lot of time on LA Airlines going back and forth for conjugal visits and support so that’s what’s in my most immediate future and certainly hers.”

Sounds like a plan.
