  • Interview (20:26, HD) is a talk with Jill Schoelen, who tries to be as diplomatic as possible concerning the finer points of "Cutting Class," but she admits her reluctance to take the part, well aware of the script's shortcomings. The now- retired actress describes her effort to make something out of her character, while production was brightened some by the employment of her best friend in costuming. Schoelen is honest about her relationship with director Rospo Pallenberg, who wasn't respectful of the acting process, trying to force his vision on bad material, triggering resentment from the star. Again, the interviewee is articulate about her experience, sharing her feelings about professional intuition and regret, unable to derive much joy out of the shoot, despite support from co-stars. Schoelen discusses her acting career in horror, and her thoughts about the ways the industry has changed for women, recalling her own struggles with pay and manipulation during her run in the 1980s. The actress also has lots of love for the fans.
  • Interview (16:25, HD) with Donovan Leitch provides another key perspective to the "Cutting Class" filmmaking experience, with the actor sharing anecdotes about his first day on set, meeting a still "country" Brad Pitt. Leitch describes his excitement to work on the picture, in awe of Pallenberg's previous screenwriting achievements, and he talks up his co-stars, spending downtime with Roddy McDowell, who shared parts of his life with his young co-star. The interviewee details how Pallenberg used the high school setting, trying to get as much out of the space he could, and he offers a choice anecdote concerning Pitt's impish behavior on-set. Leitch has a bright attitude about "Cutting Class," but he does mention career disappointments, watching as leading parts failed to stir up business at the box office.
