Talented actor/author John Lithgow came into the Shade 45 studios to speak a little on his latest character and children's book. John is currently starring in the ABC show, 'Once Upon A Time In Wonderland,' playing the White Rabbit character voice-over and also just released his 9th children's book, 'Never Play Music Right Next To A Zoo.' Peep Sway and the crew weigh in with Mr. Lithgow on what appealed to him about his White Rabbit character, what he does for fun, and which animal he would reincarnate to. Surprisingly he never wanted to be an actor as a kid, he wanted to a painter which explains his extra-curricular crafts and talents.
