I received a script from Mitch Glazer called Rock The Kasbah and there it was. The idea I couldn't write. A humanistic, dramatic comedy that dealt with the Muslim world in Afghanistan. He based his script on many of the issues that were happening in Afghanistan and the stories he had been collecting from people like Tom Freston who have been going there for decades.
In the movie world you would not expect a smallish screening for a movie like Rock the Kasbah to have a night like this, but Bill Murray has great karma. Rock legends turned out on Friday night: Sir Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, to start. And there was Bill Clinton, whose silver head shone like a beacon at the room's center.
