Ralph Williams plays Christopher Gorham's father, Professor Paul Tarson - a character very loosely based on Williams's true public persona as a famous literary and Biblical scholar. The little hoodie guy who Gorham is carrying is his son Ethan, who played a young Paul Tarson in the movie.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- A local University of Michigan icon and former student turned movie director sat down in the upper level of the M Den retail store on Ann Arbor's State Street and discussed their major involvement in a future motion picture release titled Answer This!

Former U-M Professor Ralph Williams and Director Chris Farrah hosted a table conference September 9 to discuss and preview the upcoming title and Williams' whole addition to its autobiographical feel.

On such a breakthrough role, Farrah admitted that "Many people in Hollywood think they've seen it all… until they've seen him."

Williams' first encounter with the project was mainly through an email sent by Farrah which was shrugged off early. "I've laid down many promises before I quit teaching, so that became an afterthought."

The same could not be said for Farrah, however, who continually bombarded Williams with emails of encouragement. It got to the point that "I was too embarrassed to say anything but yes," quipped Williams.

From the professor's test screening to his arrival on set the first day, the collaboration turned out to be delightful one for both participants. "He's used to a theatrical performance, since his nature is theatrical," said Farrah.

In terms of giving an early preview of the film both visually and expressively, Williams commented on Answer This as "a love song to Ann Arbor. There are some things students do here that I never knew about, as the [film will show]."

In addition to clips and free food, attendees were treated to special movie t-shirts that were graced with Williams' mug against a maize backdrop, appropriate for a more recent figure of Michigan campus lore.

Note: A special screening of "Answer This" is scheduled for October 8 at the Michigan Theatre in Ann Arbor. Tickets are $10 adults, $8 students, seniors and Michigan Theater members.

Paul and Naomi (Arielle Kebbel) skip class together for the first time... and wind up in a moonbounce on campus. Student Groups really do put up moonbounces on the Diag all the time for stress release during finals.
