Oscar-winning producer Brian Grazer's movies range from the story of a mermaid in Splash, to astronauts in crisis in Apollo 13, to a schizophrenic mathematician in A Beautiful Mind. But they all have some things in common: a deep soul, a focus on identity, and real movie stars. Today, it's tough to get studios to make movies like that. Grazer tells us why. He also talks about his increased focus on television and how hundreds of conversations with all kinds of people led to his new book, A Curious Mind.
