A New Biography Describes an Encounter with Peter Jackson

June 2, 2012 at 12:19 pm by Momosanla  - 

Back in 2009 The One Ring posted a humorous video of ex-patriot John Dybvig explaining to talk-show host David Letterman about his adopted homeland New Zealand. For more than 20 years the San Francisco native has been making a name for himself in the entertainment and sports industries in New Zealand and has just released his autobiography “The Two of Me”. This book is a frank account of how Dybvig was able to turn around his life after years of self-centered, self-sabotaging behavior and find true contentment. Included is a chapter about working on the 2005 feature King Kong and encountering director, Peter Jackson. The audio book is narrated by the author and is available for download on iTunes. In case you’re interested, John offers a US accent workshop with The Equity Foundation for any Australasian actors out there.

  1. A short note:

    You may wish to modify the word “ex-patriot” to its correct spelling, “expatriate” or even the popular shortened form, “expat.”

    An “ex-patriot” implies that the person is no longer patriotic to his former residence/country.
