Chris Farnsworth is the epitome of a real pro. The guy just shows up and gets his thing done, which in this case is writing a fabulous new thriller- Flashmob. Chris is a wonderful story and has a keen sense of pop culture so this interview covered a lot of different ground. I enjoyed his insights on the creative process as well as his view of Los Angeles and fatherhood.
