TOMMY LEE JONES: You know, there was a café you'll like this. Our trailers were parked on Martin Luther King Blvd. in Whiteville, Tennessee. And around the corner there was a place called the Dove of Paradise Café, and really, what made the whole trip worthwhile were the pork chops and the greens.
SUSAN SARANDON: Some good music there too.
TOMMY LEE JONES: Yeah, pretty good music.
SUSAN SARANDON: Outside of Memphis, I went to a club and it was really good.
TOMMY LEE JONES: I don't get out very much. I remember y'all went.
SUSAN SARANDON: It was at the very end of the shoot. ... [T]he old guy whose club it was died and his widow wanted me to know. I just got a message on my service.
TOMMY LEE JONES: Oh.
SUSAN SARANDON: Yeah.
TOMMY LEE JONES: Was it down on Mud Island?
SUSAN SARANDON: It was outside of Memphis. I have no idea where I was ... .
TOMMY LEE JONES: It was outside of Memphis?
SUSAN SARANDON: Yeah, yeah, it was right outside the city. It wasn't when we were on location. Although I did get a lot of homemade fudge and some moonshine that somebody gave me. I got a lot of presents there.
TOMMY LEE JONES: So now, you really understand what acting is all about. Pork chops and moonshine.
SUSAN SARANDON: It's the perks.
TOMMY LEE JONES: Yeah.
Valley of Elah is scheduled to open in Memphis on Friday, September 21st.
