Alan Arkin was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., a fact that will surprise almost no one who has heard his voice. Here’s a surprise though: he spends almost half the year in Canada. That was the fun fact I learned after speaking with the Oscar-winning actor on the set of the terrific Netflix comedy The Kominsky

My favourite new show of the past year stars one actor in their seventies and one in their eighties. No, not Grace and Frankie (although that would qualify; Lily Tomlin is 79 and Jane Fonda is 81). I’m talking about The Kominsky Method, a lovely late-in-the-year surprise from Netflix. All eight episodes are currently available
