Ron Howard"It's almost like you're a kid that's snuck into the locker room at Yankee Stadium or something."

With an eclectic list of directorial triumphs -- 'Parenthood,' 'Apollo 13' and 'The Da Vinci Code,' to name just a few -- on his resume and a pair of Academy Awards for 2001's 'A Beautiful Mind' adorning his mantel, Ron Howard is back in the running for a couple more statues with his movie adaptation of Peter Morgan's acclaimed play 'Frost/Nixon.'

Moviefone chatted with the accomplished director about the film, which chronicles the behind-the-scenes pyrotechnics surrounding the 1977 interviews between playboy TV host David Frost and disgraced ex-President Richard Nixon; about (finally!) bringing the beloved sitcom 'Arrested Development' to the big screen; and about reprising the iconic role of Richie Cunningham.
