Giving Thanks for Big Dreams with Kevin Clash and Elmo

Thursday, November 24, 2011

Throughout today's show, The Takeaway will be giving thanks, and looking back at some of our favorite interviews from the past year. Among them is a certain man who usually walks around the world completely unrecognized, despite the fact that he plays one of the most recognizable characters in television history. He was mentored by the great Jim Henson. And he has more daytime Emmys than most TV actors accrue in a lifetime.

His name is Kevin Clash, and he is the subject of a new award-winning documentary called "Being Elmo," which is currently in limited release.
