WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Hollywood director and actor Peter Bogdanovich is joining the faculty of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, where he'll teach two classes this semester.
Bogdanovich is best known for directing films including "The Last Picture Show," "What's Up, Doc?," "Paper Moon" and "Mask." Among his notable acting roles is that of Lorraine Bracco's psychiatrist in HBO's "The Sopranos."
Bogdanovich will begin teaching in the filmmaking school in Winston-Salem in the 2010 term, which starts Monday. He will teach two classes on directing.
Filmmaking school dean Jordan Kerner says every major film school in the country tried to hire Bogdanovich.
