Who's the best Batman? I would have to say it's - what's his name? Adam West! He's the best. [laughs] I'm sorry, but I find it irresistible not to include myself. In all seriousness, though, my Batman was entirely different from all the other incarnations. The TV series was pretty much all tongue-in-cheek, rueful silliness.

I've heard that you started out as a set dresser, but became an actor to have more control over how a film turns out. My heroes growing up, going back to the silent days, were actors like Buster Keaton and Clint Eastwood who empowered themselves as filmmakers.

How do you like to watch movies?I tend to watch them at home, but frankly, I don't watch many. I hardly go to the theater because it's kind of a pain in the ass, and many movies are overrated. When I do go, I take my children. You see, I love making movies. I'm just not crazy about watching them. I like music better.

Besides giving your album a definite retro-'80s feel, it seems like you consciously avoided the heavy drum sound you've been associated with over the years. You're right. I've learned a lot from painters, actually. They'll lead you to a first impression of a work, but then the more you look at it, the more you realize they've sort of tricked you.

Your new coffee-table book, Billy F. Gibbons: Rock + Roll Gearhead (MBI; motorbooks.com), is filled with lavish photos of two of your favorite things: cars and guitars. Indeed.

Anything you can tell me about what happens in Season 3? I just know that there are a few new characters and that we'll be delving into the story of The Others a lot more. And, um, some people are going to be dying, which is, um, interesting. And that's as much as I know.

So nobody is safe? Nobody is safe. That's correct.

Josef, that is a cool publication you work for.

Well, thank you very much. I like Sound & Vision. I'm not quite the home theater guy, but I'm aspiring to be [laughs].

You played the first woman president on your TV series Commander in Chief, and now you have the honor of being the first woman to be featured in this column. Oh wow. Well, it's a series of firsts.

How did a nice Midwestern guy like you end up playing an urban Jewish professor in The Squid and the Whale? Hmmm. The short answer is I guess I understood the part - I could see the comedy in it. When I expressed that to [writer/director] Noah [Baumbach], he said, "You're one of the first people to tell me they think it's funny.

I have to borrow a line from your song "Intuition" and ask: Are you still "just a simple girl in a high-tech digital world"? A little bit, yeah [chuckles].

The finale for Season 5 of Nip/Tuck just aired [on February 19]. Are you happy with how the year went on the show? Yeah. The overall tone of this season was pretty cool. I grew to like the direction they took it this year.

As a performer, you've done everything. Do you prefer TV, movies, singing, or the stage? I would say the Broadway theater - it's so much at the heart of things. But I just signed on to do a new sitcom on NBC, Twenty Good Years, and it's incredibly fun. We're going to have a ball on that show. It's a real treat to vary my diet.

Football season's over, but you'd never know it from the legions of gamers who've made EA's Madden NFL a year-round obsession. [A shorter version of this interview was printed in the May issue.]

A lot of the Seinfeld props were recently donated to the Smithsonian. Was Kramer's Merv Griffin set included?You know what went that was mine? The puffy shirt - that's it. But I would have gladly given them my shoes.

In a recent interview about The Aristocrats, you said, "It's the singer and not the song." I see the Aristocrats joke as having a Grateful Dead/Phish kind of vibe where people start within the same framework, but then go off in their own directions. It's very much improvisational, though it's more bebop jazz than Phish.
