Montel Williams on "The Piers Morgan Interview": "An opportunity to...really delve into thought-provoking questions"

Following his interview with Piers Morgan (airing Friday, 9pm ET/PT), we caught up with Montel Williams for a brief chat in the Green Room.

After a 17 season run with the Emmy Award-winning "The Montel Williams Show," the 55-year-old has plenty of insight into television interview programs, and thinks the host of "Piers Morgan Tonight" is certainly holding his own:

"Piers is great. The thing's about him, even though I was given kind of a parameter where the interview was going to be, you know, he asked questions that catch you over there, or rather over there, or I didn't think it would go there, so it was kind of cool," remarked Williams. FULL POST
