Q: Gone Girl the book is a huge hit, and the audiobook has been a big seller on Audible. What was it like to work on this project? What was your initial reaction to reading the book?
A: Kirby: I was drawn in immediately to this story. On the first page, Nick fantasizes about opening Amy's skull so he can sift through her thoughts. The question, "What are you thinking Amy?" set up Nick perfectly. I knew then where Nick was coming from and I tapped into the part of me that marvels at the wonders of women. They are a delicate, important, and confusing species. Case in point – how does Gillian Flynn know so intimately the thoughts, feelings, and insecurities of men like Nick and me? Read on...
Kirby Heyborne has already established himself as an actor, with star turns in movies like "The R.M." and "Saints and Soldiers." His is a voice that's familiar to many through his work narrating more than 150 books on tape, and from the five albums he has released as a musician.
But he's taken on the biggest challenge of his career since joining three others in the musical improvisational group The Society Improv Show. They are performing as part of the Davis Arts Council Summer Night With the Stars season on Saturday, July 21.
"It is one of the greatest aspects of acting, making stuff up..."
To see Kirby Heyborne’s eyes light up, just ask him about his calling as Cubmaster in his Latter-day Saint ward.
“I’m going on four years now and we’ve got a pack meeting tonight,” the 34-year-old said with animation. “Some people dread it, but I love it. I love the kids. Every pack meeting, it’s just me up in front, being myself, having a fun time. We do the cheers and everything. I like the improv aspect of it.”

April 12, 2012 - Salt Lake -- Kirby Heyborne is living the dream — even if that dream means fighting Los Angeles traffic.
"I’m just so happy that I get to do this," said Heyborne, on the phone while driving on the freeways of Los Angeles. "I find joy in the 405 traffic, thinking, ‘I’m in traffic in Los Angeles because I was just working.’ "
This Friday, the biggest role of Heyborne’s career will hit the nation’s movie screens, in the Farrelly Brothers comedy "The Three Stooges: The Movie."
It’s a career break that the 34-year-old Heyborne — whose shaggy blond looks suggest a younger, goofier Owen Wilson — owes to a beer commercial. (Don’t tell his bishop.) Heyborne worked with Peter Farrelly (who with his brother Bobby directed "There’s Something About Mary") on a Miller Lite ad.
"We fell in love with each other," Heyborne said. "Well, I mostly fell in love with him." Read more...

THE BEGINNER'S GOODBYE - Author: Anne Tyler
A new novel by Anne Tyler is always a reason to celebrate. As always, her exploration of everyday tragedy and the way people learn to cope with loss is, at times, comic, wise, and heartbreaking. Narrator Kirby Heyborne inhabits the forlorn Aaron and his dead wife, Dorothy, with a searing depiction of middle-class America and the drama of how a single random act can change everything.
