NEW YORK (AP) - Hitting 82 hasn’t meant Christopher Plummer is slowing down. In fact, he’s hitting the gas.

Says the oldest Oscar winner: “I’ve never worked as hard as I have in my life at the present time and I think it’s wonderful.”

Plummer, who helped present at the Tony Awards on Sunday, is preparing for his stage performance in “The Tempest” to be shown in hundreds of movie theaters on Thursday. Later this fall, his “Barrymore” will hit movie screens across the world.

And in between, he’s spilling his guts: Plummer will this month present “A World or Two,” an autobiographical one-man show about his favorite writers at the The Stratford Shakespeare Festival in Ontario.

He says: “I’m a little bit scared that it’s too personal. But it never can be.”
