Cole Morton, reporter for The Telegraph, recently caught up with David Blaine, still riding after his last special Real Or Magic. Although he teases future plans, Blaine is too coy (and smart) to actually reveal his next big project. What Morton does get out of the magician, though, is a glimpse into his fears about growing old and complacent. “The hunger dies.” Blaine said, “That hunger, that curiosity, that desire that creates the ultimate passion to do something new.”

Other topics include rivals, Blaine’s love of magic, what the magician is currently reading and whether or not that meat skewer really did go through his hand. You can read the entire interview on the Telegraph’s website.
