New York Times financial reporter Diana Henriques was the first reporter to interview disgraced financier Bernie Madoff after he'd gone to prison for orchestrating a $50 billion Ponzi scheme.

Now her book, "The Wizard of Lies," has been made into an HBO film starring Robert De Niro. Henriques (@dianabhenriques), who plays herself in the film, talks with Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson.

This segment aired on May 17, 2017.
