Speaking of TV, you broke out in one of my favorite shows of all time, which is “Felicity.”Mine too, mine too. I had never been to Los Angeles before I did that show.
I was an impressionable teenage girl when that show began.[laughs] I’m sorry. And obviously the people I met, and the experiences I had, and just to work with those people on your first big job, and J. [Abrams] and Matt [Reeves] and Keri Russell and people like that. So, you know, when anybody wants to come say “hi” about that show, I’m honestly more than happy that that happens; it’s a very nice thing. I can’t imagine what it would be like if it were on today, especially with things like Twitter and social media.
[laughs] Well, I mean, you know, in the last year, I’ve been trying to do stuff like that but it hasn’t really come together, TV shows and more stuff in that vein. And I can say very truthfully, and very honestly, that it charms me every time.
So, you know it feels like in the next few years I’ll probably be doing more stuff like that, as sort of my career progresses. Yeah I saw the preview for that — I haven’t seen the film yet — but I watched the trailer; it looked really good. One of the things I asked him about was if fans of that show pop up for him all over the place and bring it up, or have followed him throughout his career. I mean, mainly because that show to this day was such a huge part of my life, in every way.
So how is Keri Russell’s other man doing these days? So, you know, I’m a big fan of movies like “The Orphanage” and things like that.Once they arrive, however, they quickly realize that their house, and potentially the entire village, is haunted.Are the creepy ghost children that plague their lives a result of a 500 year-old slaughter by the Spanish conquistadors, or something much, much closer to home? I mean, that was a huge part of the draw to go and do this movie.It comes along at the time, it’s not something I step away and think, “Geez, let’s do another scary movie.” It’s just sort of what comes along at the time, and if it seems like something worth doing, I’ll definitely jump at the chance.Are you just aching to do like a Judd Apatow movie or romantic comedy or something?
