You’ve got to just go do what you do – you can’t really worry about who was attached to the movie before.
Probably the most difficult things were my favorite parts. The make-up and the big fight sequence at the end of the movie were very difficult but really fun and challenging.
Well, when I did Underworld 2, I was in Vancouver for five months and I was reminiscent to be back up there.
And when I have lived elsewhere, every two weeks I have to fly back to LA. Even New York directors go there to audition. So I have to be there to a degree.
There’s nothing worse – I don’t like listening to actors talk about the process, especially when – I mean, for me I’ve played a lot of guys, dudes, boys in a sense and this was a challenge for me just to play that official character.
I’d like to do the young cadet thing again for sure, but that’s why I wanted to do this, to see if I could do it. I took the scenes out of the script and put them together and read them as one little arc, story and that seemed to work.
I didn’t really know what I wanted to do, and then I got this call from a casting director in Los Angeles. She remembered me from something years before, and she called my mom wanting me to audition for this thing.
Duets is about six people, so it’s like three different movies – three different duets. I was on the set 18 days, spread out over three and a half or four weeks.
I don’t think I would be getting any of these movies without that show, and that’s a strong show, a great fan base and it’s helped me out a lot. It took me out of Canada and brought me down to the states and gave me my career basically.
I remember listening to Cube’s music when I was like 14 years old, my friends listening to it up in Toronto.
