My favorite laser disk ever was the laser disk for The Graduate, which had a commentary track that wasn’t even the filmmakers, it was a professor, some film criticism guy who just happen to be this amazing commentator who went off into the whole theory of comedy.
You don’t have a lot of time you have to get it right. It’s amazing how they create these episodes in such a short amount of time. They lavish a lot of care and money on each episode, and they just look terrific.
You have to wait for a big star to come in and generate interest on a project, and now that has become me, which is an amazing blessing.
As far as the girls in my grade, it was always kind of an on-and-off thing. When all this came up, it was kind of hard. My guy friends and my family friends have been so amazing and supportive.
What’s great about TV, and what I love about being on ‘Parenthood,’ is you have this family. I’m now going on four years of working with the same 100 people, and that helps you feel like your life has more roots. It’s more conducive to having a family, and you’re staying in town. So that part is amazing.
