Everything goes in a cycle, and right now, distribution is changing. Audiences might be kind of sick of these giant blockbuster movies with all these special effects where blue people are running around and the hero is some non-human entity. These are all great movies, but I think that there’s definitely room for new voices to come out.
The capacity for loving strangers, whether one thinks of them as fictional beings or stars one will never meet, is a profound reflection on the new consciousness whereby every individual leads his or life while aware of all the billions of other people on Earth. Perhaps it is a fantasy or a fallacy that we can feel for so many strangers. Perhaps it is a mask for selfishness.

It’s hard work. It’s really hard work, but it’s really interesting. We have this camera, I think it’s called a SimulCam, and when you play it back, you can see the giant in the scene you just shot. It’s incredible. You’re reacting to a tennis ball that’s way up there, then when you watch it, it’s this huge giant’s face on it. Wow. That’s cool. I just can’t wait to see it when it’s all edited together and the special effects are all crystal clear. It’s going to be, hopefully, amazing.
To know about the movie [jack the giant Slayer], wow. It’s an adventure, there are so many special effects flying around. It’s going to be really fun, definitely.

I mean, I have done scenes with animals, with owls, with bats, with cats, with special effects, with thespians, in the freezing cold, in the pouring rain, boiling hot; I’ve done press with every syndication, every country; I’ve done interviews with people dressed up as cows – there’s honestly nothing that’s gonna intimidate me!
