I Should Have Known

For anyone that is interested there is a transcript of James' recent Con appearance in Houston at the site Here. And unlike past Q&A's the people in attendance chose not to dwell on the past (thank you!). Most of the show related questions dealt with his time on Angel, the possibility of Buffy/Angel/Spike films, and any future plans.....which brings me around to my reason for posting all this. Most of you are aware of my laments regarding his career choices. Well, we finally got an answer as to why he a)isn't working or b)appears in the crap he does:

Q) We’ve all heard you say that you have family commitments that keep you from traveling away from the west coast. Do you think this is detrimental to your career?

A) No. I’m very confident. I just turned down an acting job in a NY TV show. I believe that careers are not the kind of thing that go down. I think careers are a circle. I don’t know where I am on that circle right now but I know to get to the top you have to come down to come back up.

Q) What kind of preparation did you do for the role of Bobby Comfort?

A) Good question. Zero. I was cast about 12 hours before filming. I returned from the Halloween Event and there was a script delivered. I called and asked about it and said I was too tired and wasn’t even going to open it. He said I had to. I said I just couldn’t. He said well, give me a number that would make you willing to do it. I gave him an insane amount and I was on a plane the next day.

I don't even think I need to comment on that last answer.

I just upated my icons. The majority are still Buffy related (15). But, I now have 10 Battlestar Galactica (OK, technically Apollo) and 9 House. The times, they are a changin'.
