TS = Tessa Sproule, from CBC Infoculture
CKR = Callum Keith Rennie





TS: Can I ask you a couple of questions? Hello.

CKR: Hi.

TS: You know this is going on the web tonight?

CKR: That's creepy. That's just creepy to go on the web at night. I've been on the web... What am I supposed to do with that? [the microphone]

TS: Nope, no. I'll hold it, it's okay. Just ignore it.

CKR: I wanna sing.

TS: Tell me what, uh, what…you wanna sing? Go ahead, you can sing. What do you think about your role in Last Night (couldn't make out the rest) ?

CKR: That there was a vagueness in whether it was about lust or self-loathing or love and it wasn't really clear.

TS: What is it about?

CKR: I don't know.

TS: Okay, now if it were your last night, what would you have for dinner?

CKR: What kind of question is that?

TS: I asked Sandra [Oh] that and Sandra gave a very interesting answer.

CKR: I give the same answer as whatever she said.

TS: Whatever she said, you give the same answer.

CKR: Yeah. What would I have for dinner? I don't think I'd be thinking about dinner. Something other than dinner. I don't think I'd even be eating. You'd be cooking for yourself? I don't do that now, so... I guess the restaurants would be closed. I wouldn't be eating.

TS: Now, my cousin said that Last Night had a millenium sort of theme to it so why should we go?

CKR: Cause it doesn't really. It sort of does but it doesn't. And it's not like Deep Impact or Armageddon. It's not like that. It's about doing things in your time, the things that you should do, the things that you're putting off, the love you should be getting, the experiences you need to be having and not, you know? Because we don't know how long we have. That's what it's about.


Best Supporting Actor winner Callum Keith Rennie attempts a wink.
Infoculture overheard Last Night's director Don McKellar commenting that "Callum looks like he had a pencil stuck in his eye."

Images were shamelessly stolen without permission from the CBC Infoculture page. The Real Audio of this interview can also be found there.

Oh Callum, the more you bizarre the more I .

And honestly this might just be my new favorite interview ever. Because well,

TS: Okay, now if it were your last night, what would you have for dinner?
CKR: What kind of question is that?


He's got a point. And after Last Night he must of gotten so many stupid end of the world questions that really what else was he going to say.

He's so got a point. I guess it's not that easy to come up with good questions for interviews, but this one... yeah. Quite sad indeed.

I also rather like the: What is it about? - I don't know. exchange. Nice. ♥

Heeeeee. &hearts

No we know why he doesn't give a whole ton of interviews -- the interviewers gave up.

HEE! That would totally make sense. They really tried for a while, you know? But enough is enough.

Oh man I love his interviews. He's just so adorably vague and difficult and doesn't play into their idea of egotistical know-it-all serious movie star at ALL. *loves his quirks*

[it's like the final exam for Masters in Journalism is to interview him - if you can make it without stabbing yourself in the eye or seriously questioning why you want to do this for a living, then you get a pass!]

Hee! When else are we supposed to go on the web? Okay, so it's the middle of the day here, and I'm on it, but I'll also be on it tonight when I get home from work. Have I creeped you out, Callum?

Hee. I might be tempted to go that route myself after being interviewed by TS.

Is it true what I hear? About the... thing? \h?

Looks to me like he not only attempted a wink, he succeeded at it. Sheesh. The interviewer is an idiot and I ♥ Callum. \o/

And I want to hear him sing. :)

Well, yes, he definitely did. It does look kind of creepy though. And I think, yes, Don McKellar is right and the interviewer... er. Yes.

And I want to hear him sing. :)

Me tooooo. That is, I think? Maybe? If he sings better than he plays guitar?

Hehe.

Also double YAY! cause this fits perfectly into my spamming schedule at my friend's journal and I get to use the winking Callum icon. :D

Ha, I love him in interviews. All dodgy and I wanna sing and What kind of question is that?, and then SURPRISE. There's stuff like that last answer and the talk about his last dinner and yeah. HEART. ♥

CKR: I wanna sing.

Oh, Callum! *HEARTS*

TS: What is it about?

CKR: I don't know.

TS: Okay, now if it were your last night, what would you have for dinner?


Somehow, I feel like there should be a big pause after the "I don't know." HEEE!

That may be his most surrealistic interview. Or brattiest. Or both.

Stupid question (stupid cousin too): "Now, my cousin said that Last Night had a millenium sort of theme to it so why should we go?", wacky answer: "Cause it doesn't really. It sort of does but it doesn't."

And managing to conclude with the only sane sentence in this interview...

Bwahaha. He's awesome, right? ♥ Just getting into practice for that wee 'satan' thing. Taking down one interviewer at a time. *g*

Thanks for this! I always wondered where that pic came from. :)

CKR: I give the same answer as whatever she said.

I love love love when Callum gets bratty with stupid interviewers! Totally agree he would be the ultimate test for Journalism students. :-D
