[clips from Flower & Garnet, Falling Angels, Last Night]

Scott Smith (director of Falling Angels): There's so much... so much... bottled in Callum, and he's got this wonderful energy that's so... that's both so contained and so explosive at the same time. So when I added that to the characterization of Jim, I was like, oh, of course this going to be really [didn't hear that part].

[clip from Falling Angels]

CKR: It seemed hard, and I didn't really know how to do it. So I thought, well, uh, that's a good thing. You know, like I-  how do you do that? I love the idea, but I may be not right for it, and maybe they'll say you don't get to do it, and then I'll be, fine. Okay. Next time. But it was certainly something I was... attracted to.

CKR: I'm not big on this casting myself and star for... it's very instinctual and you go, uhm. It's just-  I mean-  I am coming up forty-three, and, uh, I'm going to get some... father roles. 'Cause you go what's-  you know, how many films are around in Canada? I mean how many have we made that-  you know. I'm going to be a dad sometimes. And it's hopefully interesting dads like this.

[clip from Curtis's Charm]



CKR: If Curtis's Charm came up I'd still do it, you know? It's... it's all the same-  I think I'd still make the same choice now, and go-  if I'd got the opportunity. But I'm also casting myself as... am I right for that. I'm not gong to put myself into something I don't think I am right for.

[clips from the set of Wilby Wonderful]

CKR: Like Daniel MacIvor's movie I just finished, who's-  you know, like uh... a gay character who's like-  sort of like-  who's the moral centerpiece of the movie. Which is great. And [he's] extraordinarily quiet, and very weird, and... yeah. So there. It's not locked into... one thing. And maybe that's-  the thing is my Canadian career-  it has been that.

[clip from Last Night]



CKR: If I'm not... keeping my foot in Los Angeles or-  like-  I'm scared. Because you have 9/11, and you have finances change around the world, and world economics change. There was a year where I worked 26 days. Out of the year. And if that's me, who's got a relatively established career in this country, I hate to think what it must be like for some of the others.

The video of the interview (3 minutes 24 seconds) is available at YouTube here, embedding is disabled. Since Scott Smith was interviewed as well, and Falling Angels was shot in 2003, I am assuming that is also the date of the interview.

I saw that interview on You-Tube! I love that last shot of him you used! He looks so adorable when he smiles with head down.

*puts cheerleader pom-poms on* New (old) interview, yay! I had seen this on YT before. He's so adorable. ♥

There's so much... so much... bottled in Callum, and he's got this wonderful energy that's so... that's both so contained and so explosive at the same time.

YES. This might be the most intriguing thing about him. Sometimes I wonder what his childhood was like. /hobby psychologist

And yeah, it's an old interview. It's actually the oldest CKR interview on YouTube. *g* But hey, it's an archive, so, you know?

Sometimes I wonder what his childhood was like.
Do you, hm? I... am trying not too. I'd feel weird. *shrugs* Anyway, the bottled up thing is probably the main reason why he keeps being so weirdly fascinating to everyone.

Yeah, I do feel weird. But I couldn't help it after reading the (awesome) 12 Steps to Stardom interview...

BTW, he totally needs to give more video interviews! :D

Oh yes, he has to give more interviews full stop. But mostly video interviews. (Apparently there was one about HI a while ago, and no one recorded it. Hmpf.)

And well, I said I am trying not to. Mostly I succeed. Ahem.

This was the first ever interview I watched of Callum, and I remember thinking "huh, he's posh..." when I heard it. *g* Weird maybe? but I was so used to Kowalski at the time, I'd never heard 'real' Callum before. Definite 'Me likey!' moment. :D

Adorable and fascinating, yes. ♥

I am trying to remember what was the first interview I watched. Hmm. Probably something dS related. I think it might have been that terrible cringe-inducing one from the English breakfast TV show. /c\

And hee, posh? Hm. Actually, yeah. I think I see what you mean. Still. Posh. Heh.

Hopefully, a dad like Jim? Stick to virtual dad some more? for, uh, practice?

It's not locked into... one thing. And maybe that's- the thing is my Canadian career- it has been that.
Yes, it is...

There was a year where I worked 26 days. Out of the year.
1993? Seriously, I wonder - have to go back to his filmography. Still, it does explain some choices.

Oh, and beautiful! Shining.

HEE! I was, uh, assuming that he meant 'playing' a dad. Let's hope so. *hopes so*

I think he meant later. Maybe 2001. There are only four projects listed at IMDB for that year: Torso, Dice, DaVinci's Inquest episode, Picture Claire, and Trapped. Some of that was probably shot the year before. (Of course some of the 2002 stuff was probably shot on 2001). Anyway, I think he means later. Than 1993. It still explains some of his choices. Just, sometimes there probably isn't much of a choice.

And yeah, pretty, isn't he? :D
