Callum Keith Rennie interview at E!Online



E!Online guy: I hope you all remember Callum Keith Rennie. This Alberta boy rocked our world as Lew Ashby in Californication. Now he's back with a new show called Shattered. Let's have a look.

Callum Keith Rennie: Woah, this is, uh. This is great.

E!Online guy: Callum Keith Rennie, know it, learn it, and love it. We think he's one actor that's worth going gaga over.

Interviewer: How do you handle the whole sex symbol bit?

Callum Keith Rennie: Wow. It's-  it's just a lot of pressure. But, uh. You know. I get by with it. Uhm. I don't-  what kind of question is that? That's...

Interviewer: I don't know. I just wanted to see what you think

Callum Keith Rennie: That's insane.

Callum Keith Rennie: 'Cause I don't see myself that way.

E!Online guy: Well, we do! How can't we when he moves us with his edgy bad boy charm in hit shows like Battlestar Galactica and Californication. This time around he's ready to take his bad boy persona center-stage.



Callum Keith Rennie: It's a police drama, I'm playing a detective who has a DID, a Dissociative Identity Disorder which is brought up-  about by, uh, having his- seeing his family members be tortured and killed.

Interviewer: You carry around a extreme emotional baggage considering these heavy roles you often... considering these heavy characters you often inhabit?

Callum Keith Rennie: Does it look like I do?

Interviewer: Do you want the truth?

Callum Keith Rennie: Yeah. (starts lauging)

Interviewer: It all written on your face, Callum.

Callum Keith Rennie: Uhm, Do I-  No. It's actually some of the heavier ones that's fun.

E!Online guy: He just can't veer away from the heavy stuff. Cause soon he will be pitched against Mr. Canada himself, Paul Gross.

Callum Keith Rennie: We're working on a movie called Gunless in Osoyoos, and I'm the bad guy, he's the good guy, he gets the girl, I got a disfigured ear. He's got the Wayne's World hair. I've got good hair. And an excellent hat.




Found at E!Online, according to the website the interview was uploaded on July 6, 2009.

It's so strange seeing him in an E!Online sort of deal. What with the peppy music in the background while they're discussing potential emotional baggage resulting from his roles, and the whole DID/family tortured and killed deal. Not exactly subject matter that E's too used to, methinks ;P

He's got the Wayne's World hair. I've got good hair. And an excellent hat.

At least he's proud of that pretty, pretty hair. Thanks so much for sharing this!

It is, isn't it? The whole thing is all snappy and peppy. Weird.

And the HAT. Don't forget the HAT! *g*

How funny is this interview? And how adorable is he? Aw shucks. And all that pretty scenery in the background to complement his incredible beauty. Thanks for posting this, c. I may be watching it six times a day to get me through the first week of school.

Oh gosh, I agree. The first thing I thought was "My goodness, look how adorable and shy he's being." And that scenery!

How adorkable is he?Oh Callum. I may have watched this an unhealthy number of times.:D

Once again, you're my heroine, C. *smish*

Very adorkable? Extremely adorkable? Adorkable award worthy adorkable? I think it might be the last one.

And yeah, me too. I think it's because it's so short? Like, it's just 90 seconds, so what the hell *watches again* I did exactly that about 10 times today.

Aw, poor guy was SO uncomfortable with the whole thing! But still has his humor and his honest directness thing going on. ♥

And they used the kilt-golfing clip! \o/

I hope he teased Paul UNMERCIFULLY about the hair the whole shoot! :D
c_regalis
Aug. 29th, 2009 05:53 pm (UTC)
Uncomfortable, yeah. But I guess he gave it all back the interviewer by being so incredibly twitchy. I mean, honest, that can't have been fun for her. *twitch twitch*

The kilt golfing clip totally made up for their choice of the lamest Leoben clip ever. So I guess I can forgive them for that.

And I hope EVERYONE teased Paul about the hair. I hope they put a special on the DVD with hair teasing clips from the whole crew. Because, really, he totally deserves it.

Hehe!! Can't stop playing that clip over and over! He's so adorable and funny and uncomfortable. Aww.


We're working on a movie called Gunless in [...]
I think the missing word is Osoyoos. :)

*watches the vid again*

Osoyoos.
A-HA. *makes note to edit* Thank you!

He's so adorable and funny and uncomfortable. Aww.
And twitchy! ♥

I'm at the library, so I can't play or download the clip. Thanks for putting up a transcript and some pictures.

Poor Callum, he's just so uncomfortable with the whole interview thing and that business about being a sex symbol, which he totally is!

I'd love to see the behind the scenes thing of Paul and Callum fooling around after all these years. I'm sure they fell right back into the old routine of working together.

Plus, Callum gets the cool hat this time. *g*

*nodsnods* I want also the one where everyone mocks Paul about his hair. *g*

AND I want pictures of Callum with the excellent hat. Like, now.

HEE! You clipped it! Too bad you can't hear the facepalm. *g* Isn't he just adorable and funny and uncomfortable and fidgety? ♥

Oh my god, they actually know their shit. This is such an odd interview, I can't believe it's E!

Also, holy shit, Callum, fidget much? Poor thing. XD

Aug. 30th, 2009 01:35 pm (UTC)
No obvious mistakes were made! It's kind of amazing. Maybe they even meant to not mention Due South, and not, like, didn't know about it. It's quite impressive.

Poor thing. XD
Well, I am willing to bet that he also kind of loves it. Twitchy or not.

'I've got good hair. And an excellent hat.'
Step one: get an excellent hat.
Sorry, I couldn't resist.

'We're working on a movie called Gunless in [...] and I'm the bad guy, he's the good guy, he gets the girl, I got a disfigured ear.'
Oh, I was hoping for a twist where Paul plays the bad guy and Callum plays the good guy. I still can't wait to see Paul and Callum on screen together again.

Yeah, wouldn't that have been nice for a change. Hmpf. Maybe next time? *hopes*

That is some adorable and hilarious smacktalking right there.
Isn't it just? And just look at him being all hot and adorable and twitchy at the same time.

He looks so good!

Twitchy as he is, he actually does seem to be enjoying this interview.

One of the lower levels of journalists hell more like. Still, they both seem to have fun anyway.

But that's why we love him so much.
Well, it's ONE of the reasons, anyway. ♥
