With hrgs, without hrgs, with fluffy hair, in drag. BADASS EVERY WAY
So the scene where we see you on the exam table after you’ve been shot through the eye… did you hit the gym a lot in order to get ready for that?
Well, it’s probably been about ten years since I had to take my shirt off for a scene. Let’s just say that when I saw the script I had about two weeks, and there were more pushups and curls done in those two weeks than in the previous two years combined. I keep myself in pretty decent shape but Milo [Ventimiglia, who plays Peter Petrelli] is 30 and ripped, and I’m almost 50 and not quite so ripped, so the bar has been set pretty high on our show. Talk about the fear of god when I saw that scene. I’ve had that happen twice on the show, once where I was given a two and a half page scene all in Japanese, and then where I found out I was going to be naked on the slab. I was like, couldn’t they maybe combine those two scenes? Have me speaking Japanese while I’m naked? Then I’d have a complete nervous breakdown.
