And, in fact, I see myself staying here for a while.
Where you live right now, can you see water and stuff like that?
I'm four blocks from the water. It's actually in a really bad neighborhood, but, like, because of that, it's sort of diverse and there are actually people walking around. You know, that have other lives.
Yeah. It's funky. Which I love. When I was a kid, we used to go to this open park just next to Venice and we used to go see bands play and stuff, during the summer.
Oh, really? That's pretty great.
Growing up in Long Beach was cool. But I don't know that I'd want to spend my formative years there.
You know, I've never been to Chicago, but I hear it's great.
Oh, it's awesome. It's a very small town but a big city. Except for my neighborhood which is, like, Latin Kings and shit.
Well, that's sort of comparable to my neighborhood. We heard, like, four gunshots the other night.
Excellent! Makes you feel really alive!
Exactly. We could die at any minute! Not like the rest of the world doesn't let us know that.
Oh, I know. On a daily basis. [pause] Did the press agent tell you that I know Zak?
You're kidding? Dude, he is literally one of the most talented actors I've ever worked with.
I know. I went to college with him.
I went to college with him.
Oh -- I thought you said, "I had sex with him."
[laughing] No! Although I think I wanted to at one point.
Um, you know, he has a little baby.
I heard about that.
Yeah. About a year ago.
I can't believe that.
Yeah. Did you ever know Heidi?
Yeah. I went to their wedding.
Oh, well, Jesus. Yeah.
Yeah, I knew Heidi when she was still in children's publishing and then she went into acting once they moved to New York.
Yeah, they just moved to Brooklyn and he's taking a break to look after the kid.
Dude. He's so fucking talented.
Dude. It's ridiculous.
I know. He's one of those people who just...I knew it when I met him, like, in high school. And then, when we went to college together, at the Theatre School, he just was one of those people who walked in and you went, "Oh. Okay. Well, I'm gonna stop now."
Yeah. Seriously. No, it's true. No, he's so fucking good. I hope he gets back into it.
