Yes! That whole episode.
It was cool. It was really cool. I'm glad they used that take too. I mean, it was real! It was really real! If you put yourself in that situation, it's fucking CRAZY. I remember Ken was like, Ken Olin was directing that episode, and he was all, "Dude, just fucking GO for it, man."
And you did! I loved it! And I loved that they used the take in all of the promos.
Yeah! And you know! You know what's gonna happen!
And we were all like, "Dude! Next week -- WILL SCREAMS!" I actually reread that recap last night, because it's one of my favorite episodes and you're in it so much, and I had written something like, "Will's on a thousand different drugs and he's talking about 'fuzzy bunnies.'" And Will was like, "Oooh, tracers..." and then you were like, "AIIIIEEEE!" I loved that shit.
We were just psyched that you got something to do. And I read in one little piece, I think it was in Movieline, where you said something about the horrible crap they write about people on the internet boards. I mean, they're really rough.
I went back over your lurve thread in our boards, I went back over the posts for about four months, and in the beginning, we were all like, "He's really bugging me! Will's really annoying!" And I was like, "What we need to understand is that it's not HIM that's annoying us, it's the storylines!" And we all sort of started getting more positive, like, "Just give Will something else to do!"
We were dying for you to, like, get a gun or something!
Right. Give him somethin'! Well, any character who's constantly the victim, it's hard to --
Yeah, it's hard to identify or sympathize with them. I mean, after awhile, you're like, "Okay, you're a wingnut. Get on with it." I mean, that's the same thing we felt about Francie as well.
But now things have progressed...I mean, what I kind of liked is that, I think J.J. had in mind all along to have you sort of progress. I just think the first season was just sort of getting you oriented with characters, getting you to really like them.
People were just waiting for Sydney and Vaughn to get together and it's like, you know, you gotta give that a little more time. I can see the story arcs are going somewhere. Taking that time made it an even bigger payoff when Will started figuring shit out.
Yeah. Definitely. But I think that it's definitely starting to come around with my character.
