More Bang For the Buck With Chuck

The Chuck Lorre Interview

TWoP: Not yet. I just heard about it.

CL: We found it on youtube. We were going to shoot a video for the song this summer and we found this thing on youtube. This guy is a student in London and he did it as part of a school project. And we just all agreed we can't do any better than this. It's phenomenal. So that's our video. And I think he got a good grade.

TWoP: I would hope so. So how was Comic-Con for you?

CL: It was exhilarating. I had never been to Comic-Con before and I wasn't really sure if we belonged there. And our reception was, it was, I dunno... I was stunned. I was hoping for a few hundred people in a small room. But what was it? Was it a couple of thousand people? Standing room only and they were so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the show. We left San Diego three feet off the ground. Everybody in the cast. It was a heartwarming experience to see that the show had meant something to people. It was as meaningful to the people watching it as it is to us. That was terrific.

TWoP: Comic Con is a big deal. Those fans will let you know if they don't like something.

CL: Yeah. I got that. What I took away most from that was the whole atmosphere of it was a celebration of what people love. And the costumes and all that stuff is just an aspect of that celebration. I just thought the energy there was terrific. We walked around. Just wandered around the convention floor and it was just fun. The whole experience was wonderful.

TWoP: Right. So now that you've done a sort of Two and a Half Men/CSI crossover, are we ever going to see a Two and a Half Men/Big Bang crossover?

CL: We are toying around with the idea of Jake on Two and a Half Men being tutored by Leonard or Sheldon.

TWoP: Okay. That would be funny. Well Angus T. Jones cracks me up anyway.

CL: Yeah you know. And what will happen is Charlie and Alan will go to pick him up and get in the elevator and get trapped.

TWoP: Nobody is supposed to get in that elevator!

CL: If anybody gets in that elevator it would be Charlie and Alan.

TWoP: That's very true. So I know it's kind of a touchy subject but Two and a Half Men is nominated for a bunch of Emmys. Are you looking forward to it?

CL: It's always fun to get to go to a party.

TWoP: Okay.

CL: I mean, you get to see people that you haven't seen in a long time. You only generally see other writers you know when you're walking around with a picket sign.
