"Jason Is So Much Like A Sister To Me"

The Will Arnett Interview

WC: "Everyone's looking at me."

WA: Only when they are. [laughs] I live a very anonymous existence. I don't have a lot of worries in that department.

WC: In New York, I guess it's probably easier just to be in the crowd. In a good way.

WA: But also in the sense that...like, honestly, nobody knows who I am. So it's okay.

WC: And it sounds like that's how you want it anyway.

WA: It's great. It's just nice to have a life.

WC: So Monster-in-Law was good.

WA: It was fun. You know, I don't have a lot to do in it, and to be honest, I have no idea how it's going to turn out or even if I'll make it in. You know, it's one of those things, I imagine, that, once they cut these things down, you know, my character would be the first to suffer as a result.

WC: What is your part in the movie?

WA: I play Michael Vartan's wisecrackin' best buddy.

WC: Okay.

WA: Yeah. He's kind of a slimeball. Shows up at the rehearsal dinner with one young girl and then shows up at the wedding with another young girl.

WC: Right.

WA: You know.

WC: Yeah.

WA: But he's kind of all right. His name's "Kit."

WC: That really tells you everything you need to know, kind of.

WA: That's it.

WC: It's either that or "Chip."

WA: "Kit" or "Chip," and we'll call that a nutshell!

WC: Perfect! Going back to something we were talking about earlier: since I'm sure you always get asked about the bad aspects of being in a long-distance relationship, what are the pluses?

WA: Ummmmmm...there really aren't any.

WC: Aw! I wasn't even trying to trap you.

WA: No, I know. It's just not great. The only sort of good thing about doing what we do is that now when I go home -- at least last year -- you know, you have six months together, almost, straight. Really, before I did Arrested Development, the first couple of years that she was on the show and I was in New York, I didn't see her a lot anyway, because that show is so demanding. But we are both working this summer on various things, so it's going to be a little difficult -- but, you know. We'll see.

WC: Is it hard for you to act in a scene with Amy?

WA: Oh, no.

WC: I don't mean because she's bad...obviously. But do you get self-conscious? How is it different being in a scene with her as your love interest versus Marta 2.0?
