"Pretty Lady, Right Here"
WC: And that's where Jay Baruchel lives, too, right? Or where he's from?
SR: Yeah. But we've never been there at the same time. It's really weird.
WC: Living in L.A., what do you miss about living in Canada? If anything.
SR: I miss my friends a lot of the time. And the cold weather. I love cold weather.
WC: I missed it, too, when I lived in Los Angeles.
SR: Yeah, God. It's just way too hot here. And ketchup[-flavoured] potato chips? They don't have those here.
WC: No, they don't, that's true! They hardly have any flavoured potato chips, except nachos.
SR: Best flavour, Ketchup. Like, by far. I don't know what the hell they're thinking.
WC: I agree. What do you like better about living in L.A. compared to living in Canada -- or in Vancouver, specifically?
SR: The enormous array of fast-food restaurants.
WC: Yes? Like?
SR: Jack in the Box and Fatburger? None of that in Canada. Taco Bell? That's pretty hard to find.
WC: I read that your background is in standup comedy, so you're a writer/actor/comic. Which of them do you like to do the best? Which is the most fun?
SR: It's hard. Acting is a lot of fun. The writing is...I don't want to say it's easier than the acting, but it's less stressful in a weird way.
WC: Well, it's more solitary, anyway.
SR: Exactly. The writing and acting I like a lot. It's hard to put one over the other. Standup comedy I don't like at all anymore. I'm glad I did it, though. It's all valid.
WC: As a writer...are you the kind of writer that just gets to it, or are you a procrastinator?
SR: I'm so good at procrastinating. At the same time, I can do it pretty fast. I'll wander around for hours and then have the most productive twenty-five minutes that anyone could ever hope for. And then I wander around for more hours. I pace a lot. I just walk around pacing in my office all day.
WC: You have an office at the studio?
WC: That's cool.
SR: Yeah, it is pretty cool.
WC: Do you have a lackey who will bring you lattes and stuff?
SR: Well, there are office assistants, actually -- yeah. We kind of do have lackeys, I guess.
WC: Does that help in the writing process?
