"I Really Appreciate What You Guys Do"
CB: Awesome. Now, getting back to your character: we talked a little bit earlier on where his worldview is at the moment. You mentioned a sort of beaten-down apathy, and a lot of the posters have complained that so much bad stuff has happened to your character. In fact, on more than one occasion, it's seemed like Logan's entertained the thought of suicide. Do you think Logan now has a "me against the world" attitude?
JD: I think...yeah, I would say that, to some degree, you know, because he doesn't think that anyone understands him. Because, like you said earlier, people think they're right. Nobody thinks this kid is right but him. I think Veronica understands certain reasons...certain of his backstory that's made him be the way he is. I think she's the only person, because it's like, who the fuck gets this guy, man?
CB: Yeah. So do you think Logan retains any optimism at this point? Or do you think something good is going to have to happen to him, something passive, before he gets to that point?
JD: You know what? I don't think he's ever going to redeem himself, personally. I don't think he's going to make any drive to become better. If somebody were to step in and understand him, sit and listen to him, then I think he could come out of it, and I think that's where Veronica has the only power to do that, because he's not going to go, he's never going to admit, "Oh, I'm wrong, I want to change my ways," but with kindness and understanding, I think he could be brought to that realization.
CB: One other point about your character that I mentioned earlier is that he's impulsive. Do you ever see him sort of learning to plan ahead and think before he talks, or do you think he'll always be kind of a hothead?
JD: When I get the concept of the kind of character he is, I think he's going to say whatever's on his mind...impulsive behavior, less calculated to deceive somebody. I mean, he's good at scheming, I think -- that scene in the car with his dad in "Return Of The Kane" showed that. And he really understands people's feelings. He understands being the outcast -- he can understand anybody's situation, even though that might not be reflected in his actions.
