Frakes with a beard or cleanly shaven?
Frakes with a beard, preferable, because it tickles when you kiss him.
Whats the most accidentally funny thing you’ve done this week?
Nothing I do is accidentally funny. It is all pre-meditated and carefully planned and scheduled. And if you steal one of my funny ideas, I WILL sue you.
Is there any project other than acting you’ve ever wanted to venture in to?
Yes! Deep-sea diving and mountaineering. There’s something about going up and down that turns me on.
How does it feel to be the coolest motherfucker alive?
Sunny, is that you?
What is your favorite Tea?
Easy. Yorkshire Gold. Any other kind of tea bag needs two bags. By the way, did you know that I am the man who introduced the concept of the double tea bag to the United States. Don’t you think that deserves some recognition…A Medal of Honor? And invitation to the White House? Or my own seat on the next space shuttle?
If you HAD to have hair, what kind of hairstyle would you go with?
What’s your favorite cocktail, sir?
A martini with Old Raj gin and very important, one olive. Who knew that you must never put an even number of olives in a martini glass. My son told me that martini drinkers are superstitious about even numbers of olives.
What’s your secret to staying so young, looking so good, and having so much fun? TELL US PLEASE!
Well the great man Sigmund Freud said the most important things for a happy and long life were love and work and I’ve had a cornucopia of both.
How difficult was it to film this scene with Ricky Gervais for Extras without the two of you dying of laughter? Also have you ever thought of venturing into more comedic roles?
Not difficult at all because the script was brilliant, but impossibly difficult because Ricky giggled all the time and spoiled so many takes. If you googled him and me, you would have already seen that.
As for venturing into more comedic roles, see the link to my Facebook above to watch the first episode! BLUNT TALK.
