You gain and lose different things in different mediums or different sectors of different mediums. There are liberties you get on tiny indie films in terms of not having to be designed toward a marketing demographic.
I don't know when acting came to be more about awards than about the work. Judging who's better than the other person shouldn't be part of why we're doing this job. It should be about entertaining people.
Sookie is about as radically different from me and a lot of the work I've previously done as you could possibly come up with.
If I don't do laundry today, I'm gonna have to buy new clothes tomorrow.
