Q: What was your first reaction after you read the script?
A: I really liked it.†
Itís a good Christmas story.†
Itís a story about a guy who gets swamped by all the success he suddenly
achieves and loses his boundaries and his perspective on whatís important in
his life, such as his wife and little girl.†
And then you see him kind of realize what heís doing and where heís
going and how he gets back to himself.†
Itís a story of redemption.† And my
character, Michael, is kind of a spiritual advisor and his conscience. † Iíve been kind of delegated to help him see
himself, get some objectivity on his behavior amid all this success and not
lose his soul, keep his values and understand whatís really important, which is
love, family and friends.
Q: What are some of your thoughts about the price of fame?
A: You can lose your soul.†
Fame has a lot of glitter and camouflage. † When it goes, youíve got nothing. † Robís character very nearly steps into the abyss and really
forfeits his life.
Q: Did you like Michael when you read the script?
A: Yeah, I realized that somebody who cared about Rob had
delegated me to look out for him.† Itís
really breaking privacy boundaries in a rather flavored way. † But in the context of the script, itís
acceptable in the story.†
Q: Where does the drama come from in A PERFECT DAY?
A: I think seeing Rob get swept up in the extravagant
success heís having and hoping that he saves himself is where the drama

I think the drama is whether heís going to recover. † I think thatís what people want to see, especially around
