Tim – Would you call it a grind
Courtney – No I miss having a schedule that I miss the fact that I was a lot less busy when I know I was doing a show cause we know, you too right, cause you knew what you were doing everyday and that was your life. But now that our lives our expanded I’m so much more busier trying to fill up the time. Not trying to fill it up but it fills up with other things.
Tim – Other things I so agree. I was close to Disney and I went to stage four and had breakfast and went down and rehearsed and it was all lines up and I agree totally. Cause no matter what I finish a movie and then there’s down time and I go what am I going to do now then its back to the production office and sit there and go what are we doing. And no one likes me when I’m not on the road because then I’m just organizing peoples office all day. Shouldn’t that lamp be over there?
Courtney – Please come over and do mine.
Tim – Your office?
Courtney – Yeah cause no one likes to do that but me and I forgot you and I are very similar. We’re born two days apart.
Tim – I’ll go right in there and redecorate.
Courtney – We’ve never met before we had dinner one night before with the director before we went to Toronto and we had a nice time and then just immediately it just worked. It worked. We had one joke we did every single day on the movie and I don’t think...
Tim – We pulled our pants down and showed everybody our bottoms. Oh no that was in my head I’m sorry that wasn’t the actual joke we did. Did I just say bottoms?
Courtney – Yes I’m so embarrassed for you.
Tim – (laughs) For me. (talks) So embarrassed for me I’m so embarrassed for you that’s so weird. Look at this I’m holding in my emotions now (talks) I don’t like this this is body language and I’m not liking how she said that.
Courtney – in Zoom. (talks) I play sort of a comic book obsessed kind of nerdy scientist that is very clumsy and I am just in awe of him, that’s what I play and you know what it was very easy to play because lets face it
Tim – She is in awe of me.
Courtney – I am.
Tim – It’s not like your character at all I never thought about that because she’s really a control freak on TV anyway and now in this she’s not at all. That was, I never thought about that.
Tim – Grunts (talks) No
Courtney – He’s so mean to kids when he’s off screen
Tim – It’s like cats the more you dislike them the more they wont leave you alone and what it is I know its inappropriate for children because generally that’s me I cant stop my mouth, I’m just a potty mouth and so when I’m around children..
Courtney - And yet you say potty. I’m sorry to interrupt you bottom and potty it’s cute.
Tim – Bottom and potty you can say.
Courtney – you know you can say them.
Tim- You cant say ass and crapper that’s the thing you’re trying to avoid.
Courtney – Sorry
Tim – You’re pushing me.
Courtney – Ok sorry.
Tim – I I I I my preference is high-tech science fiction horror that’s my preference movie that’s I just never get to do because who wants to see me in a with a monster it’s just not going to be although I think it would be funny but so I know how to work with kids cause I treat them like adults. I mean not literally but I respect there space and I’m not guchi guchi that kind of stuff.
Courtney – no it’s not mean but I’d like Tim to answer that question,
Tim – Why cause I’m a geeky type person.
Courtney - No because you love comic books (talks) My character was but you’re asking Courtney now. Uhm so..
Tim – Just trying to (?) the boundaries. You’ve been a lot of psycho analysis haven’t you ‘you’re asking Courtney now’.
Courtney –well I didn’t do that kind of research to be honest with you.
Tim – I love comics though
Courtney - Yeah he love them.
Tim – And I appreciate the word geek I don’t care what you call me. I’ve read them since I was a kid my mom made us throw them all out. We would have been millionaires I had Spider-Man number one, I had Thor number one and I had Iron Man number one and my mom burned them.
Courtney – Burned them?
Tim – She threw them all out whatever I don’t know what she did she probably sold them that’s how she got the house., But they were enabling me live through somebody else they were strong and powerful and still had weakness that’s what superheroes are there never perfect they always have little problems and it just gives kids and me a hope that you know the helplessness I felt as a kid you know that these guys, I don’t know what the actually psychology is but it made me the man I am today. Wears leather tights around the house.
