Seth Green - About all his projects

Citation :

While on the scene at Sunday’s much
talked about VMA Awards, caught up with self-described "weirdo"
and Emmy nominee (for his Cartoon Network hit Robot Chicken) Seth Green
to inquire about what he may or may not be up to in the near future.
Here’s what he dished:

’’HEROES’’: It’s true, Green and pal Breckin Meyer have
joined the cast of the NBC drama, so naturally we begged the actor to
give us some hints to their upcoming arc, and in typical Heroes
fashion, he was 100 percent vague. "They have a first page that says,
like, ’Keep our secrets,’ " Green says. Still, we did get this out of
him: "We’re starting on set Monday. That’s what this whole beard is
for." Facial hair aside, Green admits he would’ve done anything for the
gig: "I’m a really big fan of the show," he says, "and I kind of begged
for a long time to see if there was anything I could do."

’’ROBOT CHICKEN’’: Green is also keeping mum on who you
can expect to see on future episodes of the animated series, but he did
report there will be a little something for fans of Darth Vader: "We’re
working on a second Star Wars special, it’s going to come out in
November. Carrie Fisher’s in it."

A SEQUEL TO ’’THE ITALIAN JOB?’’ Green wants to clear
up one important detail about the supposed follow up to the 2003 crime
thriller (tentatively titled, The Brazilian Job): it ain’t happening.
"That’s been listed as ’In Production’ for over four years, and maybe
you’ll print this and someone will actually stop saying that!" he says.
"There are a couple of scripts that have been written, but in the last
six years since we made the movie, Paramount’s hierarchy has changed
hands four times and it’s never seemed to be a priority for the studio
to make the movie." With the success of the film’s cast (Mark Wahlberg
and Charlize Theron have been nominated for Oscars, Mos Def for an
Emmy, and Jason Statham hit big with his Transporter series), says
Green, "You would think that they would make the movie. There’s enough
of a fan outcry for it, but we just haven’t been able to get the studio
to greenlight it."

Seth Green - "Freshmen" Movie - Interview

his role as the as the unflappable werewolf Oz on Buffy the Vampire
Slayer to his part in co-creating TV’s lo-fi nerd-satire Robot Chicken,
Seth Green has almost effortlessly amassed an adoring fanbase. The
actor hopes to expand on that niche appeal with his first directorial
effort for the big screen, an upcoming adaptation of his popular comic
book, The Freshmen. We spoke to the ever-amiable, indefatigable Green
about tweaking the title for the big screen, seeking advice from George
Lucas, and his upcoming cameos in Entourage and Heroes.

Green conceived the story for The Freshman with Hugh
Sterbakov, who penned the title with an assist from illustrator Leonard
Kirk; Green and Sterbakov are currently scripting the film. Set on a
socially stratified college campus, the Top Cow series follows the
misadventures of a group of dejected students who acquire peculiar
abilities after a lab mishap irradiates them.

io9: How did you decide The Freshmen would make a good movie?

Seth Green: Hugh and I conceived this a couple years
ago as a film. What we found was the marketplace at the time was really
unreceptive to comic-book properties. X-Men had just come out, and
people were still hesitant to believe that a comic book could translate
cause it had so much baggage [plot-wise]. So we had an opportunity to
make a comic, and we said, “Well, fuck it. Let’s just entrench it in
the marketplace.” Although the movie actually will be different than
the book.

io9: It would have to be. First of all, there would be a whole lot of vomit.

Green: [Laughs] You know, honestly, Elwood [who can
intoxicate others when he’s drunk] remains largely unchanged. He’s got
it hard because he’s a straight-A dude who doesn’t really indulge in
anything, and his views are so conservative. And the one night that he
tries something new, like lets his hair down [by getting drunk], he
gets fucked for life.

io9: So how will the movie be different from the book?

Green: The kids aren’t going to wear costumes,
obviously. Except for Paula [who can enchant anyone into falling in
love with her] and [the group’s powerless leader] Norrin. Cause Paula
makes her costume, and Norrin—the costume’s all he’s got. We also had
to eliminate characters just for the sake of telling a story in the
most concise way. I don’t want to really talk about who, but it’s a
heartbreaking thing to do.

io9: Is Ray, whose superpower is essentially having a huge penis, going to stay?

Green: Oh yeah. What I’m touching on are these
personalities, and what happens to kids and where they’re coming from
and what they go through. And how they become who they are. And that
kid, that path—oh my gosh! All I can say is it’s gonna be heartbreaking.

io9: Not to be crass, but I just have visions of Boogie Nights.

Green: It’ll never be that graphic. But he does use it
as a weapon. You know, it’s long and indestructible. [Laughs] I mean,
there’s a protective sheath constructed for him.

io9: Clearly, this is an R-rated movie!

Green: Yeah, definitely. Your college experience should be rated R.

io9: Will the movie cover the origin story told in volume one, which also touches on the mad scientist’s evil plot?

Green: Essentially. So much of what works well in a
comic won’t work well in a movie. So thematically we’re just addressing
it. The Beaver [a character who’s turned into the animal] is prominent
in the film, but I don’t know that we’ll get into that dam.

io9: You’ve said you’re looking at a $35 million budget.

Green: Hey, it’s all estimations. We haven’t budgeted
the script or anything like that. But I know that I need this Beaver to
exist in real life. And I know that’s gonna be expensive
computer-generated graphics, over like 15 percent of the film. This
isn’t an effects driven movie, though. This is a character-driven movie.

io9: Sort of like a purgatory tale.

Green: It’s similar to that. We do play it for laughs,
but at the same time this is a very grounded story about real kids
dealing with something significant. The changes that you go through
when you leave high school and go to college are huge. You’re embracing
your own identity for the first time, telling the whole world who you
will be for the rest of your life. This is a world where superpowers
don’t exist. And I’m not talking first season of Heroes. This is today,
this is actually happening, this is right now.

io9: Did you go to college?

Green: I did not go to college. (A) I had terrible
entry scores—I’m a bad tester, and (B) I was already working
professionally in the field that I was pursuing. So it just seemed
silly for me to spend my time in a scholastic environment. [Instead] I
went to the used bookstore and just bought a ton of stuff that I wanted
to read.

io9: Wouldn’t it be tough, then, to direct a movie about the college experience?

Green: Oh, I spent a ton of time at colleges. All of my
friends were in school, and that’s where I’d discuss with them what
their experiences were. It was really just responsibility for the first
time. For the first time in someone’s life, they set their own alarm;
they do or don’t go to school; they do or don’t eat properly. You know?
They do or don’t do all the things they’ve been instructed are crucial.
That’s what I’m fascinated by.

io9: How far along are you with the script?

Green: Well, we wrote a script and we wanna take another pass at it, but we got it on paper.

io9: Have you sold it?

Green: I spent a bunch of time talking to George Lucas
about how he makes his movies. And I really like his philosophies. So
we’re writing it, and we’re figuring it all out. I spent a good deal of
time producing over the last eight years, so this kind of thing I can
handle. We’re gonna partner up with somebody we believe in and who
believes in us, and make the movie that we wanna make. At press time,
we haven’t picked a producer.

io9: Would you reach out to George Lucas or Joss Whedon for advice about directing?

Green: Absolutely, yes, always. When you’re fortunate
enough to get to work with masters, without being a nuisance, take
advantage of that.

io9: When would you ideally like to start production?

Green: Um, well, schedule really becomes a product of
availability. Hugh has a show that he’s sold to the Sci Fi network.
He’s doing a bit of work on that right now. I’ve got Robot Chicken—we
just wrapped [another] Star Wars [episode], which is gonna be out Nov.
16. Then I have a movie in April. So it always becomes about where do
you put it? But what I will say is that I wanna make this movie. I’m
really excited about it. I’m really excited to show it to people.

io9: What do you think of Hollywood’s almost indiscriminate love for comic books now?

Green: It’s making a universe. It’s creating, like, a
taxable marketplace. I think that’s what Marvel’s been doing so
succinctly: trying to combine all their franchises into something
that’s just really serving the fan. What’s nice is that Hollywood
studios are essentially banks and don’t really care what the content is
as long as it’s turning a profit. They become more and more willing to
trust these storytellers who’ve been telling good stories all along.

io9: Yet if you talk to most comics creators and editors, they’d probably argue they’re more or less left out of the process.

Green: Well, you know, everybody’s got their process.
As a filmmaker I’m just excited by the prospect of a filmmaker putting
their stamp on something that they already love. Jon Favreau was a huge
Iron Man fan and look what he gave us.

io9: But there are comic-book companies that solely want to develop…

Green: I know. There is no such thing as selling out
anymore. 50 Cent who is the hardest gangster—or at least sold as the
hardest gangster around—made $50 million selling Vitamin Water. If you
don’t have a clothing line and a record or a comic book or a scent,
then you’re just not participating. And it’s a funny thing to accept,
as a citizen of the world. I hope this doesn’t sound disingenuous, but
I’m not driven by financial gain. All my life I’ve liked to make stuff.
And I’ve found myself in a position of opportunity to make some of the
things I’ve been wanting to for a long time. And I’m just taking every
advantage of it, absolutely.

io9: How big of a comics fan are you?

Green: I think there’s a misconception about me and the
size of my comic-book geekiness. I grew up reading comic books. My dad
and I did together, and I learned how to draw and I got interested in
that storytelling. But around ’96, I just flat-out stopped buying them.
The whole collecting market started frustrating me cause all of these
companies were doing these ridiculous multiple printings with different
covers to gouge the average fan. And I just found the whole thing
grotesque and turned my back on it.

io9: Do you want to make anymore comics?

Green: I didn’t write The Freshman. We co-conceived the
characters and the stories. I haven’t really given [creating more
comics] a lot of thought. You know Geoff Johns is a buddy of mine, and
he writes comics all the time. Oh my gosh, that guy is awesome. He and
Matt [Senreich, Robot Chicken’s other co-creator] are going to make a
movie. But, no, I haven’t really thought about it cause I haven’t had a
story I wanted to tell in that medium.

io9: If Joss asked you, would you ever consider taking on the Buffy comic?

Green: See, I don’t think I’m instinctive for those
characters or that content. I always put myself in their hands. I was
like, “Write me something awesome.” And they never disappointed. I
don’t think I’d be a good candidate. I don’t think I have valuable
instincts for those characters.

io9: What was your costume this Halloween?

Green: I’ve prepared a Dr. Henry Jones Sr. costume. I
love Sean Connery in The Last Crusade. I was Axl Rose one year. That
was a very strong costume.

io9: Superficially, you’d appear to have a fascination
with Amish people—what with The Freshman’s Amish character, Liam, as
well as your role in Sex Drive.

Green: I dressed up as an Amish person when I went with
[actor] Todd Grinnell to the Playboy party a few years ago. But I don’t
really have some kind of fascination. It’s just come up a bunch

io9: Can you tell me a little about the upcoming Star Wars episode of Robot Chicken?

Green: Oh my gosh, I cannot wait for people to watch
this. It exceeded all of my expectations. We have a little bit of a
linear story—we kinda discuss the bounty hunters. I’ve always been
interested in those guys and who they are and how they got there. Do
they have agents, or did they answer an ad? Do those guys compete all
the time? Do they hate each other? Are there rivalries? What’s the
story? So, start to finish, it’s the bounty hunters story. And mixed up
throughout are channel flips that are all over the universe and

io9: You’re all over the place lately. What can you tell me about your upcoming spot on Heroes?

Green: Oh, I can’t [laughs].

io9: I know that you and your old buddy Breckin Meyer play comic-book nerds in Atlanta who help one of the Heroes.

Green: You possibly know more than I’m allowed to tell you. Yeah, Breckin and I are both in it. And all our scenes are together.

io9: And shots from the set reveal that you have a beard that sorta makes you look like Morgan from Chuck.

Green: Oh. Wow. That hurts a little bit.

io9: Oh, please. You know the girls love you, Seth.

Green: [laughs]

io9: Would you ever do another Star Trek spoof on Robot Chicken and have Zachary Quinto voice Spock?

Green: Not for Star Trek, no. Zach came on and did a
Sylar bit for us. And he did some other stuff. He is so funny. He has
got to do a comedy, cause he always plays these really scary and
serious characters and he’s so fucking funny. We don’t have any new
Star Trek bits. We want to see the movie first.

io9: The next episode of Entourage is intriguingly titled, “Seth Green Day.” Explain.

Green: [Creator] Doug Ellin asked me if I wanted to
come and do something. And I was like, “Of course I do!” [Laughs] And
me and Kevin Connolly get to fight some more. That’s funny. It’s so

Voici une interview de Seth où il revient sur son rôle dans HIMYM et donc, ses retrouvailles avec Alyson !!!

Christmas comes early for fans of Seth Green this year: On Sunday, Robot Chicken’s ATM Christmas Special premieres (Adult Swim, midnight ET), and on Monday, he reunites with hisBuffy the Vampire Slayer costar Alyson Hannigan on How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8 p.m. ET).

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: This is your first time acting opposite Alyson on-screen sinceBuffy.

SETH GREEN: Since then, yes. But Aly and I have worked together since we were teenagers. I think she was 11 or 12, and I was like 13 when we met. We did a movie called My Stepmother is an Alien [1988], and then she made another TV show called Free Spirit and I did a guest spot on that, and then Buffy. She actually jokes that the only thing in her career that I haven’t been a part of is the American Pie movies. [Laughs]

Perhaps you’ll get your chance.

Well, we’ll see. That reunion seemed to tie it all up.

Had you been looking for a chance to guest on How I Met Your Mother?

I really like that show, and the creators are actually at the same agency, so we’ve had occasion to discuss it. I’m always looking for fun things to act in. They’d actually approached me a couple of times before, and the timing never worked out, but this was perfect, so we took advantage of it.

Your character is a college acquaintance of Lily and Marshall’s known as “Creepy Daryl.” What made them think of you for that role?

[Laughs] I don’t know. I think they just thought it was funny, because the character is a guy who believes that Marshall and Lily are much better friends with him than they are, and while they’ve moved on and had a whole life beyond him, he’s still holding onto the memories of their friendship.

That sounds not unlike passionate Buffy fans, who are very excited for this reunion.

We were really conscious of Buffy fans’ attention on our reunion, so we both posted some pictures on Twitter. I’m so grateful for that experience: It was one of the best characters I’ve ever gotten to play, and an awesome cast to work with. Plus I got to speak all of the Joss Whedon’s, Jane Espenson’s, Drew Goddard’s, David Greenwalt’s awesome words.

Switching gears, you’ve got another Robot Chicken Christmas special this Sunday. What can we expect from that?

It’s so funny. Getting to make a TV show and having as little actual network pressure on you as we do, is one of the more satisfying creative experiences. We wanted to make a Christmas sketch about our Nerd character, kind of a Grinch parody, and we got to exploit all of our deepest, nerdiest things. My partner Matt [Senreich] and I actually flew to New York to shoot a live-action video clip with G.I. Joe comic author Larry Hama. [Laughs] It’s just so silly. If you had told 8-year-old me, when I was sitting there reading these comics, voraciously consuming all G.I. Joe material and playing with those action figures, that one day I would be hanging out in the apartment of one of the creators talking about nerdy stuff, I would not have believed you. That we can, like, trade emails with each other now, that doesn’t seem real.
This is a really funny episode. Henry Winkler’s in it, Skeet Ulrich, Michaela Watkins. Lucas Grabeel sings for us, and he was amazing. Elizabeth Banks plays Mrs. Claus. Seth MacFarlane has played Santa Claus for us since we started the show, and so I keep pressuring him into it. [Laughs] We pose the question, if Jason Bourne is impossible to find, how does he get Christmas presents? Stuff like that, that’s what we think about. [Laughs]

Well, what do you even get Jason Bourne for Christmas?

Oh, you’ll find out. We also ask, how does your Christmas tree feel when you unceremoniously abandon it by the street after loving it deeply for two weeks?

I saw you recently tweeted a photo of someone’s New Kids on the Block ornaments.

Yeah. I was at Alison Haislip’s tree-trimming party. We trimmed the hell out of her tree, P.S. She’s amassed all these ornaments since her childhood, and she had New Kids on the Block baseball card ornaments, and I thought that was worthy of letting people know.

What’s the geekiest ornament you’ve ever seen? I feel like you would have seen some great ones over the years.

My wife, this year actually, bought me a miniature DC Super Friends lunchbox and thermos set ornament, and it’s a miniature replica of the actual lunchbox I had when I was six years old. Yeah, she’s sweet.

Definitely the lady for you.

That’s why I married her.

Segueing from Super Friends to the Avengers, how is Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. (premiering on Disney D in summer 2013) coming along?
I don’t know what’s been released, but I’m really excited. I love Marvel Comics, I love the Hulk. I was thrilled because I thought Joss Whedon’s Hulk [in The Avengers] was the first time we’ve really seen the comic book Hulk on film since the Bill Bixby TV show, so that was awesome. And then some friends of mine from the company asked if I would play A-Bomb, and I was like, “Yes. Yes, I will absolutely play A-Bomb on your Hulk show.” It’s just hard scheduling wise, because I’m doing a lot of different things scheduling-wise, and especially stuff that’s voice-over, you wind up doing four or five episodes at a time. And I’m just exhausted. Everybody else gets to record together, because they have schedules that are predictable. I only got to record once with Clancy Brown [Red Hulk], Adrian Pasdar [Iron Man], and Fred Tatasciore [Hulk], and it was great. It was so fun to actually get to record with everybody, and then every other time since then, it’s just been me, alone in a booth, because my schedule is so sh–ty.

Are you working over the holidays, or will you have time to enjoy them?

A little bit of both. I’m actually in town over the holidays, so me and my wife are gonna hang out in our house, which will be really good. I’ve been away most of the year. We’ve got piles and piles of stuff on our DVR, and my wife is so polite that she won’t watch certain shows without me. [Laughs] Which makes it really hard when you’re away for six weeks. We had a marathon of Walking Dead, and Parenthood, and Dexter, and caught up on Revolution, 30 Rock. What else did we do? We did Black Dynamite. [Laughs] I had the entire season of Black Dynamite. Oh, man. So, we got a lot of TV. And then I just started getting all the seasonal screeners from the different guilds, so that’s the best, because I can actually catch up on seeing features.

Je n'ai pas compris non plus Calie, j'ai cru que tu voulais dire que tu étais fatiguée, quelque chose comme ça.

Sinon, en gros, il dit qu'il aime beaucoup la série et parle un peu de son rôle, qui est celui d'un ami de fac de Lily et Marshall, qui pense être encore très lié à eux mais que ce n'est plus le cas. ^^ Il dit que c'est l'un des meilleurs rôles qu'il ait pu jouer et que le cast est génial.
