Greg Grunberg, Interview
I know it’s little bit strange title for Greg Grunberg Interview, but you’ll understand when you read it. The A.V. Club made a great interview with Greg, they mostly talked about Greg not Matt Parkman..
… I started a frozen-yogurt delivery business called Yogurt Runners, and I would send fellow actors out in the afternoons, to all the agencies and studios around town, and the hair salons, and we would sell nonfat frozen yogurt that was prepackaged. And that way, I could go on auditions during the day and sell frozen yogurt in the afternoon, and still make a living…
The A.V. Club: When we decided to put together a sidekick-themed issue, you immediately came to mind as a good person to talk to, even though you’ve graduated from those roles lately.
Greg Grunberg: You know, as much as I’ve graduated, I love sidekicks. For me, it’s the greatest position to be in, because, first of all, you always need a sidekick. It’s always that familiar face that you can count on. I’ve been J.J.’s sidekick go-to guy, and for me, as far as work’s concerned, if you’re a sidekick, you’ll work forever. I love it, I always love it. What’s funny is on Felicity and Alias as well, even going back to Seinfeld, on all those shows, sidekicks are the ones you remember. They always have the zinger, they’re always the support system, or they get all the information. They’re the shoulder to cry on. So they’re always good characters to play.
