Interviews

Since you, as I did, grew up with the Terminator films, did that have you particularly psyched to do this series?

Dude, I keep reminding people that I had T2 on laser disc. — TVGuide [4]

How cool was it to join the Terminator franchise and to get to play a character so connected to the mythology?

You know, I didn't even know the character completely that I was going in for. I went in and got the sides [script pages] for the show on a Wednesday night. I went in Thursday morning [to audition] and I started working on set Friday morning, so I hadn't really read anything. I'd read sides with all the character names changed, so I had no idea, really, what was going on. It wasn't until Thursday night that I got the script. But I called all my friends who are Terminator fans like I was, and I was like, "Dude, you will never f**king believe this! I went in this morning for a show…" "What show?" "It's called Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles." And my buddy was like, "What?! Dude, they're making a show about it?" I was like, "Yeah, it's awesome." He asked, "Who are you playing?" "Dude… I'm playing Derek Reese." He goes, "What?! F**king bulls**t! You just walked in and in one day you're playing Derek Reese?" I told him, "Yeah… I can't believe it."
It's awesome. It's really awesome. For anybody that's a fan of the films, I get to be the guy that comes in every episode and is like "Yeah, where are the f**king guns? Who do we have to kill?" I get to be as close to a Terminator without actually being one as anybody. I've lost my brother. I've lost everything I've known and loved in the future, and I get a chance to come back and change it. It's like who wouldn't do absolutely everything you have to do to accomplish that? So he's pretty bad ass! — IGN TV [5]

On Tom Green's internet-based talk show, he was asked: Do you have to cover up the tattoos with flesh colored makeup?

No, I have to cover up this one [refers to tattoo on his left arm], this is my son's name, and they don't want obviously any names. But no, all the rest I keep, and actually they add one more tattoo. — Tom Green's House Tonight [6]
