I am from East Flatbush, Brooklyn, New York. It’s hot playing a Texan, very hot. The dialect, the specific type of twang in their speech, is very specific and cultural. The swagger, the clothes, the cowboy hats, cowboy boots, jeans and T-shirt — it’s all American, and it’s really fun to play.
On working with his co-star James Purefoy:
James is a very dear friend of mine; I love him to death. We first got a chance to work together on a project that we filmed in South Africa. We trolled around Capetown and had a lot of fun. I always felt it was unfinished business between him and me, so I was really happy that we were able to reunite for this.
