Hey, Im looking to go to the projects Ned, you said some interesting stuff on the panel I think my favorite being that when you got you your agent cant be with a article game Youre like no, I dont wanna do a article game whats changed? I saw the material Its a brilliant script these guys are these guys are unbelievable who who write this stuff. I mean, theyre so prolific Theyre so funny and theyre so pointed, you know, and you just read the material Its and you go.

Im in you know, really serious. Thats all the change You know, I I you know, that was just, you know actor the actor in you, you know, its not a real thing Guess what? This is a real deal man.

This is real acting. Its real fun and I I cant I I just had such a great time with these guys, you know, I mean Im so glad that I said yes because First of all, Id have been really stupid to say no because I wasnt working youd be home right now kicking yourself pretty hard I wouldnt be at home Id be Id be out on the street somewhere cuz my wife would have kicked me to the curb if Id have said no But ya know it was great man. I would have never met these guys never had so much fun.

This is my boy right here GG I love it. Its so much fun that was my I talk about this on the panel a bit the fact that the game works I think because you guys are so close and you can See the chemistry between you on the screen, but then on the stage, thats still there. You guys worked for three years together It was there any moment where you wanted to kill everyone solo? We just wanted to be done with plenty of time for that man.

I wanted to strangle this dude because he just Hippie launches and he Had healthy options we had healthy options at lunch we meet a mic assistant Nah, Im doing great! Im still hosting We had options and one of them was a health option and the healthy option generally contained You know some lentils, and I didnt know healthy food mak e you stink that bad Health smells its like love hurts, health smell – definetely wasnt your case, man. Theres no question. Hes a methane actor Were talking about my farting right now really that goes over well in IGN Get back control, its your show.

Im totally in control. Were right where I want to be Lets talk about lets talk about acting lets talk about acting then And Ned, how did you get into the character of Michael and every else prepare a similar answer? You know, I just I just got into my imagination You know, Im not a guy who goes around stealing cars or you know running over pedestrians or shooting people thats you know solos deal, but I just you know, Youre an actor. Its all about imagination.

And that was the thing that was really cool about this. Is it gave me an opportunity to Reawaken my imagination, you know as an actor and and getting into it you do the normal things I did I did a picture exercise like what is this? I gonna look like you know I found a picture of somebody and I made it and I just kind of got into it that way I did, you know, I did a lot of stuff. I went back to Beverly Hills Playhouse, man Its just its just kind of you know Got back in all my old seat study stuff You know and and and dug around and crawled around and found the guy what was fascinating for me for all of you is the fact that especially for you and Michael you talked about the fact that you know Youd basically walked away from acting and this was you coming back similar to Michael coming back to being a bad guy.

Yeah Yeah, it wasnt in that actually helped me, you know get into the character because I know what its like to step out of what you really love and you know, I mean, its Its hard, you know, but its a hard life too. So if youre gonna you know, This is not an easy job, you know an easy way to make a living so you you got responsibilities Youre you know, youre family and all that kind of stuff. You got to make money for him and You know the same thing with Michael. Michael Thought the best move was to get out of the game and youd be happy youd be able to be a family man You know, I was probably a worse dad out of the business and I was in the business So, you know because I I didnt like what I was doing.

I wanted to be an actor. Thats what I do So theres a lot of that net. Thats so weird to hear You say things you can see Michael saying in the game about yourself know How you get the parts?

I think is it Howard for you. So, I mean you basically were Franklin youre saying on the panel Yeah but it was it was a little harder for me to start with the were Memorizing the scripts because I dont I dont go to castings a lot I dont do that like as a regular job, you know like acting so, you know, I brought raw talent to it So what happened was I started getting? advice from a few of the other actors these two guys and a couple more and they started like saying well you wrote raps before So I used to write a lot of raps for a lot of artists and myself, you know Im saying and Im I just start taking the scripts that I was getting and they know it I write the whole thing That I have to say all my script to the side of it and they were wondering why was I doing this? So when I was translating it from my hand To the page. I can remember it then instead of just trying to read it I couldnt do it at all. Stephen used to say well I put loud music I like to listen to loud traffic and people ride up and down the streets and he can memorize through hearing other stuff.

I I could not do that. I tried everybody method and it didnt work I used to be in the middle of the scene and theyd be doing a lines and and the director would be like waiting on Me to just say okay. Hold on and Ill just go And theyre like -Cut!

So, but I got it and Im Im here and did a good job, dont you think so? Huge progress! Huge from day one. Yeah, I told you Im still on the job Yeah from day one too after the three years amazing, I mean obviously Ned and I have experience with lines memorizing the Theatre. Yes, but for solo thats a huge thing and and were also given a lot of times we are given 50 60 75 pages on a Thursday night or Friday now, we know were working the following week We dont know when and we dont know what of the 75 pages were doing.

Very stressful I mean, I usually have a 24 hour period where Im a wreck because I need to really work hard. Im not a natural memorizer Ive had friends on soaps that would have Overnight boom they could memorize it pick it up in the morning memorize it no Im going over it and over it and over especially Trevor with some of his you know tirades two pages long of crazy and I would like to stick to those words written right like thats my job and thats how you know to Sort of segue into the question Greg way we call them way We call him Greg ways Greg way the greg way. So you take your name? Yeah, Greg. Yeah, and then Come on mark.
