Here is an interview with Virginia about the movie, Number 23.
I'm not sure I agree with her comment "Jim was never really a standup comic, really. Jim's always's been an actor,"
I think Jim is a stand-up comic at heart, who is trying all kinds of different things to make it more interesting for himself. Comedy is his passion -- the man is a comedic genious. Is there anyone out there who can do the things that he does in the comedy field??
I honestly think acting is just an avenue for him that he's exploring so he can find fulfillment. I'm not sure if it's working or not, but he's certainly trying different roles to test it all out.
I'm looking forward to this one. Although, I get scared easily. I hope it's not one of those films that has the scary music that precedes all the suspenseful scenes. That's when I hide behind the popcorn.
