The ShowBiz interview with Freddie Prinze Jr. was ubercool! Several clips from the movie were shown, and the interview was very funny. If I had the ability I'd make a realmovie, but unfortunately I'm still shopping for a video encoder type thingy. Here's parts of the transcript from CNN's web site...
MORET: Joining us now is one of those young stars in the family business, Freddie Prinze Jr. His next assignment: taking on an alien race in the futuristic film, "Wing Commander." You return from the 26th century to come back here to talk about it. Tell us about this film. First of all, it was a very big CD-ROM, big video game. It did, I'm told, more than $100 million as a CD-ROM, which would be a hit film in any language.
FREDDIE PRINZE JR., ACTOR: Yeah, that would be nice.
MORET: And now, you're in the new genesis of this.
PRINZE: Yeah, I'm in the part one, and it's like World War II, like 700 years in the future. It really is. It's very -- The director of the movie also made the game, the guy who directed the film, he create the game and he like knows everything about -- He's this huge World War II buff, so he made it -- It's very, like, symbolic. It's cool.
MORET: Now, obviously, this film will appeal to folks who like "Stars Wars." We're also being told that there's a possibility that the new "Star Wars" trailer may be in front of your film. Have you heard the same thing?
PRINZE: I have heard the same rumor, and...
MORET: Which would be good news for you.
PRINZE: It would be great news. It would be very good. It would be lovely things. Hopefully if Fox believes in the movie, then they'll do that.
MORET: Well, they clearly believe in the movie because of you in some part because you've got a hit now with "She's All That."
PRINZE: Yeah, "She's All That."
MORET: Well, you did your own stunts for "Wing Commander," didn't you?
MORET: And you enjoy doing that?
PRINZE: Yeah, it's fun, man. It's like I'm all hooked up to wires like flying in the air. It's cool. It's (UNINTELLIGIBLE) fun.
MORET: You know why you feel this way? You're 22, you feel you're invincible. It will change. I hope your success doesn't change.
PRINZE: Thank you very, very much.
