Q Lizz Winstead has a terrible sense of direction coupled with a belief that she is never wrong. And your experience?

A I disagree. She has no compass, she can’t figure out [anything] directional. She is always late, and most of the time Lizz is wrong. As soon as they can install a directional chip in a human being, Lizz would be the best person to receive that.


Q How was that first meeting with the Winsteads of Minnesota?

A Like going home to my own parents but dialing up the frankness, the candor, 100,000 times. The very first thing Lizz’s dad [um, Windy] said to me was, If you get gassy we’ve got the Beano here for you, with all sincerity, and Ginny said, Oh yeah, we have a coupon. Do you like Beano? Sharing the characteristics of my own irritable bowel or the eccentricities of my colon wasn’t No. 1 on the list [of conversation starters]. It was probably No. 10.


Q I’ll think to myself, “OK, Brian’s arrived,” when I hear that you’ve done what in Hollywood?

A You would probably read about me in Scientology magazine. That’s when I will really have made it. Other than that, I’m an average guy out there.


Interviews are edited. Contact C.J. at and see her on Fox 9’s “Buzz.”
