A ON MY SHIPS? It all depends on the person in charge, the steward or the cook. The food in the boxes [doesn’t] change; the food on the table does.


Q Are the containers normally put on the ship for transport as colorful as they were in the movie or were they dressed up for the shoot?

A They might have taken some of the rust spots out of them. That’s the way the containers are, different companies. They’re all different colors. If you drive out on your highway, look at the trucks. Most of them probably came from a ship. They’re intermodal, going from train to truck to ship.


Interviews are edited. C.J. can be contacted at and seen on Fox 9’s “Buzz.”
