JO: Was that the most challenging?

SU: Yeah, vocally it was. That was probably the toughest part of it. Everybody has their own cadence and rhythm and way of saying things and I keyed into a few things and as we had more drinks I got more info. Yeah, that was the toughest part of it.

JO: What was the most fun thing you done during this project?

SU: Oh, man. There were a lot of good times. The humorous scenes are kind of a blast. Trying to get around on crutches was oddly fun. But I think that winner’s circle, the scene we did for that was very touching. It was near the end of filming for all of us and it was a nice way to wrap it up.

JO: You said earlier that you didn’t know much about horse racing going into this project. How much more do you know now?

SU: Probably not much!

JO: Have you become a fan?

SU: Yeah, absolutely. I’ve seen a lot of things that Chip walked me through that were unique and new and that were uniquely him. I learned a lot. I don’t know that I’ve learned anything about handicapping these races or betting and it’s not really my inclination anyway. I learned how to tell as they run if someone’s coming or if they’re going, but it’s too late by then to bet, so it didn’t really matter.

JO: Have you been to the Kentucky Derby before?

SU: I have not. I hope to get to come this year.

JO: What are you looking forward to when attending your first Kentucky Derby?

SU: Just the grandeur of it--the mass amount of people, the singular focus. Just watching the horses run amidst all of the screaming masses.

JO: Will you go over to the Infield?

SU: I would like to. Most racetracks in my world, in auto racing, have a tunnel you can get there during the race, but I don’t think that’s going to happen here. If you see a guy sprinting across the track, that’s me!
