Nick Zano Interview Part II -- Exclusive

Yesterday, posted the first of its exclusive interview with The Final Destination star Nick Zano. Here’s part II of the 31-year-old former What I Like About You actor had to say:

JJ: Which movies or television shows are you into?

NZ: I’m a big comedy and action guy. I just recently saw Funny People and enjoyed the meshing of comedy and drama in a really really fantastically interwoven way that [director Judd] Apatow did.

JJ: Favorite action flick?

NZ: Definitely Tango & Cash, you cannot deny Kurt Russell.

JJ: Which TV shows do you follow?

NZ: Not too much. Outside of The Sopranos and Curbed Your Enthusiasm, not too much else. I’m curious to say how they play the Seinfeld reunion and pull it off or f— it up. Eastbound & Down (on HBO) also makes me excited.

JJ: What music do you follow?

NZ: I Pandora myself out! The day my iPod died is the day I found Pandora.

JJ: What’s the best concert you’ve been to?

NZ: Probably Tenacious D “Fundraiser” was one of the best. It was Tenacious D, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Eddie Veder, Chris Roth, Will Farrell and Beck.
They did a benefit. Eddie Veder was sitting in a folding chair taking requests. He played all the songs that were yelled out acoustic.

JJ: Craziest piece of gossip you’ve read on a blog that you’d want to correct?

NZ: I’ve actually haven’t been bombarded with too many things that are outrageous. Not to say that we won’t have this conversation later. The blogging hemisphere if very dangerous. We’ve created this crazy curtain, and have become semi hostile. I hope we eventually pull out of that. Everyone just got hostile really fast. Now you ask yourself if you want to really get into show business. It’s a weird time right now, and I think people feel the effects of all the bad that’s around.

JJ: How was Channing Tatum‘s wedding? What did you get for the couple?

NZ: It was a beautiful event for two people very much in love. I still haven’t gotten them anything. But apparently you have one year to get them anything. [My gift is] very driven toward Channing, not Jenna.

JJ: How did you meet Channing and Jenna?

NZ: I met him a long time ago before he moved to LA. He was a roommate of a mutual friend. We all became friends via phone and we all ended up in LA.

JJ: Whose career would you want to emulate?

NZ: I would definitely take Kurt Russell’s.

JJ: After promoting The Final Destination, where do you go from here professionally?

NZ: Nothing is concrete, it’s show business. We could go outside, shake hands and have a three picture deal and have it not mean anything.

JJ: Do you prefer to be in front of the camera, or behind the camera?

NZ: I like being in front and behind. In high school, I directed and starred in most of our stuff. But we had one guy who was the class clown who would do just about anything. He’d tell people to throw me in a dumpster and we would would all agree. So we always had that guy who would take the fall for the joke. So that’s where I started getting creative behind the camera. After high school, I couldn’t find the right college to fit what I was trying to do, which was just act, write and direct. So I took the plunge and went to New York for a few days and then went to LA and stayed with a friend.

    What’s going on with the gene pool in Amercia first Channing Tatum (no. 1), then Nick Zano too.

    Seriously, I cannot take anymore excitement is just not fair.

    Don’t really know who he is but I am interested now. They even look slightly alike and friends too.
