How about Lou Ferrigno. Are we laughing at him? Or with him?
With him! Definitely. One of the things I loved about reading this script and working on the movie is just how not mean-spirited it is. With Lou Ferrigno there was also that element of excitement that I think we had with Rush. Jon [Favreau, who is also in the movie] and I, when we were kids, we all loved the Incredible Hulk.
You play such a sweet, unironic guy here. Isn't there really a scoffing cynic underneath?
In this movie I was excited to play this kind of character who I believe is an optimist and emotionally available, as opposed to the one I did before this, which was Role Models, where my character was a bit more of a misanthrope. There are many things in Role Models that annoy me in my own life, and so you just kind of put them in a movie. But I think ultimately I'm optimistic. I'm a glass-is-half-full-type person.
Will the economy rebound?
It will, eventually.
