ML interview with Alex - IGN, Aug. 30, 2007

Some lovely insights into Mick (not exactly sanctimonious, but...), the impact of changing showrunners and also some tantalising hints about what might have been if Alex hadn't got Moonlight and had stayed with The Shield. If only we could have had both:

Wow! Bless you for sharing that treasure, Red. :hug: It amazes me that these buried gems are still coming to light! :hearts:

I love the hints about what might have happened with Hiatt's character if The Shield had continued his story. And it's kind of cute that Alex interpreted the term "tool" the way he did - I'm not sure that's how the interviewer meant it, but it opened up a whole fascinating bit of analysis of his role that might not have otherwise happened. Lovely serendipity. :happysigh:

Thank you so much, redwinter, for unearthing this gem! :heart:

So, could someone educate this second-language-speaker in what a "tool" is and how Alex misinterpreted it? :shrug:

:giggle:

Oh that made me laugh. We finally found a word Alex doesn't like.

It's a very mild insult in English slang, francis - it means idiot, usually someone with a bit of arrogance. The last person I described as a tool (on Twitter) was Donald Trump, if that helps with the explanation. :biggrin:

I think Alex knew just what tool means... he just didn't want Hiatt called that.
He chose to go with another direction... :snicker:

And how awesome is this!??! :yahoo:
I loved the insights into The Shield! We never see him discuss this role!
And it was, in a way, his career maker, no?

Muchas gracias, Rioja! :heart:
(Kevin worked on the Mexican border... :biggrin: )

Grateful to Alex for Mick, Andy, and McG. :)

Ah, thank you red! (You see, we need you on this board!)
So Alex was defending his character from some mild abuse. I love that he's so protective of poor lil Kevin. :giggle:
