Ask Brett: Set 04

27 March 2010 No Comment

Question: Hi Brett. Being a sports fan, I really enjoyed watching “The Replacements.” I was wondering, since the movie was based on the 1987 NFL strike, if the producers bothered getting permission from the NFL to use the Redskins name instead of the Sentinels. What was it like working with actors such as Keanu Reeves and Gene Hackman? Do you now them pretty well off the set as well? I was wondering what got you into surfing at such a young age. Is it something you went out and tried in the ocean and got a quick grasp of it and enjoyed it? I wish you the very best of luck in your future endeavors! Sincerely, Matt Maida

Brett: Hi Matt, The producers weren’t allowed to use any NFL names or associations with the NFL because they didn’t like the idea of “The Replacement” players as heroes, I suppose. Don’t quote me on that! I really enjoyed working with Keanu and think he’s one of the nicest guys. He was very friendly and we did spend some time together outside of work. Gene Hackman was just amazing to work with and to be around. We had dinner once or twice and I can’t tell you what a great feeling it was to have had the chance the hang out with one of the great actors of this generation. I picked up surfing when I was 8 years old because my older brother surfed and I , of course, wanted to be just like him. I grew to love it and have surfed ever since. Thanks for writing and take care.

Question: Hi Mr. Cullen, I’m Tyler. I saw you in Walker, Texas Ranger as Pete Drayton. You were great. How did you like the scene between you and the other guy on the top of the building before the Rangers come? Did you like starring in the show?

Brett: Hi Tyler, Yes it was fun playing that scene on top of the roof of that building but I certainly didn’t like getting hit as many times as I was! LOL…Thanks for writing! All the Best!

Question: Hi Brett – Glad to see you’ll be on Family Law – the season premiere to boot…are you any further along on the Yellow Rose movie that was in the works? I’ll catch Family Law in the mean time. Christy Moheiser

Brett: Hi Christy, I’m sorry to say that we are not any further along but we are still trying! All the Best! PS: Enjoy Family Law but you better have a hanky available! LOL

Question: Dear Brett, What does an actor who is kind of successful do between jobs? I mean, if you get to be on a successful show and then it’s canceled, maybe you get a bit part here and there, or maybe do a movie but just aren’t quite a commodity yet, what do you do in the mean time? Hell, you gotta eat! I’m thinking that since you’re around a lot of actors, and because you seem like a knowledgeable kind of guy, that you might be able to give me some insight into this. By the way, I love your web site! Thanks for taking the time to share your life with us fans and for keeping us updated on your projects. That’s really sweet of you! Adria

Brett: Hi Adria, Interesting question! I go to the gym and I play with my daughter. I also write quite a bit and try to travel as much as I can. Life’s a cabaret my friend; enjoy it as much as you can! The beach, reading, writing, exercise and friends and family! These things I love…especially my family! All the best!

Question: Brett, what’s the rule about wishing an actor “good luck?” You’re not supposed to say that, right? Are we supposed to tell you to “break a leg” instead? Are you superstitious about that sort of thing? Can’t wait to see you on “Family Law!” Break a leg…or whatever Kendall PS. You are very handsome.

Brett: Kendall, “Break a leg” is the appropriate thing to say to an actor. Although it started in the theater, it still holds its weight in film and television. Thanks for your kind words, also! All the best!

Question: Hi Brett! Inquiring minds want to know…what is your favorite color? Jaden

Brett: BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Question: Brett, what are the chances you will be in a Western again? I love you with stubble and a hat! Please make your next Yellow Rose movie a Western so I can see you as a cowboy again! Brandi

Brett: Hi Brandi! From your lips to God’s ears! I’d love to do another Western but we will just have to wait and see! Thanks for writing!

Question: Hey Brett: I just read that “The Seagull” was playing in New York. I know you were in that play in college, according to your site. Did you get a chance to see it? Do you get to go to the theater much? Jamie

Brett: Hi Jamie, No, I didn’t get a chance to see the production of “The Seagull” but I would have loved to! Yes, I played Treplev in “The Seagull” in my senior year at the University of Houston! Thanks for writing!

Question: Hello Brett! How are things going with you? I’m a Portuguese movie fan and enjoyed very much to see your performing in some movies. I want to make you this question: Why you Texan actors are simultaneously very interesting and very complex regarding your performance. I really find Texan men one of the most interesting men in the entire world…but at the same time…very hard to deal. Good luck in your career. Ana LuĂ­sa

Brett: Hi Ana Luisa, Thank you for your kind words! I don’t really have an answer to why us Texans are so complicated. But we do try to be as interesting as possible! Thanks for writing!
