Bouncing around between such different projects — film, TV, franchises — have you managed to create a sense of family like you seem to have with the Twilight cast?
With the Twilight gig, I don’t know — it’s a strange thing, there’s nothing I can really liken it to. It’s comfortable. It’s nice to see familiar faces and go back and hang with whatever you want to call it — that family — again. It’s nice.
Between Drive Angry 3D and Breaking Dawn, you’ve been spending a lot of time in Louisiana.
A lot of stuff has been shooting there. I’ve gotten to know Shreveport very well.
Red Riding Hood is another one of your projects that has links to Twilight — it reunites you with Catherine Hardwicke. How did you come to work with her again?
I can’t speak for her, but she did call me personally and sort of pitch me the idea, and I was immediately down for it. I’ve always had a special affinity for Catherine and the chance to do another completely different project with her was totally cool. I play a lowly woodcutter. [Laughs] It’s set in a Red Riding Hood-type village, you see. I also happen to be Red Riding Hood’s dad.
Ah. You and dads!
I know, because I’m the dad to all the ingénues in Hollywood now. It’s nuts!
