The Post acknowledges my interviewing chops

After Tom posted about the Scott ‘Count’ Bakula chat that was going to happen on the Post (since we know they’re not the same entity, no-sir-e, unless it’s good for us, in which case they are) I went and added my own question. I finally got around to going back and reading the whole thing and was happy to see they used my overly-compound query.

Sterling, Va.: The promo for this chat lists Quantum Leap, a show you did 10 years ago, before Enterprise or the Oscar winning American Beauty. How do you feel about how strongly you’re associated with that show? Do you think it’s helped or hurt you in making your career go where you wanted it to? If it’s a positive thing for you, what’s your fondest memory about working on that show?

Scott Bakula: It’s definitely a positive element to my career. It put me on the map in a very good light in terms of critics, in terms of fans and in terms of how I am perceived within the industry so I am grateful that I had that experience and it remains a positive.

My fondest memory and it would be hard for me to pick one but I really enjoyed moving from episode to episode and the many, many challenges that were presented to me as an actor from roping cattle to flying on the trapeze to heavyweight boxing to playing a pregnant woman. The show allowed me to think outside the box in terms of my acting and helped me expand in all areas of my life.

It’s a good interview and certainly does nothing to refute his rep as a just unbelievably nice guy. Someday we’re going to hear that he has been burying nuns in his backyard since 1974. Go check it out.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
