Entrevista a Dominic Purcell

Ultimamente parecía que no había más que noticias de Wentworth Miller... Para no ser menos Dominic Purcell ha tomado su relevo y en esta semana no ha parado de conceder entrevistas para promocionar la serie y uno de sus últimos trabajos en la película Primeval.

Desde la web de Devoted to Prison Break han conseguido que Dominic les conceda la siguiente entrevista:

IESB: You’ve been rumored to be involved in the next Hulk film, has there been any movement on that, will we see you playing Bruce Banner?

DP: Well, that was rumor, the Hulk was never, Marvel never approached me or my agent that was rumor, but I am about to do a movie with Joel Schumacher in Romania for three months. I’m playing a Gulf War veteran who gets captured by an occult family who has some kind of link to the Nazi regime.

IESB: And what’s that called?

DP: Town Creek. It’s an interesting story and I’m excited to be working with Joel Schumacher. It’s a good step up for me.

IESB: So what’s more challenging for you as an actor, TV or film?

DP: There’s isn’t a difference really, it depends on the role. I don’t really have a preference, TV or film, just as long as TV is good and challenging and refreshing and unique and that’s one of the reasons I took Prison Break. I was involved with the story and I loved the fact where it was coming from, it wasn’t your standard procedural drama. I saw an opportunity to be challenged as an actor and those are the kind of things I look for. Obviously, in the film world I’m on a list now but I’m not obviously getting the roles that go to the higher echelon of actors but at present I am applying my trade and hopefully I can get to a point where I can, kind of, choose projects I really, really want to be involved in.

IESB: So what can we expect to see in the second half of the season on Prison Break?

DP: The conclusion of season 2 obviously, the story will wrap up. I’m not at liberty to tell you exactly what happens but I do know that the pitch for season 3 has been embraced by Fox and I know the concept of season 3 and it’s very exciting, it’s going to blow a lot of people away. That’s the good thing about Prison Break, each season get to be a different story. Season 1 was prison, season 2 we’re on the run, season 3 is…can’t tell you.

IESB: Oh! I was gonna say come on! Okay one last thing, and I have to ask this because I was a huge fan of John Doe and it ended without any real closure for the fans and it’s bothered me forever, where exactly did John Doe come from and why did he know everything?

DP: Well, John Doe was Christ returned. That’s why he knew everything, you know, I feel kind of sorry for John Doe in that he never really got a chance to conclude his journey. It’s a strange thing that happened there, the show itself was actually rated pretty well. It’s funny, Fox would do anything now to have John Doe on Friday nights at 9 o’clock. We were pulling in 8s and 9s on Friday night, you know, those are good numbers. Maybe they could make a movie of it one day, who knows.

IESB: That’s a good idea, I hope they do! Thanks so much for your time Dominic.

DP: Thank you.

Purcell is certainly climbing the ladder. Prison Break has become a huge television hit on Fox with a large fanbase behind it. Too bad he wasn't approached to do the next Hulk film, he would have been great as Dr. Bruce Banner. Purcell has an almost humble but commanding presence about him. Ah well, we look forward to the future of Prison Break, his next film Town Creek directed by Joel Schumacher and who knows, all you John Doe fans out there keep your fingers crossed, maybe just maybe, he'll step into those shoes once more time.

Prison Break returns to Fox on January 22nd 2007!
