One Q&A and one video interview and there's a lot he can't say
VICTORIA, BC and LOS ANGELES, CA. It's a double-dose of interviews with Michael Peña about his new FOX drama "Gracepoint."
Back in May, I sat down with Peña on the Vancouver Island set of the "Broadchurch" remake.
At the time, the versatile actor, whose credits range from "End of Watch" to "Eastbound & Down" to the upcoming "Fury," didn't know the answer to the big mystery of "Gracepoint," specifically who killed his character's young son.
By the time we talked on video in Los Angeles in August, Peña was a little bit more guarded about the show's mysteries, though he was much more willing to discuss his potential upcoming movie version of "CHiPs," which may or may not happen.
But it's nice to have both interviews available. In the print interview from the set, Peña discusses what attracted him to this particular television and his personal approach to the character, as a father himself. He also talks about how he imprinted parts of himself on Mark Solano.
And above, he talks about the things he can't say about the different tones of his various projects and a couple upcoming movie roles.
Check out the video above and the Q&A below.
"Gracepoint" airs its third episode on Thursday (October 16) night at 9 p.m. on FOX.
