Interview

Synopsis: Everyone wants a piece of a celebrity. Pierre is a political reporter, assigned to write a fluff piece on Katya, a blond who acts in slasher movies and a Fox show about single girls in the city. The interview, at a restaurant, goes badly: she's late, he's unprepared and rude. After leaving, he bangs his head in a fender bender and she takes him to her loft to clean the wound. Lubricated by alcohol and competitive natures, the interview resumes. She takes phone calls from her fiancé, Pierre reads her diary on her computer. They discuss wounds, he expresses concern, father-daughter feelings arise. Out come camcorders to tape their darkest secrets. Is friendship or more in the offing?

I'm not just saying this

'cause you're my brother.

Or even DC.

I'm telling you Robert.

These cowboys are going down.

But do I get to cover Washington?

No.

I have the unique privilege...

...of interviewing Katya.

Do you know who she is?

I mean she's more famous for

who she sleeps with than anything else.

And for her fluctuating tit size.

She's a real maverick, this one.

She's had them reduced.

Too bad for me, huh?

Now I've got nothing

to look forward to.

Hey, I'd offer you one. But it would be

like spitting in the ocean, right?

Robert.

I know you like big tits.

Remember that night?

Remember the night I danced with Tiria,

when I first introduced you to Brenda?

I brought her over and you looked

right at her chest and you said:

'It's nice to meet you both.'

She liked you. You know.

Well, I don't want to keep

her majesty waiting.

You're gonna be okay.

Come on. You know that.

All right?

It's not fair, is it?

I know.

That's not fair.

I know.

Don't be afraid.

God, I hate my character.

Should we run at it again?

No. I think I'm supposed

to be somewhere.

'Do you realize

everybody loves you now?'

Shit. I'm late.

Come on, Larry.

There's gonna be more indictments.

This is just the crack on the dam.

Kidding me?

You know if I get on a train within the hour,

I could be in Washington by midnight.

Well.

I mean she's not even here.

Sir!

Hold on.

Maybe she called.

I'm sorry sir but we do have

a policy about cell phones.

Okay. I'm sorry.

Still there?

Yeah. Look, I'm ready to split.

I can leave right now.

No. We definitely said seven.

Well, maybe she doesn't

know how to tell time.

Why am I so hostile?

I've been waiting

almost an hour already.

I'm sorry.

How are you?

Newsworld?

I'm from Newsworld.

Oh I'm sorry.

I realize you're a person.

I try to be.

Pierre Peders.

I'm sorry. Peter Peders?

Pierre Peders.

Ah, I see. I see.

Enchant.

Hey, I was just wondering...

I'm sorry. One second.

Yeah. No, I just got here.

Yeah.

Okay. I'm gonna

have to call you back.

Before I forget.

What time is that thing on Sunday?

All right. I'll talk to you later.

Okay. Bye.

I was just wondering if there was any

way we could have my usual table.

I'm so sorry. It must have

been a mix-up. It's already taken.

I just...I feel a little exposed here.

Let me see what I can do.

Thank you so much, Donald.

Thank you.

I'm sorry I'm a little late.

No, don't be silly.

Traffic?

Ha? No.

No. My loft is just a couple

of blocks away.

Thank you very much.

I really appreciate it.

Please. We're crazy about you.

Glad to see you in one piece.

I heal rather nicely, don't I?

Oh, my God. That last one...

So intense.

He dragged me twice. Sadist.

Jerrie's right. You loved it.

And you're in the new one, right?

As a ghost?

I can't say.

You're just gonna have to go see it.

Come on.

- I can't.

We'll go see it.

Have a nice dinner.

Take care.

Thank you so much, Dennis.

Donald.

Donald!

Donald, sorry.

Well.

They certainly loved

your slasher movie.

The horror film? Yeah. They seem to.

Were you...?

Were you in the first one?

In the original?

No.

I wasn't born.

That was a long time ago.

But you came into it in...When?

Isn't it 'Body'?

It's 'Body', it's 'Killer'...

Killer Body - Part 4.

And you play a ghost?

Or something?

No.

No. Not exactly.

Did they not send you a screener?

Normally you get sent screeners before.

Yeah. I know it's...

It's in my bag.

Hello.

Hi.

What can I get you to drink?

I think I will have a

raspberry Martini, please.

Thanks.

Miss!

I'm sorry.

Another Scotch?
