Great pretty swinging? What are you excited to do tonight... the event tonight? I hear they're giving away a free dinner audience so I'm an actor. When they're giving away free food, I show up. I get to present an award to Stephen Daldry, who was our boss on Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, so it's not like working. What was it like getting to work with Sandra, your best friend? Well, you know, I was only in the movie for about three days with Sandy, so I think she was just kind of folding laundry in the background of the shots that I was in. I actually had to see the movie again to find out if we were actually in the movie at the same time. And what are your goals for 2012? My goals for 2012? It's peace, love and understanding. Good luck with that.
