Every character has cried. Hopefully, when you watch the show, you feel better at the end of the episode than when you started.
I hope it will be the tip of the spear for a seismic shift in what people are doing with network comedies. As new people come, they had to see what it would be.
- About a Boy
How much fun was it to get to sing on the show? I was so relieved when I finally saw it. I was terrified doing that, but it was a nice relief that I could, at least, carry a tune. Do you enjoy getting to have so many great guest actors to play off of, like Leslie Bibb and Adrianne Palicki? Oh, yeah, I think they timed it perfectly. No, my irresponsible phase is so fresh in my memory that I truly have zero problem relating.
A lot of improv gets in. As the series goes on, you start to know your character as good as anyone.

With a show like this, people immediately begin to wonder whether the two leads with get together. Where do you fall on that, especially when the idea of it tends to be better than the actual reality of it?
I think it would ruin the show. It would just be this family that would be Will and Fiona, as parents of this boy.
About a Boy: mother-son relationship by Kim Bechstein on Prezi
It would be a modern family, in a way. You would accept that he loves this kid as much as a dad does. I do know, however, that in the season finale, and as we get closer to the season finale, there are some touching moments between us where we start to realize our shared love of this kid, that are really touching. Yes, but I think it really helps. Having a son, though, just gives it another dimension. She really loves her son.
And out of that comes all of this humor. They cast it well. Our dynamic is really sweet and funny. Did you go back and watch the film or read the book, at all?
She was just perfect and brilliant, in that. The character of Fiona is not nearly as dark in our show.
He sets up worlds. This show is definitely not just a comedy. You just create a niche for yourself. Jason is good at that. Do you enjoy doing a half-hour show, or do you feel like you never learn enough about the characters?
I go to the set and everything looks the same. People are doing the same jobs. You move at a faster place, which I really enjoy. I like the discipline of it.
I love David Walton.
What can you say about how the relationship between Fiona, Marcus and Will will evolve? They can never get away from each other because they live next door to each other.
