Exclusive Interview with Justin Long
Posted 02.05.09 by reelz
The iconic popularity of those incessant "I'm a Mac, and I'm a PC" television ads have been part blessing, part curse for actor Justin Long. While they have certainly offered an entirely new level of exposure, they've also tended to overshadow Long's scene-stealing work in movies like Live Free or Die Hard and Zack and Miri Make a Porno. You also have to wonder how many times he gets approached by Mac nerds asking him to explain what the heck that spinning color wheel means?
Long's latest role in He's Just Not That Into You may well be the most demanding part of his career. Instead of playing the comic relief, his character Alex is pretty far removed from the roles of Long's past.
We sat down for an exclusive interview with Justin Long at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles to discuss his transition from jokester to romantic leading man.
