We’ve loved dreamy actor Lee Pace for EONS! Obviously for his adorable and prematurely canceled cult television series PUSHING DAISIES but also for his moody and debonair role in Tarsem Singh’s film THE FALL (another cult favorite!)
He was also in those awful Hobbit movies, but we’ll pretend that didnt’ happen.
You can check out Lee in this recent interview for BuzzFeed News where he talks about all sorts of stuff including his coming out and hopeful wishes for a Pushing Daisies reunion film.
On the possibility of a ‘Pushing Daisies’ reboot:
“Whenever I get together with Bryan Fuller we kind of talk about how great it would be to get the gang back together. Yeah, it’d be so much fun.”
On filming ‘Driven’ in Puerto Rico when Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria devastated the island:
“Right before we started shooting Hurricane Irma hit Puerto Rico, and then we got five days in and Hurricane Maria hit, and it was just insanely destructive to that island. We shut down for a month – we all went home and I was convinced we were not going to be able to finish the movie. But when we got back, that Puerto Rican crew was just the most hardworking, problem-solving people I have ever met in my entire life, and they were eager to keep making the movie and so were we…it was a real kind of moment of perspective. Like, here we’re making a movie about car manufacturing – things don’t quite go his way – but there are people around us that need to get ice back home, they need to get fuel back home for their generators, they need to rebuild their houses and take care of their families. So it was a real privilege to be a part of that moment in Puerto Rico’s history.”
On how things have changed for him since publicly coming out:
“I don’t know what to say about it because it really didn’t feel like that much of a change… I’m 40 years old, I’ve been who I am my whole life.”
On whether he believes it’s possible to be a celebrity and have a private life:
“Always, you’ve got a choice. You choose how to conduct yourself in your personal life and how to conduct yourself on your social media life. That doesn’t ever go away. I certainly don’t feel any pressure to be someone I’m not on social media or expose things about my life that I don’t particularly want to. We’ve always got a choice.”
