Bonus Trivia

.

On his relationship with J.J. Abrams: "We’ve been friends since…it’s going on like 25 years because we made movies when we were kids and I was one of those kids who made Super 8 movies when I was a kid...and really only started getting to be better friends after college when he was done. But suffice it to say, we’d always been friends and did not actually start working together until "Alias"...And so J.J. asked me in kind of the middle of season 1 of "Alias" if I would come in and help him block cuts and I didn’t know what the h*ll I was doing. I had no interest in television but you know, your friend’s asking. So I thought I would go in and I ended up staying...And it wasn’t until after "Alias" was done and "Lost" was up and running that we had made a deal for television at Warner Brothers and a deal for features at Paramount and really kind of set up the company as we had always talked about."

On "Star Trek"(2009): "I didn’t watch the series at all. J.J. references me always at the other end of the spectrum as the dumb guy. Okay? Who’s never seen…I didn’t see any of them, but there was a reason why I never watched it and we grew up on all the same things which were "Twilight Zone" and all those shows...[but]you suddenly realize you’re working on something that was so iconic in your childhood, even for me. Like all those terms. I remember it all and the idea that now you’re being allow to make it is very crazy." (2009) http://collider.com/entertainment/interviews/article.asp?aid=11851&tcid=1
