Transcript:James Kyson Lee Interview - Heroes and Termination ShockRebecca Murray from About.com Hollywood Movies at the World Premiere of Fast and Furious.
James Kyson Lee – HeroesTell me what's happening with Heroes. Is there going to be a next season? Do we know anything yet?
James Kyson Lee: "Yeah, we've been officially picked up. I think it's going to be between 18-20 episodes for Season 4. We actually finish up on Thursday's tomorrow and then we get about a three month break. However, the writers are going to be back to work in April busy getting ready for the next season. So, I think Volume 5 is going to be called 'Redemption.' There's going to be exciting stuff coming up."
Have they told you anything yet?
James Kyson Lee: "I don't know anything. I think they're going to spend the next two months to kind of figure stuff out. I like finding out as it comes."
You don't want to know everything in advance.
James Kyson Lee: "Yeah. Plus, I don't think they know everything either. I think they kind of put it together as ideas come flying across here and there and then they just go with it."
And you've got some movies coming up too, right?
James Kyson Lee: "Yeah, Termination Shock is a film we filmed in actually Bulgaria for the Sci-Fi Channel. I believe late May or early June they're going to premiere it. I saw some footages yesterday. It actually looks pretty good. You know, these sci-fi movies you never know because there's so many CGI and special effects stuff added in. But so far what I'm seeing I like it."
You have to trust your director on those and just figure they're going to put something good in and not something cheesy.
James Kyson Lee: "Well, especially when you're in Bulgaria, you know? You're in a totally different environment and I think there's about four of us from the States. Mat King, who's our director, was an Aussie who's actually from London so we just all had a great time together. He had a very easygoing vibe. You know those Aussie mates."
Did you get to hang out off the set and explore?
James Kyson Lee: "The four leads, we got pretty close and we spent a lot of time together. We had Sundays off so we'd go out into the city and just walk around and see the parks and the museums, and the cathedrals were pretty amazing. A lot of Russian and Czech influence so they had just amazing looking cathedral buildings."
Now this is a car movie, are you a car guy?
James Kyson Lee: "Yeah, totally. I mean I can't wait to see some of the cars in the film. I remember the first one – it was awesome. The third one, ridiculous. So I just know it's going to be a fun and exciting time in there."
Do you have a favorite car?
James Kyson Lee: "Oh my god. Right now, I'll say me dream toy would be a Ducati. It's out of this world. I'm really into the Tesla that's coming out in 2010. It's going to be all electric which is phenomenal, but not cheap. So either I'm going to have to save up some money or take it for a joy ride for a day. You know what I mean?"
