“it’s funny because, i mean, he’s deep in this role but you see him in real life he’s a pretty mellow guy, he’s a musician, he’s a good singer, him and his band played a lot in town while we were filming, so we’d wrap and go watch jeremy get out of his evil, brooding, bad guy stuff and on the stage. it was fun”
“People say to me all the time “Brian, how old are you?” You know what? I don’t think it matters what day you were born. I think being into music and being in a rock band keeps you a teenager all your life. And I’m gonna be a f**king teenager all my life"
“colin and i really worked a lot on back-story, when we met for the fist time before the film started we got along right away and ended up being soul mates in some sort of weird way, you know like distant family. we didn’t really have to work on cameraderie”

When I first met Peter Falk, I hadn’t seen any Columbo episodes. I only knew him as the guy reading the story to Fred Savage in “The Princess Bride” and “Max” from Jon Favreau’s movie “Made.”
HOW I GOT THIS PART:
I was in The Groundlings School with Peter Falk’s wife, Shera, who is a wonderful woman and a very funny actress. After our showcase, Peter gave me a bear hug and said, “I LOVE THIS GUY!” Falk meant it too because he cast me in his 2003 Columbo movie, “Columbo Likes the Nightlife,” which got me in the Screen Actors Guild.
If you haven’t read Peter Falk’s autobiography, “Just One More Thing,” you should.
(Before he signed the package, Falk stared at me for a somewhat abnormal amount of time. After the take, he said to me “I did that to give you more screen time.”)
