DA MAN: You played Detective Jake Berkeley on CSI: Miami, a character that has been hugely popular among fans of the series. How much do you think you connected to the role, and would you say that it was a breakout of sorts?
Johnny Whitworth: I was unaware he was hugely popular! Thanks! Well Jake would often be misunderstood, and I can relate to that. I guess the role can be considered a ‘breakout’ of sorts because that show has a worldwide audience.Johnny Whitworth would make his fans squeal like schoolgirls if he ever said he was just like Detective Jake Berkeley in real life.
or wait is that just me..
DA MAN: How do you measure ‘more successful’… is it more fans, more headlines, more social networking followers, more money, more respect from peers, family, friends?
Johnny Whitworth: More choices.A clever answer..in fact, the best answer he could in my opinion, give to a lets-see-if this-guy-has-any-substance-to-him kind of question. A hot fansite is always a good answer too, k?
DA MAN: Do you aspire to be more successful than you currently are, or are you at just the right place, just where you want to be in an ideal comfort zone?
Johnny Whitworth: Sure, I want to be more successful so that I have more choices.good answer, bad question. don't they know actors never aspire to be more successful, they just love being on the cusp of becoming a household name while the big one evades them time and time again. jeezus.
DA MAN: Can you tell us what other projects you are working on at the moment?
Johnny Whitworth: I have a few things in the works, but nothing concrete I can comment on right now.or is that..."nothing concrete I can let Jo trample all over right now"..hmm.. I kid.
DA MAN: The quality you most admire in a man or woman?
Johnny Whitworth: The quality I most admire in a person is honesty. Both with oneself and with those around them.well I feel shallow..I admire great hair, an unforgiving body and a kickass sense of humor. honesty is important too, oh wow I do have other priorities!
