Quickest way to make a fool of oneself in an interview is to ask an actor (whose character is deseased in a film series which isn’t prone to supernatural resurrections) if he’s coming back. Not that we don’t appreciate inquiring minds, but we have some sympathy for the actors here, who have to field the same tired question several times over. It’s obvious the source of the speculation is actually the interviewers, not the fanboys or whatnot.
“Cotton is dead!” says Schreiber. “I know, I keep reading on the Internet that I’m doing Scream 4, but I don’t know where that comes from. No one ever told me I was doing Scream 4. No one ever mentioned anything to me.”
If pop journalists actually watch the movies they’re asking about, they’d know there’s no basis for the question. Surely?
