On how he was cast as the Postman:
|“|| The casting people were very concerned that... the perception of me is a comic person, so they were afraid that me being cast in the role would take people out of it.
The producers went over the casting executive’s head and went to the network, and they agreed to letting me do it. That was a nice little break, but I had to jump through a lot of hoops to get it.
