Post by Cluedofan » Tue Jul 26, 2005 4:13 pm

Hi All,

Okay, this is a fantastic opportunity. Lee Ving has offered to be interviewed for Cluedofan.com. So, send through ASAP any questions you'd like to pose and I'll try and get answers to as many as I can.

Any bloopers or jokes he can recall?

Was the fourth ending really filmed?
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

Which suspect in the movie would Mr. Boddy have liked to kill the most?
Oh, it's England. Croquet on the lawn, tea in silver teapots, sherry before dinner. One simply has to maintain one's standards!

Did you want to be one of the suspects? Did you play the game as a child? How long were you involved in the filming?

On the last day of filming, just before you left, did you say "I'm Lee Ving"?

:D
Green - "If he was such a patriotic American, why didn't he just report us to the authorities?"
Wadsworth - "He decided to put his information to good use and make a little money out of it. What can be more American than that?"

Prince Azure, say Lee Ving a couple times fast :D .



Some serious questions, however:

Is there any way we can get an autograph?

Did you stick totally to the script, or did you improvise at all?

How did you become involved in the movie?

Did you get along with the other actors?

Do you have any props from the set?

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when somebody mentions Clue?

When (and if) you play the board game, do you ever think of yourself as the victim? And which character do you play as?

As this was not really a blockbuster film, do people ever recognize you in the street and call you Mr. Boddy?

Have you been in touch with any of the cast or crew of Clue?
:D

Do you feel that doing the movie Clue has helped you as an actor?

Rumor has it that the portrait hanging in the dining room is actually of Mr. Boddy. Is that really true or just a rumor?

Did the cast of Clue seem to have a good chemistry, or was there off-screen strife?

Did you or any other cast member get into an on set fight of sorts?

How much of the first draft of the script that you read was retained and how much was dumped during filming?

Would you do it again?

Are there any cut scenes or parts from the novelization (if you've read it) that you wish were in the final cut?

Who did you like working with most and least in the cast?

Who do you think really killed your character?

Was your character Boddy or the butler? What do you think?

Which weapon was your favorite?

Did you play Clue?

You played Mr. Boddy so sleasy, so slimy, so perfect. How did you pull it off? Do you draw upon methods or just act naturally?

What did you think of the set and the lighting?

Did you like the script, or were any changes required?

How much money did they pay you to play this role?

Did the director pay much attention to the ideas of the cast?

Were there any mistakes on the technical end, you know, like effects not working right or anything?
