Colin Ferguson: (about wanting to please the fans) There's this group that watches so closely that, when it is hour 16 and you haven't slept in three days and you honestly feel like phoning it in, you don't. Because you know you're gonna bump into that person on the street who's gonna be like, 'I saw what you did -- and that was wrong'. (laughs) It helps out.
Colin Ferguson: (about working in a lightbulb factory) Yeah, I've really worked my way up! (laughs) For the job interview, they brought out something with a bunch of bolts on it and they start a stopwatch and say, "Go!" You've gotta screw them in, test your fine motor skills. So if you ever want to know how a lightbulb is made, I can break it down for you. (laughs) I also worked at a phone factory for a while.
Colin Ferguson: (about the fact that he was a bit anxious, even though his new show, Eureka, is a hit) I'm from Canada, our national (pastime) is self-loathing.
Colin Ferguson: (about what he is going to do during the hiatus of Eureka) I am doing a movie of the week with Lara Flynn Boyle for Lifetime. It is called The House Next Door. We are married and the house next door is evil! It will be a nice change of pace.
Colin Ferguson: (on whther or not he quit school) Stupidly, no. When I was working in Detroit I actually took three classes across the river at the University of Windsor, Ontario. So my days were stupidly long. I took Victorian authors, Jacobean playwrights. It was brutal. I ended up blowing my knee.
Colin Ferguson: (about Eureka) I like science, so yeah, that's not a tough sell for me. It's the selling of the ideas that gets me rather than the science of the show. Like, for example, we have one show where [a citizen of the town] figures out to how to run really fast. I'm not so interested in the chemical composition of whatever it is that the guy is taking as much as I am [like], 'That's a pretty cool idea!' You're back to when you're 12 - that'd be really cool to be able to do that.
Colin Ferguson: (about his acting on Eureka) I have to play a lot of the same [acting] beats. It's an exercise in variety - how many times can you ask, 'What does that mean?' And [the writers] have done a really good job of shaking that up.
Colin Ferguson: (about the success of Eureka) It's sort of fun. I think that's the reason you go to cable in the first place, to have a show that has a chance and that [the network] nurtures. It's great to know that it's going to air, that people will get a chance to see it.
