Jon: I had one miniature scene in Terminator 3, but I was hardly in it so it doesn't make a difference.
Jon: I've gone online a few times with a couple of buddies of mine, but I'm not hooked up in my house because I think it would ruin my life. I would just start testing games for a living.
Jon: (On his attraction to "Stay Alive:) Originally the producers from Life As We Know It got in contact with McG and told them that they should keep an eye out for me. They brought me this project and when I met [co-writer/director] Brett Bell and [co-writer] Matt Peterman they explained how they wanted to make this film a real character piece. They didn't want a typical teen slasher film. I was immediately sold because it sounded like a piece of art with horror attached to it. Which, you know, nothing sounds much better than that.
Jon: (On his favorite part about the movie, "Stay Alive") My favorite part? It's pretty hard not to enjoy it, just because when you're doing a horror film there's this very particular camaraderie that happens on set. I don't know what it is but it's so different from any other project I've done. The greatest part was being in New Orleans with this particular cast. It's funny, a lot of times you do movies and you create friendships but you don't really keep them because you're all on different projects and busy and it's understandable. But on this everyone has remained so close. I mean, I see the entire cast all the time and we hang out all the time. But being in New Orleans down there just felt like being at camp. It was just partying and having fun and running around and screaming covered in blood. It was just a lot of fun, man.
Jon: (On a question if the Blood Countess existed) It actually is, which was also a really cool thing about this movie… When they pitched it to me they said, "It's about this video game and the line between reality and [the game] is completely broken." The video game is based on a true story. There's a little girl who's name is Elizabeth Bathory… she supposedly came from Romania and killed over 500 young girls and bathed in their blood to maintain her youth. She had this massive torture chamber, set up a fake school, and got all these girls to come to this huge private school where, in fact, they were just getting kidnapped and tortured.
Jon: (On a question if the "Stay Alive" game will be sold in stores) Oh my God, yeah, man! I think anyone would. The second they see this one level in the video game they're just going to freak out. I mean it's a first-person shooter… nasty, overwhelming. It's just crazy. One shot you run around with double-fisted nail guns shooting little girls, it's pretty nasty.
Jon: (On upcoming projects) Yeah, just finished a TV show three days ago. It's a series that will be coming out on NBC in June called Windfall. It's about a couple of lottery winners who win the lottery and it tells how the money affects their lives
Jon: (On Frankie Muniz) He's a blast, man, no joke, this kid is the funniest guy I've ever hung out with. I mean, in the middle of shooting he'd bust into the Robot, he'd bust out dancing. It was really funny, he's a great cat
Jon: (On video games) You know, I know it's such a trendy thing to say, but Halo has just got everyone hooked, everyone and their mother. So, my buddies and I just play that all the time. But an all time classic for me is Duck Hunt, I'm a huge Duck Hunt fan.
Jon: I'm a big gamer. Recently I haven't been able to, since I've been so incredibly busy but I've been playing games since I was 6 years old, so constantly.
Jon: (On Stay Alive) Well, Wonderland production company, who put this thing together, contacted me and gave me a script and I read it. They introduced me to [filmmakers] Matthew Peterman and Brent Bell and I sat down with them and they had this killer idea about not making a typical horror film and making something look really cool…the idea of adding the whole video game aspect. They were new on the scene and they were really excited about making a piece of art transferred into a horror film.
Jon: Well we moved a lot. I didn't just grow up in Iowa. I grew up in a lot of different places. We were all born in Boston, my brother and my dad, and I were all born in Boston, and then eventually we moved to Iowa. My dad and my mom create high-class nightclubs, bowling alleys, and billiard halls, places where women feel safe. And they're all over the country, so they travel back and forth to make sure they're all going smoothly.
Jon: (On his brother, Ben Foster) He's definitely my best friend and my mentor. A lot of times my dad was traveling, so Ben really raised me.
