Thanks to Destiny for this :)
I was just flipping through my newest 17 magazine, and it turns out they interviewed Colin Hanks. There’s not much about Roswell but I found this to be interesting. ;)
Q) What were you like when you were 17?
A) I was a social butterfly. I went to a small school, and it was easy to be friends with everyone.
Q) What was the weirdest job you ever had growing up?
A) I love dogs, so I tried to be a dog walker, but it didn’t quite work out because I was a 13 year old kid trying to walk 10 dogs.
Q) Who is your best friend and how did you meet him?
A) my best friend is Sean and I’ve known him for more than 10 years. We grew up in the same neighborhood.
Q) Fess up to your single most unappealing habit!
A) I forget to call people back. I hate the phone. Getting back to people tends to happen days later.
Q) When you’re busy acting, what do you most like to do with your free time?
A) It doesn’t matter as long as I can take my dog, Taz.
Q) What would we find in your fridge at this very moment?
A) Doggie bags from restaurants. I always get food to go.
Q) If you could trade places with anyone in the world for one day, who would it be and why?
A) Primus’ Les Claypool, because not only would I be the coolest rock star, I’d also be the best bass player on the face of this planet. And I would have a great sense of humor, too.
Q) What is your motto?
A) Better to ask for forgiveness that to ask for permission.
Q) What was the absolute most frightening moment in your life?
A) The time I almost fell asleep at the wheel coming home from a concert.
Q) Do you collect anything?
A) I collect watches because I’m always late, and I need to know exactly how late I’m going to be-in order to come up with a good excuse.
Q) Tell us about the last time you got teary-eyed.
A) Yesterday when I was watching the documentary about Easy Company.
Q) If you weren’t famous, what would you do to make a living?
A) If I wasn’t an actor, I think I’d like to work behind the scenes in the music industry, maybe as a road manager.
Q) What is your pet peeve?
Q) How do you know when it’s true love after all?
A) When I can’t get her out of my mind. Everything I see and hear somehow reminds me of her.
Q) What is the strangest dream you’ve had recently?
A) That my dog was chasing another dog, except the other dog could talk. Taz wasn’t very happy.
Q) What is your least favorite household chore?
A) Cleaning up the dog hair. It’s the job that never, ever ends.
Q) Which song do you most wish you had written?
A) I’ll go with “Breaking the Girl” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
