But as far as this year goes, we see a man on a mission to find his woman and save her and to be back in her presence.As soon as that happens, there’s a lot that comes along with it.How do you think he’s going to react to that going into this season? We’re going to see that as soon as the credits pop up in the beginning of the episode. Yeah, he’s definitely hurt by Maggie doing that, even though it didn’t make a whole lot of sense where his frustration came from.
Do you think that’s something he’ll be able to get over this season? I think that he will use what happened to him as the tool to be able to relate with other people.
I mean he doesn’t have to live up to his father’s potential. But he himself believes he needs to live up to his father’s potential. He’s the kind of guy that will see the challenge and he is always going to try to be better than whatever is in front of him. But, at the same time, the reason he’s a good leader is because Tom’s a good leader and his whole life he’s learned from Tom and seen how Tom interacts.
Do you think this will allow him to finally do that? We’ll get to see Hal using those skills but, at the same time, still having that frustrated edge to him, that Hal can lose his temper, and how that affects other people when he’s doing that in a leadership position.
So he pulls me aside and he says, "Okay, we're really excited, this is what's going to happen.
We're going to open up the season and Hal's going to be paralyzed." And I stood there for a second and I was like, "Okay… " [laughs] But with that being said, that's such a gift to an actor.
