Q: Did meeting them help you get inside the mind of a mystery novelist?
A: No, we didn't sit around and chat about being writers or anything like that. I'm not the kind of actor to write a book or follow a writer around to know how to play a writer. I'm not that guy. I just say to myself: 'What if I were a writer? How would I be?' A lot of it's right there on the page, so a bunch of the hard part's done for you.
