Steve Zahn is starring in the new film, Management, with Jennifer Aniston. The movie, which has been getting good reviews, is a romantic comedy the follows a couple from their chance meeting to a cross-country trek.
“People always ask, ‘Do you ever get pigeonholed?’ And yeah, of course, everybody does — and what a great thing to be pigeonholed in this business. But in the same breath it’s like, you know, this stoned sidekick which used to be funny is now sad.”
On the luxury of rehearsing for Management:
“Boy, that just worked. By the time we finished rehearsal, we were very happy. I think all of us were very excited and knew that it was going to work, at least on the level of our chemistry or whatever.”
On his 35 years being an actor:
“It’s always been gradual, and there’s been a lot of valleys that people don’t really see. Where you’re like, ‘I gotta sell my car.’ You know what I mean? People just assume you own a small European country and have a posse of people.”
On his decision to move to Kentucky:
“I don’t think living in a city or reading certain magazines and keeping up on the Internet makes you a better actor. It might make you a better producer. I’m content with acting. I really find it challenging and fun. . . . It’s not like I’m lacking some entertainment or need some new challenges, like ‘I’m going to produce, direct and choreograph a musical that I’m writing!’ “

The move, made Monday on a split vote, establishes a seven-member task force that will report back to the Hollywood board to make a recommendation to the national board. And it raised red flags that SAG’s elected representatives from the hardline Membership First faction want to disempower AFTRA by eliminating its jurisdiction over TV acting.
