The show will debut this winter.
In an interview with Loop 21, Michael talks about his biggest fear, family and his fight against social media and Taraji P. Henson. Here’s what he had to say:
On his biggest fear and having to face it while shooting Underworld Awakening:
“I’m terrified of heights. The wire work wasn’t very high. We did it all in a parking garage; my wire work was in a parking garage so I didn’t have to go stand on the edge of a building or anything like that. That’s where I get scared”
On what he learned from Taraji while working with her on “Think Like a Man”:
“Taraji--her ability to focus, her knowledge of this business, her sense of humor--I think all of that was really really good to see. Both of us came into this movie as somewhat dramatic actors and it was nice to be silly, to be light, to have fun and to not be the dramatic moral compass of the film.”
“I have been fighting it. I have been fighting it. I think more than likely, and I haven’t really said this publicly, but more than likely I will be on Twitter in 2012.”
“I‘d love to be able to give to my children what my parents were able to give to me. And if I’m blessed to be able to do that, fantastic. If I’m not, then life goes on. You have to do the best you can. There’s plenty of people out there doing the best they can every day. Some people are okay with it, and some people are like no, this is how it’s supposed to be. I do think we have to bring the family back; I do.”
