“There’s a screen direction in the script for the pilot where it says, ‘Jim Harper, mid-20s, enters,’ and it said something to the effect of: ‘He’s confident without being cocky. He has no idea that he could be considered attractive, because he saw All The President’s Men when he was thirteen and never looked up.’ It was just a great little gem of a screen direction, and I felt immediately from just that, that I had a good idea of how to play this guy.”
