Polished Edge: Celebrity Q&A- Mark-Paul Gosselaar of 'Franklin & Bash' on TNT
Q: Are you disappointed that co-star Breckin Meyer hasn’t included stories from your friendship in TBS’ “Men at Work,” the new buddy comedy he created?
A: I’m relieved. I think a lot of the material he’s using is from his past, before we started our relationship. I don’t think he’s caught up to our time frame.
Q: What sort of a man has your character, Los Angeles lawyer Peter Bash, become?
A: He’s a bit more comfortable. I don’t feel that he second-guesses whether or not he should be where he’s at. He’s got a bit more confidence.
Q: How does Peter deal with women, especially women in authority?
A: I sometimes feel like he puts on an act to cover
what’s going on inside, but I think Peter is a very sensitive and genuine person, especially when it comes to women. He’s a romantic, so dealing with women in authority, there’s that level of respect.
That’s the thing with our show; we never, in my opinion, are disrespectful to our female clients as well as the females that are running around our man-cave. I don’t think we do anything that’s gross or macho.
Breckin and I, from day one, said, “Don’t make these guys (jerks).” We don’t want people to turn off because we’re being disrespectful to the opposite sex. If we’re being lecherous, it’s gross.
I know that Breckin is the same way. We both have daughters, so we would never do anything like that.
