Here are some interview interludes:
On his relationship with his character, RANDALL PEARSON:
"Our backgrounds couldn't be more different. But we're both a little goofy and we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to be good, and so I find myself identifying with him and pulling the most from my life for him."
On how he felt about accepting the role:
"The perception in the country is that black men are absent when it comes to their families. So this is a wonderful image to put out into the world and an opportunity I don't take lightly."
On the coming storyline behind how he and his TV wife BETH first got to\gether:
"Very often, you choose somebody who looks like your mom, but Randall makes this conscious choice to be with a black woman, and; I really want us to explore that."
