"THURSDAY'S SPEAKER"
SEPTEMBER 10TH, 2011 - BACKSTAGE ARTICLE -  DIRECTOR'S QUOTE.
Gary Hebert, the film's writer and director, knew at the first audition that Simons was
what he was looking for. "He had amazing energy," Hebert remembers. "He came into the room like gangbusters, totally ready to go. He was a lot of fun right from the beginning, so I thought he'd be great in the part." Hebert still thought so after they were done shooting. "It was great," he says. "[Simons] is a very hands-on, physical actor. He loves having lots of little props, and he will come up with all this stuff on his own. He comes in with his crossword puzzle that he's going to be doing, or he finds all these quirky little things that he can bring to it. He's always adding something or bringing in some new idea, or adjusting something. He's really professional and totally prepared; I'd love a chance to work with him again."
