I’m in the neighborhood, across the street from Colin Farrell’s character. He’s not looking for love, he’s just looking for his victims. My character thinks it’s a love connection, but really I’m just his next snack.
At Comic-Con, I snuck into the fan screening of Fright Night — and they loved it. We definitely tried to stay true to the core of the story, but the original was more campy and kitschy — and our version is scarier. It definitely still has the humor, though.
The show is three girls, and they’re all in assistant-level positions in L.A., and they’re all very smart — and very cute. It’s a dark show, too, with humor. But it’s definitely sexy. Men will not mind sitting down and watching it with their girlfriends.
Sex and The City went off the air, and — my writing partner, Leah Rachel, and I — we were waiting tables together, and there was this huge void. We weren’t really loving anything we were auditioning for, so we just decided to come up with our own idea. So we did. We wrote a script and got it to Steve Levinson, and he brought it to Mark Wahlberg, and they decided that they wanted to produce it, and we went in to HBO, and that’s sort of how it all started. But, yeah, I definitely created it because I would like to be in it. We’re hoping for 2012.
