“we tol­er­ate each other…”

ebon moss-Bachrach Mi­cro is

SFX - - The punisher -

what’s mi­cro’s re­la­tion­ship with frank?

We have found our­selves with com­mon en­e­mies and it’s a mar­riage of con­ve­nience. We tol­er­ate each other. Our mu­tual de­sire to kill some peo­ple is the foun­da­tion of our re­la­tion­ship! It’s a part­ner­ship that some­times flirts with be­ing friend­ship. Mostly our re­la­tion­ship ex­ists in the prison cell­mate va­ri­ety.

did you know the char­ac­ter?

When I was talk­ing about do­ing the show they wouldn’t di­rectly tell me who I was play­ing. I had to be kind of a de­tec­tive from the lit­tle bit of ma­te­rial they had sent me. They changed the name. They’d white out one name in the script and write an­other fake name, but I think they went from David to Don­ald – they don’t work so hard. So if you’re kinda smart you can do a Google search or two. So I fig­ured out what part it was. I liked comic books as a kid but right now I’m not much of a comic book per­son.

what did you make of the comic book ver­sion?

I think he’s in­ter­est­ing but we wanted to do more. He’s a one-trick pony in the comics that I’ve found. He equips him with stuff. It starts to get in­ter­est­ing when their re­la­tion­ship gets bad. That’s when Mi­cro gets more in­ter­est­ing to me. And we haven’t ex­plored that area as of yet… And he’s dead [in the comics]. No, this is a three­d­i­men­sional portrait. I hope!
