“we tolerate each other…”
ebon moss-Bachrach Micro is
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!
