Men's Fitness Interview with T.J. Thyne

Men's Fitness has a great interview with T.J. Thyne. He's been in so many different projects and commercials his face is often recognizable even when his name is not.

So what comes more naturally to you, TV or film? Or is it the mix that keeps you going in this industry?

Well, I come from the school of thought that acting is acting, is acting, is acting. It doesn’t matter if it’s on stage, TV, or a film camera. The opportunity to be a storyteller is the greatest thing in the world, and I feel so lucky and really love it. I think the best-case scenario would be to do all three—to woo all three sisters of film, stage, and television. I think the people who probably have it the best are the people on cable like on Entourage, the Sopranos, etc. who have 13 episodes per season and breaks to do films and theatre. I think that’s the most ideal life.

What is it about the show that makes people want to keep watching for a third round?

The draw has always been the characters. This is a show that takes place in the world of forensics, like other shows, but ultimately you watch this show for the characters. It’s like Indiana Jones, who’s an anthropologist, but ultimately you watch it because of his character, not his job. They’re fun to watch. Also, I think the show has an excellent blend of humor with drama. There’s this fine line between the fantastical and reality, and a lot of wit.
