As someone who has interviewed film stars and actors before, it always fills me with dread thinking that I may ask a boring, repetitive question; one that said actors have answered a thousand times and one that will cause them to roll their eyes so ferociously that they pass out.
I try to avoid questions like “Do you like making films?” and “What’s it like acting?” I have also avoided asking the question “What was the breed of fish you shagged?” but upon reflection that was a mistake from me.
At the New York premiere of The Batman Comicbook’s Brandon Davis was approached by the Aquaman star, Jason Momoa, on the red carpet, and opened his interview with “What kind of fish was it?”
In the words of Jeff Goldblum, you did it. The crazy son of a bitch, you did it.
I have always respected BD’s work and interviews – yes, this is a poor attempt at brown-nosing him, half-expecting him to message me saying “I’m retiring. Want my job?” – but after opening his red carpet chat with this deserves a chef’s kiss.
Jason Momoa hilariously responded by saying “What? Get out of here!” before heading towards the screening, but he did reassure Brandon that it was a great question.
For context, Brandon doesn’t always ask Hollywood icons about beastiality. This comes after a recurring joke in Peacemaker, which saw John Cena’s crude antihero spreading rumours about other heroes in the DC universe, including one that said Aquaman literally slept with the fishes.
Now, you need to ask Henry Cavill about his “poop fetish”. Brandon, be a hero. Not the hero we deserve, but the hero we need.
