Zap2it: How is it doing a series like “The Art of More” for streaming as opposed to cable or broadcast?
Dennis Quaid: There’s no difference. There’s the lights, the cameras and the crew. Everything’s the same.
Zap2it: How much of a learning curve was there to bone up on your character of rough-around-the-edges self-made tycoon Sam Brukner?
Dennis Quaid: I don’t know if I did so much boning up this time. I felt like I already knew this guy, so I went with that. I just let it happen. I didn’t do a whole lot of research or anything like that. I just came up with a back story for him. That was about it.
Zap2it: Does Sam like art for art’s sake or for where it can get him?
Dennis Quaid: Yeah, he loves art. There are certain things he loves. He sees the beauty in it but he would sell it in a minute for, not necessarily the right price, but for the right [situation].
Zap2it: Do you think there will be a learning curve for the audience for something as esoteric as an art auction house?
Dennis Quaid: Isn’t there always? Every time I sit down to watch a series, it’s always a commitment. It’s always a squirm for about the first episode or 10 minutes or whatever it is because you’re getting to know it, [getting familiar with] a different world. And so yeah, there’s a learning curve for an audience on any show.
