Hi Thomas!

I’m impressed by all the projects you’ve been working on or initiating. Looking forward to Crown Vic... The Lycan? Thank you for everything you’re doing!

I’d like to know what criteria you use to decide that the preparation for a large acting role is ready?

Gut feeling is very important but you are a self-entrepreneur so my guess is that if you are paid to be ready within 3 weeks, it would be nuts to spend 5 weeks on the preparation?

Hey Tom, glad to have caught this one as missed the last Q and A.  I've a question about Queen Vic, read pretty much all the forum thread about it but can't see if it's been released on DvD or something and how I can get to see it in the UK.  Cheers, hope you have a great Yule.

So, first question!  Crown Vic, amongst other films of yours features some pretty 'brisk' driving - how much do you do, and how much would you like to do?

thanks! Lycan is in the works with Aftershock Comics

prep is determined by how much time i have before the start date. 

i take as much as i can get. sometimes that's not a lot!

For those of us who are seeing your work for the first time, because of The Expanse, what should we watch to catch up?

i would check out the Stephen King 1922 on Netflix

Crown Vic just came out

old school check out my baseball flick 61* 

and of course The Punisher

if you like that kinda thing!

Hi Thomas and happy holidays to you! Thanks to take time for this new Q&A 😊

Have you read books of The Expanse, especially book 5 Nemesis Games, for your work on season 5? Or did you prefer not to?

Challenging!

One more question:

Are you a director who says "go" and leaves room for spontaneity?

Thomas, the saying goes that you should never meet your heroes (advice I would happily ignore if I had the chance to meet you 😉) - have you ever met someone you've admired who's shattered your illusions, or totally exceeded them? No names necessary!

It’s BEYOND AWESOME that you got to direct an episode of THE EXPANSE😎  What were some of your favorite parts of that whole experience?
