Your new movie Mac Isn't Gay - in a few words, what is it about?

 

Mac Isn't Gay is a story about a man who has no idea who he is. He's visiting his therapist to talk through it. He has some sexual tendencies that other people define as gay, in reality it’s something even broader than that.

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much Joshua Jordan can we find in Mac?

 

There’s probably more of me in Mac then I’d like to admit. I'm a human ball of insecurities, so Mac and I have that in common. Plus my wife tells me I tend to overshare, which Mac does very well.

 

To put the last question somewhat onto its head, to what extent could you identify with the inner conflict Mac is going through?

 

I feel for Mac. I was in my mid thirties when I finally started to find myself. I know the feeling of not being where you’re “supposed” to be. I’ve never dreamt of rubbing lotion all over the boy wonder, like Mac. But I do know exactly how it feels when your day-to-day actions conflict with who your brain knows you are or can be. I believe Mac will eventually find his place in the world, just like I did. Hopefully that will bring him some mental peace, and a little more self control.

 

How did you become involved with the project in the first place?

 

I was lucky enough to find director Willy Adkins' post on a casting website. I actually applied for the role of the Therapist, but Willy saw my selftape and asked me to read for Mac. I guess something about this face screams "sexually confused". Once I met North Roberts, who plays the Doc, I knew Willy made the right choice.

 

What can you tell us about Mac Isn't Gay's director Willy Adkins [Willy Adkins interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?

 

I loved working with Willy. He knew exactly what he wanted from the day he started planning the film, and he helped me see it as well. Before we met the first time, Willy sent me a video of Eddie Deezen playing a character named Eugene. It was brilliant, and really helped me set the tone for Mac. On set, Willy was always super patient, kind, and helpful, all while keeping us on track. I hope I get the chance to work with him again and will  forever be grateful to Willy Adkins for the chance he took on a new actor.

 

To what extent could you identify with Mac Isn't Gay's brand of humour, and being a comedian yourself, how much of the comedy was actually in the script, how much did you improvise?

 

As a fan of comedy I think there can be a funny side to nearly everything. I do think when you’re dealing with topics such as sexuality and personal identity you need to be extra careful, and respectful. Our film was lucky. We had the brilliant writing of Jason Allen, the direction of Willy, and I really think the score was on point. It was done by Ashsha Kin. His music gave the film a nice light feel.

 

Ninety five percent of what you saw in the movie was on script. Written by the ultra hilarious Jason Allen. We improvised a little in the beginning, I believe most of it made the blooper reel. It didn't take Willy long to realize if he kept letting North and I go, we would extend the shoot for days. After that, we behaved… for the most part. We also were able to improv the scenes with the administrative assistants Colin and Elise. I still feel so bad, they had to put up with me saying and doing some highly inappropriate things that day. They were awesome!

 

A few words about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

Pretty much everyone on set was either sick, getting sick, or getting over being sick. We were all struggling. Willy was the worst. The guy could hardly walk. And yet, all I remember was everyone laughing the entire day. It was great, everyone was so nice. If I wasn't sick, it would have been perfect. Stupid ginger immune system.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

I'm currently writing a short comedy series. It's the first thing I've written specifically for myself to act in. So I'm super excited about that. Otherwise, my plan is to keep grinding and keep growing as an actor. I’ve learned so much from the process of filming this movie, I look forward to applying it in future projects.

 

As far as I know, you've started out as a comedian - so what can you tell us about that aspect of your career, and your style of comedy as such?

 

I wish I could call myself a comedian, but I can't. I have way too much respect for comedians to take that title. Not yet at least. I did the open mic thing for a while, and got a few sets here and there. Comedians, real comedians, work their asses off. They are in the clubs every night, all night, no matter what. They hustle. It’s a tough life to live. For now, I've found that if I want to give acting the justice it deserves, I really need to focus everything I have on it. But standup will always be my first love and something I will return to when I’m ready to give it the respect it deserves and requires to make it.

 

According to my information, Mac Isn't Gay is your first movie - so what caused you to try your hand at acting, and how would you describe yourself as an actor?

 

First, I had some health issues a few years back. Nothing life threatening, but enough of a problem to make me re-evaluate my life. I've been an entrepreneur my entire life, I've been successful in a corporate environment, but none of that made me feel good about me. None of that fulfilled me.

 

The second thing that happened… my wife. I've never in my life met someone who can make you feel more capable of doing anything. She fully supports and encourages me chasing my dream of being an actor. She's the most amazing person I've ever met. She's the reason I feel brave enough to do the things I do now. One day she'll figure out she's too good for me. However until that day, I just keep loving her, and she for some reason keeps loving me back. What a sucker.

 

Actors, comedians, whoever else who inspire you?

 

My first, and only, acting coach Ralph Scott. This man is absolutely amazing. He's as big as a tree, but you never feel small around him. He's kind, supportive, and a hell of an acting coach in my opinion. We've had some long lunch talks and his advice has been invaluable. He's the man.

 

Then of course, the big guys… Eddie Murphy, Jim Carrey, Seinfeld, Will Ferrel, Kevin Hart, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Jim Gaffigan, John Mulaney, Ricky Gervais, Brian Regan, Ryan Reynolds - just to name a few.

 

Your favourite movies?

 

If I'm feeling down. I'll always reach for a Jim Carrey classic. Dumb and Dumber never gets old to me.

 

... and of course, films you really deplore?

I really try to give all movies a shot. So much hard work and creativity goes into each one that I try to find something I like. The cinematography, a specific actor, or the music. That being said, what the fuck were they thinking when they made the Human Centipede movie?
