Brendan Jack This month in Extra Virgin we talk to Brendan Jack, writer and star of forthcoming comedy Footskating 101, about Catholic schools, the Olsen twins and why a talking baby doesn't make a good movie.

A: My hair goes curly in humidity, the shame. Oh, and the hunchback.

A: Mookie.

Q: If they made a movie of your life, who would play you?
A: If Don Cheadle's not available, I'm going to have to go with Sir Anthony Hopkins.

Q: What do you like most about yourself?
A: The ability to amuse self for days - even in complete isolation.

Q: How old were you when you lost your virginity?

Q: What's your favourite movie character of all time?
A: Chevy Chase playing the dad in National Lampoon's European Vacation - gamut of emotion and absurdity, totally overlooked at Oscar time.

Q: Do you believe in keeping secrets?

Q: Can money buy happiness?

Q: Do you prefer rollercoasters or long walks on the beach?
