Super-Fun Q&A with actress Jourdan Gibson
Favorite movies/TV shows of all time?
TV Shows – Alias, LOST, The Office, Glee
Movies – Wedding Crashers, Animal House, Dan in Real Life, Meet Joe Black
If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Hmmm, I’ve gone back and forth on this question over the years…. Ok, FIRST, I would love to have the power of Innate Capability – the ability to naturally have understanding/knowledge of topics and skills without having to study them. I’d be so smart. Then, I’d like to have Superhuman Agility like Blade or vampires.
Who’s your favorite superhero?
My favorite female superhero growing up was She-Ra! She is He-Man’s twin sister. I have a twin brother, named Clay. When we were little, we thought they were the comic versions of ourselves. Cocky little buggers, weren’t we.
Who’s your favorite super-villain?
Heath Ledger’s Joker
Favorite superhero movie?
When I was little, it was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. (Donatello was my fave). Then, it was The Crow. Now, I’ll add the Blade films and The Dark Knight (haven’t seen Dark Knight Rises yet) to that list.
What’s your favorite dance move (or dance move you wish you could do)?
Why did you decide to come on board Super Knocked Up?
I loved the concept, then I watched the show = AWESOME!! Talking with Jeff, and seeing his enthusiasm for the project really sealed the deal. It’s fun to work with people who love what they do. (Plus, I get to play a Super Villain. Done.)
What are you most looking forward to in Super Knocked Up?
Getting up to New York, and being on set! Acting and being on set are my two favorite things, so I just can’t wait to get started. And, I’m pretty sure slapping Mark will be fun. I’m just assuming that will be in the script somewhere.
What’s the best part about being a supervillain?
I’m a nice person, and I usually don’t instill fear in those who meet me. Let’s change that! I can’t wait to play a character with less-than desirable attributes. Also, I think the character arc of a ‘villain’ will be so fun to convey.
What movie or show would you love to star in or have made (besides SKU of course)?
“Alias – The New Class” I’d play Sydney Bristow’s little sister, of course.
If a super-villain came up to you on the street, what would you do?
Give him/her a head start, because that’s the right thing to do. Then, I’d kick some ass.
Favorite cartoon from when you were a kid?
Fraggle Rock (and Duck Tales)
Best Saved by the Bell character?
Can’t lie…Zack Morris. (So. in. love.) Followed closely by Kelly Kapowski’s bangs.
Cookies and Milk or Pizza and Soda?
This is a TOUGH question! I have to have something sweet after I eat something salty… then something salty after I eat something sweet, and so on. So, being honest, I’d probably go back and forth between the cookies and the pizza until they were both gone. This has happened. More than once.
If you were the star of a reality show, what would it be called?
Once, my friend drew up a comic book for me called, “Jour Dee Stardust”. She’s a superhero from another planet, who often forgets her helmet during dangerous missions throughout the galaxy. Her kryptonite is her sense of direction; sometimes it takes days for her to find her way home. This is a problem in my real life too, so I think my reality show would be called- “Jour Dee Stardust: I know where I am, I’ve been lost here before”
What actor/actress would you love to guest star in Super Knocked Up?
Which SKU cast/crew member would be most likely to dress up as a superhero outside of the set?
So far, I’d say Jeff Burns. I’m pretty sure this happens weekly.
