Home of the Giants actor Kenneth Mitchell, who guest starred on the CBS show, Flashpoint! was interviewed by Jenna Busch for www.ugo.com .

On Flashpoint!, Kenneth Mitchell acted as a wife beating cop taken hostage by an angry family member in the episode "Asking for Flowers".

He was asked if he had ever played a character this dark previously. This is the excerpt of that interview with his comments about his role in Home of the Giants.

UGO: Have you ever played a character like this before? Someone this dark?

KENNETH: I did this film called Home of the Giants where I played a bit of a dark character. Nothing kind of abusive like that. It was kind of interesting. These characters are quite challenging. The other interesting thing about playing this character, is that I was drunk the whole time. That's always kind of challenging to play. You can always overdo it and you really have to trust your director to keep you in check. Someone always told me, I think it was an acting coach, it's really difficult to play drunk. Don't act drunk. When they're drunk, people often pretend not to be drunk...it's something that kind of stuck in my mind while I was playing the character. And thankfully I had the director Clark Johnson (The Wire, The Sheild) on board, and he was great at kind of keeping me in check. And I think we found an interesting level of drunk throughout the episode. Going back to the original question, I guess Home of the Giants was probably a bit of a creepy character that I played. But this is definitely the creepiest of them all, so far.
