Speaking of that, are we going to see the Pizza Poppa again?
Well, if you think, for example, that he’s just a Pizza Poppa, I think you’re sorely mistaken, because as we all know, once you get into that multiverse, be very careful. Perceptions are not what you think they are. Do you think I would’ve signed up for this one stupid little part with a guy with four lines of dialogue? Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. I’ve had long, boring talks with Marvel.
I love to hear it. Speaking of pizza, do you cook? What goes on a pizza in the Campbell house?
My mother declared the kitchen closed in high school. The cruelest trick of all to tell her sons that when they’re the hungriest in their lives, that she’s not cooking anymore. I can do a salad like nobody’s business. Like yesterday, my wife specifically said, “That salad you made yesterday was pretty good.” I go, “Really? What did you like about it?” She goes, “Oh, my God. Those tiny bits of cut up pickle and chopped up olives give it that little zest and a zing, and the shredded carrots over the top of it to give it some color and a little something.” I survived that way, and as an actor on location, I can dice and slice, and get the basic stuff. An actor can survive if there’s a Whole Foods within about a 10 mile radius.
What’s your favorite salad dressing?
Oh, it’s definitely Newman’s Italian. There’s nothing that touches it, because it’s the same type of Italian dressing that I had as a kid. Newman’s was the one who brought it back. He’s like, “What’s this other crap? I need the classic Italian.” It’s definitely Newman’s Own.
