Tell Us About Yourself(ie): Rob Kerkovich
The NCIS: New Orleans actor takes our Q&A!
What's your wallpaper on your phone and/or computer?
The wallpaper on my phone is a photo of my infant son wearing a turtleneck. I'm trying to bring T-necks back into the fashion forefront, so I figured I'd get him started early. My laptop's wallpaper is an Atari 2600, which basically shaped the course of my life.
When you walk into a bar, what do you typically order?
First I pretend to understand the difference between whiskey and scotch, and then I order one of those.
What's the one word you are guilty of using too often?
"Like." Like if we were talking, I'd be like, Oh man, I say 'like' way too much. I even put it in text messages. It's awful.
What is the last thing you searched for on Google?
"Benthic worm." I had to reference it in an upcoming episode, and wanted to know exactly what I was talking about. I was hoping it was going to be something from Dune, but no such luck.
Who is the last person that called or texted you?
Seventeen different friends to discuss the new Star Wars teaser trailer.
What was the last awkward situation you were in and how did you handle it?
I was on set and totally called a crew member by the wrong name, which I only realized after the fact. So I made a point to track him down and apologize, but it turned out he hadn't even heard me when I said it, which then made it more awkward.
When is the last time you went to a theater?
Well, I TRIED to go to a theater a week ago to see a friend's one man show, but we were too late due to baby-related delays. One thing I'm learning as a new parent: Always depart five and a half hours earlier than you think you need to.
What TV show should everyone should be watching?
The Golden Girls. I'm 100% serious. If anyone wants a lesson in great characters, track down reruns on cable.
And what is your TV guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasures tend to be more movie-based. Basically any horror movie from the 1980s.
What's the first CD you bought?
I bought two CDs at the same time: C+C Music Factory and The Doors Greatest Hits. I was pretty awesome.
What is the one food you cannot resist?
Sandwiches. The food of the gods.
What music are you currently listening to?
The newest TV on the Radio album, Seeds.
What movie makes you laugh the most?
This is the hardest question to answer in the history of ever. I'll cheat and say it's a split between Ghostbusters and the first Naked Gun.
What drives you absolutely crazy?
The paper thin walls in my four-plex apartment building.
Pick one: Kittens or puppies?
Kittens, for their immediate housebroken-ness.
New York or Los Angeles?
L to the A.
Comedy or drama?
Bacon or Nutella?
I just ate a hamburger, so I'll go Nutella.
Coffee or tea?
'80s or '90s?
'80s, for its various sitcoms about robots and/or aliens.
NSYNC or BSB?
The Spice Girls.
Hannah Montana or Lizzie McGuire?
(Googles Lizzie McGuire...) Lizzie McGuire.
And finally: Tell us a secret.
I rock a mean falsetto.
