Moviefone: To begin with, Billy, can you talk about your initial reaction to the scripts and what it was like working on this series with Amit Bhalla and Lucas Jansen?

Billy Crudup: It exceeded all of our expectations, to be truthful. Amit and Lucas had really reached for something original. When I read it, I identified with a certain aspect of the salesmanship in Jack. I remember that in my dad and the hope that went with it, and the desire to make people's lives better, to be the person who's an agent of change.

He thinks of himself as an evangelist, and his message is, “You can solve your problems with a little bit of hope in the future, and I'm going to sell you that hope in the future in the form of a deed that says you've got a property on the moon.” The world that they had created with these gadgets and with the retro future feel, became material in front of all of our eyes day by day, and we all watched in wonder, as cars floated and robots served beers.

MF: The series is filled with futuristic gadgets, Nicholas, was there one gadget in particular that caught your eye on set?

Nicholas Podany: There's a gadget that I use in a grocery store, that we find Joey working at when we first meet him. What it does is it is just this conveyor belt where you put a canned soup on it. The shelf is reachable, you can definitely reach up to get to the shelf, but you have this whole massive machine that takes up half the aisle to just put the soup cans where you could have originally reached anyway.

So, what I love about the gadgets in the show for the most part is, cars with wheels move as fast as cars without, but why not have it? Most of the devices, most of the gadgets in this show, are just a hair bit useless, except you need them because they'll make your life better.

MF: Finally, Billy, the sales team Jack works with and his leadership style?

BC: Well, first of all, the team of actors that we had around us is a superlative team of actors, and collaborating with them creatively on defining who this team is and where is the chemistry between them? I don't know what the right word for them is … Carnies? Why are they together? I think there's a certain level of trust that goes in the hope that each of them is going to help the other in building a slightly brighter future for them every day.

Jack always tries to start with a positive message, no matter how dark the day had been before, because every day is going to start with the idea that this is the one, until you have to turn the page, go to sleep, and then wake up for the next one. This is a team that'll go along with that.
