"It was just enjoyable to sit in a room with Jeffrey and Luke and watch the movie together. We hadn't done that and I love listening to Jeffrey. It was hard because on the day that we were doing it, Ron wasn't with me and that was the saddest thing because he's the movie. So it was hard to not have him in the room at that time to do the commentary. I'm sure I say completely irrelevant things like what kind of food I had for lunch that day or something so please tune me out."
Other extras show the lavish sets, but they can only provide a distant picture of what they were actually like. "The sets were massive, that New York street they built completely on the stage at Korda Studios and every sticker, every bit of graffiti, Guillermo had control over where everything was placed. They were massive sets. Yeah, the Golden Army room was so huge. It was just an echo chamber. It was an old arena that had never been completed. I'm spoiled forever."
Now Blair is home in L.A. shooting the series Kath and Kim. "Kath and Kim's going well. We're picked up for a back nine. I'm loving working with everybody. The writing's getting better and we're finding our characters. It's a very different experience from anything else I've done but I'm enjoying it."
There has only been one major adjustment to the TV schedule. "TV's a lot of wardrobe fittings. That's all I can say. Every week it's a whole different wardrobe and I didn't realize. For a movie, you get your wardrobe, you have it the whole movie. For TV, every week, 'We need you for a wardrobe fitting.' Never have so many people seen me naked with bad lighting."
Hellboy II is out on DVD and Blu Ray. Kath and Kim airs Thursday nights on NBC.
