Interview: Chance Kelly

Even if you don’t watch Fringe, you’ve probably seen Chance Kelly. He’s guest-starred on all three Law and Order franchises, The Unit, The Black Donnellys, The Sopranos, and was a feature character in HBO’s highly acclaimed Generation Kill, produced by The Wire‘s David Simon and Ed Burns. You may also have seen him on the big screen, in Unbreakable, The Departed, Little Children, or American Gangster.

Chance currently plays the shifty double-agent Mitchell Loeb on Fringe, and last week he chatted with me about his role on the show, and his experience with the cast and crew. I even got him to talk about working with Bruce Willis and Shyamalan on Unbreakable:

Adam Morgan: What was it like working with M. Night Shyamalan on Unbreakable? How many takes did you shoot for that great one-shot fight with Bruce Willis? This is one of my favorite movies!
Chance Kelly: Working with Night was great. He is a super nice young guy. It was a great opportunity to die at the hands of Bruce Willis, who is another infinitely nice and infinitely young guy (six takes). I look forward to dying at the hands of both Bruce and Night many times more in the future.

For the full interview, head over to FringeTelevision.com. On a personal note, Chance is a wonderfully kind, down-to-earth guy. He’s also in my current favorite commercial, which is running during CBS’s March Madness coverage:
