      • I'm getting ready to conduct the interview pretty soon here. Any questions submitted after this time can't be considered. Thanks, everybody! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:05, 23 October 2008 (EDT)

Questions for Ntare

  • Would you have rather played Joseph like you were originally on the show for? or do you like playing Usutu better?
  • I was wondering what Usutu's "Spirit Animal" is?
  • How does it feel to be back on Heroes having played a terrorist in the unaired pilot? Isaacthepainter 10:05, 21 October 2008 (EDT)
  • Is the turtle a big plot point? - Raiku
  • I love your chemistry with Greg Grunberg and Masi Oka. Any interesting stories from the set? Also, any chance we will see you in Volume 4? Thanks! Obi-Dan Kenobi 13:14, 21 October 2008 (EDT)
  • Was it awesome wielding a shovel? --DocM 13:42, 21 October 2008 (EDT)
  • Is Usutu a hero or a villian? Raiku 13:43, 21 October 2008 (EDT)
  • Is Usutu's ability any different from Isaac's? If so, how? Remiel DeCarta
  • (Somewhat related to the above question). How did Usutu know what Hiro was about to do? Either Usutu has seen the future as it would have been without him hitting Hiro but then had changed it by resolving to not let this happen, or he did not only see the future but also knew about Hiros intent although in the future as it happened this has not been revealed. Is Usutus power then more than just seeing the future, but also understanding it on a deeper level? Or did just nobody pay attention to this? And also is the painting part of the power or just some kind of focus? If I recall correctly Matt seemed to be able to just see and remember the future without having painted it. --Tordmor 02:39, 22 October 2008 (EDT)
  • Is it part of Usutu's ability to help Matt have this vision? It's somehow unrealistic to just use the potion --Private meta 15:10, 21 October 2008 (EDT)
  • How does your character feel about waffles? And does he miss the Turtle?Mazinkaiser 16:08, 21 October 2008 (EDT)
  • Were you disappointed that the terrorist plot line in the original pilot was cut short and you didn’t get to complete it or are you happier with the character of Usutu and his plot? Gray Knight 21:39, 21 October 2008 (EDT)
  • Can you tell us what kind of tunes Usutu actually listens to on that walkman?
  • Will your character continue to act as "guide" of sorts for the main characters of the story? --Aburu 18:05, 21 October 2008 (EDT)
  • Will we be learning more about your characters past in upcoming episodes or graphic novels? --Triforcel 18:44, 21 October 2008 (EDT)
  • How does your character, who lives alone in Africa, have a Universal Studios shirt?
    • Just wanted to note that lots of areas in Africa (and other countries) that receive donated clothes from the USA and other countries result in people wearing licensed clothing like that. You can find people with US sports teams, US brand names, Disney, etc. on their shirts and other clothing in villages throughout Africa. My sister saw this on her missions trip to Zambia this summer. GabrielPetrelli 12:08, 22 October 2008 (EDT)
      • I've seen a lot of this in Thailand. ALSO... a lot of the time, the shirts aren't even genuine, they're counterfeit and made to look American because of the exotic veneer of coolness. :) --Torley 08:40, 23 October 2008 (EDT)
  • Would it be possible for you to give us some insight on how Matt was able to see the future in I Am Become Death? Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 21:52, 21 October 2008 (EDT)
  • How did you come to get the role of Usutu? --Aburu 21:55, 21 October 2008 (EDT)
  • What role does the Walkman play in Usutu's painting?
 * I would have to say like the drugs Issac used.
  • What was that food Matt ate?
  • Talk about Joseph...
  • Are you more excited about being a terrorist on Heroes or an artist who can paint the future?
  • Were you a fan of Heroes between being cast as a terrorist and as Usutu? Did you follow the show in that time? Radicell 05:39, 22 October 2008 (EDT)
  • Have you ever hoped for a more central character on the show, or hoped that you would be given another power? If so, what would it be? Radicell 05:39, 22 October 2008 (EDT)
  • In the picture of the four villains who are they? specifically the one in the top right corner? --Tordmor 07:38, 22 October 2008 (EDT)
  • Why did Usutu paint only Matt's future?
  • If the terrorist subplot in season one had not been cut, can you tell us what we could have expected and what might have happened that was different from the plot we ultimately recieved? Tinurix 4:51 October 2008 (EDT)
  • Was it a little embarassing having one of your first few lines being a shameless product placement for Sprint? Or is that normal in the life of an actor? - Max
  • Can you tell us what's in store for Usutu and perhaps some of the characters that interact with him? - Max
  • Which Heroes actor would you most like to have a chance to work with? ---TraverseTown
  • Usutu mentions Carl Jung to Matt who does not read much.Can you tell us more about the spiritual walk and your own understanding of totem animal? --Juba 18:45, 22 October 2008 (EDT)
  • Your character seems to have a high level of deep thinking. Can you relate to this or is it purely script work? --FlamingTomDude

Usutu's food

"It has hyena dung and is an old family recipe. If there's any behind the scenes peeks I can give you, I can say that Greg was a trooper. He really dug into the paste. But Masi was the other extreme. He was like, "I need a spittoon!" [laughs]" ...Does this mean that the food was actually seriously made from hyena dung? D: Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 15:42, 29 October 2008 (EDT)


I've added new threads about this interview at 9th Wonders and IMDb.--MiamiVolts (talk) 18:04, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

  • Thanks, I appreciate that. I'm really bad at remembering to visit 9th. Sometimes I feel like a bit of a jerk going over there just to pimp my interviews. I appreciate when other people do it instead. Thanks! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:15, 29 October 2008 (EDT)
