IA! when he was doing the NYE promo even I was sick of listening to the same questions over & over & over & over, I can't imagine having to continue to be nice throughout the whole promo tour

It's crazy how even in a single interview a journalist will oftentimes ask different variations of the same question. Round and round they go!

Actually, if this were a serious interview (or a police interogation), asking variations of the same question would be good technique. However, I don't think that was the conscious intent here.

Haha! Some of these journalists could have a GREAT career in police force duty and they don't even know it. At least there's a fallback! ;)

It's the nature of the beast. Each of these little interviews has to start from scratch (the movie being promoted provides a connection), since the interviewer can't assume that viewers/readers know anything much about the interviewee. So we get the same basic, unimaginative questions in each interview. Plus, the interviewer can't afford to spend a week on research before one of these throw-away junket interviews, so the interviewer spends a half-hour poking around the Web and goes for it. No interview with just half a dozen questions is going to open new territory. That's why the long magazine interviews are so superior; the interviewer can spend some time on research and then spend some real time with Zac. The interviewer can get beyond preliminaries and actually explore a few lines of inquiry.
