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.
