RECKLESS Premieres on CBS Tonight

By

It’s time for summer premieres and tonight RECKLESS premiere on CBS. The show stars Twilight alum Cam Gigandet and is directed by Catherine Hardwicke. I know it’s gonna sound bad to say, but I am worried about shaky camera thing going on, but I am willing to brave it on the off chance that we may get to see Cam’s six pack on the TV screen.

Cam talked to Collider about becoming involved with the project, working with Catherine again, how it was to film and so much more.

On how he became involved with the project…

When I read the script, I could see the potential of where things could go, and it was something new and unique to me, in my career, so I was immediately drawn to it. So, I met with everyone at CBS and the creators and Catherine [Hardwicke], the director of the pilot, and got a feel for how much they wanted to explore and how much they wanted to push the envelope, and give us the freedom to explore ourselves and jump into the deep end of the pool. When I put it together, with all of these things, I just knew that I couldn’t really say no. I couldn’t pass up this opportunity, and I’m glad I didn’t. But it was nerve-wracking to accept any show because you don’t know where it’s going and you could be on there for 10 years. We were just all so grateful that, after shooting this first season, we were as excited about it at the end, as we were at the beginning.

On Working with Catherine now versus the first time…

No, she’s grown as a director and her tastes have changed. She’s just gotten more experience, like anyone would. What’s great is that our work has been spaced out enough that we’re both growing. Whenever we come back and work together, on one hand, we have this short-hand and this comfortable easability, but we’re also finding these new things out about each other, that we’ve learned throughout the years. You can bring that together, and it’s a collaborative art form where we can both learn something from the other. That’s what you want from the relationship with a director like that.

On the ensemble cast…

We all loved each other so much, from day one, and we would play games together. There was just an immediate relationship. When there’s such an ease, it just allows you more freedom when you’re actually working together. There’s a trust there, so we could try new things and experiment because there was such an instant connection with everyone. That stuff is so rare that when you have it, you want to take advantage of the opportunity to really create and have a trusted partner.
