1428 Elm: As an actor, how did you prepare yourself to deal with the dualities? Did you have to compartmentalize the character? How difficult was it?

MI: What I did is I treated Lt. Logan like two completely different characters. I have done this type of thing before but this was subtler.

The scene in the diner when Calhoun initially approaches me, I am one character. After he starts showing me the photographs of the murder victims, then I had to switch over and support his delusion.

I wanted to show two sides. One that could be a possible partner and the other being the boss. Matt did a good job. He had so much going on with his character, he really pulled it off. The Harrowing was not an easy film.
