Christian Slater is psyched for "Breaking In" Season 2. After all, the new season almost didn't happen. In an interview with "Good Day NY," (weekdays, 9 a.m. ET on Fox) Slater could barely contain his excitement about Meghan Mullally joining the cast, his character Oz's Star Trek chair, and well, the joys of seeing himself on TV.
Slater beamed about comedienne Mullally, who joined "Breaking In" this season as Veronica, a character who originally posed as a temp secretary, but was actually the head of a company looking into acquiring Contra Security. Slater had nothing but good things to say about his new TV boss. "Megan Mullally from 'Will and Grace ... great actress, full of energy, and she likes to throw money around, as you can see," he said.
Slater also discussed his own character, who's the ring leader of the information security firm at the center of the show. "This character Oz is a lot of fun. My favorite thing about this guy is that he gets to sit in the Captain Kirk chair from the original ["Star Trek"] series ... this guy is definitely the captain of this particular ship, which I enjoy," Slater beamed. Later, he told more stories about the chair. "I was naked in the Kirk chair, covered in roses."
But then Slater got distracted ... by himself. Looking around the studio, he commented, "There's all these monitors and things, and I'm a phenomenal narcissist! I see myself in every frame, it's crazy. I'm in heaven!"
"Breaking In" continues its second season on Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. EST on Fox.
