Hammer: There are also characters I forgot we didn’t put on the show. We’ve been doing one for a solid year now, and I forget that nobody’s seen him, that he’s our character. I guess he would count as a new character, but to me it’s a guy who’s existed in the Venture-verse for over a year.
Publick: We usually write them that way. We almost never write characters who walk on and go, “OK, I’m a new guy you’ve never met before. I’m here to mess up your world.” We usually have new guys in and go, “Oh yeah, you’re so-and-so’s ex-husband. Or you’re that guy who’s in the background at the yard sale and now we know what your story is.”
Hammer:“You have a plug for a face and now you know why.”
