Marsters learns to leave Spike behind

A new interview of James from Boston now :

James Marsters is best know for playing Spike on both Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel, where his mix of intensity, wit, and soul (pun intended) earned him a devoted following. He currently has a recurring role on Without A Trace and later this season will return to Smallville for multiple episodes (reprising a role from last year) as well as appearing on the upcoming second season of BBC America's Torchwood. Recently Boston Now talked to him about his acting, his singing, and the part that made him famous.

BN: You've got a lot on your plate these days. Was it a conscious decision to work more or is this just when the jobs came in?
JM: Life goes in cycles. This is just when the jobs came in. I'm hitting a good part of my life mentally ... I don't know if biorhythms are correct but sometimes you just hit a good part of your life and things are just humming. People want to hire you, people can't get enough of you and everything you do seems to turn out well, and then sometimes you can't seem to catch a break. Frankly for about nine months now I have been a little golden. That probably means in a year I'll hit a skid but right now things are humming.

BN: How did you end up on Without A Trace?
JM: I don't know why the cast me. I know they like me on set but I think they just like my haircut (laughing). They didn't need me for ratings; it was just an audition. They needed a cop that the audience would trust quickly and I was in a good mood ... I think I bragged about the brand new suit I was wearing (laughing). I think I'm the trustable cop, which probably means I'm going to die.

BN: That leads into my next question. Reports have been that you are doing four episodes with the potential to turn into more.
JM: I'm glad they told you (laughing). That's great. Really?
