It's a good thing they don't have the Internet in Greenland

One more of these and this blog will add a new category, Actors Who Thought Their Wives Couldn't Read Or Writer. At a panel on the new Fox show New Amsterdam, about a 400-year-old cop, the discussion veered off into a discussion of the nature of true love -- not because TV critics are acutely philosophical (typical tour question: "Friedrich Nietzsche, wasn't that the guy Monica dated during the first season of Friends?) but because the cop in the show has been placed under an Indian spell that makes him immortal until the day he finds the love of his life.

That seemed simple enough until the producers mentioned that the cop has been in love many times already over the past 400 years. But he hasn't found true love. Well, we wondered, how are we supposed Tv_fox_cagr135 to know when that happens? Will he start walking funny, or what? That set off Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, the Danish actor who plays the copy. "Isn't that the question that all of us ask?" he said. "I mean, I'm married. Sometimes I love my wife to bits. Other times I go, 'This can't be it.'" To the collective gasp in the room, he responded confidently: "She's in Greenland. She's not going to read what you write."
