Then on [October 9th] I start work on a new movie called Angel of Death.  Not the Angel of Death from Hellboy II, the Angel of Death played by [Grindhouse’s] Zoe Bell.  She’s kind of a mafia hit woman and I play a mafia doctor.  I’m the one who patches her up.  So I’ve got three pivotal scenes in the script with her.  I’m a doctor who does all of this under the table, off the record patching up of mafia folk, and I’m on heroin.
