TV Guide Online: Since Stanley Kubrick wanted "Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing" in Eyes Wide Shut, did you negotiate a deal for usage in exchange for your not having to stay awake through the movie?

(long pause) What's your next question?

TVGO: When you made Silence of the Lambs, were you insulted that Hannibal Lecter tore off and wore the other security guard's face instead of yours?

TVGO: How much coffee did you have to drink during your coffee shop scene with Kyle MacLachlan in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me?
Isaak:
It wasn't coffee. Because of my health regimen, I refuse to drink things with caffeine. It was gin with chocolate in it.

TVGO: Ms. Pac Man — harmless fun or wicked game?
Isaak:
I don't know what that is. What's Ms. Pac Man?

TVGO: It's an arcade game from the 1980s.
Isaak:
My work with children keeps me so busy that I don't have time for video games. And that's bogus, too.

TVGO: Yeah, got that. After Helena Christensen appeared in the "Wicked Game" video, did models start offering to mud wrestle just to be your leading lady?
Isaak:
No, but I'd like to know how the heck you came up with that?

TVGO: Let's just say I had some help. What would it take to get you in the Surreal Life house?
Isaak:
What's that?

TVGO: It's that WB show with celeb has-beens like Emmanuel Lewis and MC Hammer...
Isaak:
Me in a house with MC Hammer and Emmanuel Lewis? I'm there man. You don't have to pay me. That's an honor.

TVGO: Fiona Apple once opened for you on tour, so maybe you can tell us — is she a child prodigy or a future former child star waiting to happen?
Isaak:
She's a genius with the body of a teenage goddess.

TVGO: Now that you're getting the hang of this, let's go back to those initial questions. Tell me: You weren't just a little bit jealous that the other guy got his face torn off in Lambs?
Isaak:
I'm sorry. I don't know where to go with that one.
