Ellen: Gabriel Mann Quits Acting
Gabriel Mann told Ellen he was two weeks away from giving up on his dream and quitting the acting business, when he got cast in this show.
He was preparing to move home and live with his mom again when he got the script for Revenge. “Just when you think you’re out, they pull you back in,” Gabriel said, doing his best Al Pacino impression, which was not great.
He called Ellen one of his idols, and said he was flattered to be her guest.
Gabriel Mann Station Wagon
Ellen said she expects Revenge to get picked up for a second season, and when it does, she hopes he invests in a new car.
Gabriel explained that he currently drives a gold Saturn station wagon, which he called “a soccer mom mobile.”
He said it doesn’t fit him, because he doesn’t have kids or play soccer. “They call it a Saturn, because that’s where you’re going to have to go to get parts, ‘cause they don’t make it anymore.”
Gabriel said his nickname for his car is the Golden Globe. “I don’t have one, but I drive in one,” he said.
Ellen: Gabriel Mann Bumper Sticker
Ellen gave Gabriel a bumper sticker for his car, which said, “In this beat up car is a huge, huge TV star.”
Gabriel also had a gift for Ellen. He gave her a prop from the show, a high tech video camera. But it made her paranoid, since his character on the show uses it to spy on people.
Revenge airs Wednesday nights on ABC.
