Then, James said, “Being a white male, you’re born with certain unearned privileges. My life hasn’t been filled with sorrow and deep struggle. When the divorce happened, it was the first time I felt I lost my equilibrium.”

Marsden reflected on his split from Linde and continued, “It was scary and sad and made me pull everything into focus. I needed to focus on what was important. I know regrets can be a catalyst for good things. Not to talk like a Hallmark card, but it’s true.”

It’s basically The Truman Show where you’re doing three or four weeks of doing jury duty that’s completely fake, in a fake, empty, abandoned courthouse that we populate with background players and a cast full of improv actors, and myself playing a heightened version of myself. And one guy who thinks the whole thing is real.”

Marsden went on to say that David Burnett who has worked on shows like The White Lotus and D Train approached him to play himself. He further added, “And he came to me first and said, ‘Hey, we have this idea that we want to run by you. We’re looking for a celebrity to sort of play themselves.’ He knew how much I love that world of improvisational acting.”
