At the Limitless event in Los Angeles recently where Star2.com met up with the TV show’s cast, the most frequently asked question was: What would everyone do if they got hold of one NZT pill?
The clear round pill makes its user super intelligent with the ability to absorb, recall and analyse any information at a phenomenal rate. It’s the substance that helps Brian Finch (Jake McDorman) be a part of the FBI’s complex crime investigation unit.
Check out the stars’ answers.
In the show, McDorman is Brian Finch, an ordinary office worker who becomes a part of the FBI’s complex crime investigation unit. His secret weapon is the NZT pill.
“I hope that I would be much like Brian and do something for other people. Hill Harper’s got great answers for these sort of questions. You know, I’d give my supply to Hill Harper. He can do better things with it. He’s friends with the president.”
Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio
Mastrantonio plays Special Agent in Charge Nasreen Pouran in Limitless. Her character has been described as a manipulator with her own sinister agenda.
“Crikey! Do I have to answer that as well now? I think I would solve all environmental problems. To deny global climate change should now be a criminal offense.”
Carpenter stars as highly-respected FBI agent Rebecca Harris, who is also a confidant of Brian’s.
“I would do something about climate change and a few other issues.”
Harper plays Rebecca’s partner Agent Spellman Boyle in Limitless. He describes his character as the most distrusting of Brian.
There is some jealousy between the two characters because Spellman was the star FBI agent until Brian, with his dose of NZT, proves that he’s more adept at solving crimes.
“I would develop a very cheap highly-efficient way to desalinate sea water and then we could end world hunger.”
Limitless premieres on Sept 23 at 9pm on RTL CBS Entertainment HD (HyppTV Ch 616).
