The TNT drama series Perception, now in its third season, follows Dr. Daniel Pierce (Eric McCormack), a unique and eccentric neuroscience professor whose paranoid schizophrenia helps him solve crimes with FBI agent and former student Kate Moretti (Rachael Leigh Cook). To kick off Season 3, the show is set in Paris, France, where Pierce is embarking on an exciting new personal journey. But shortly after his arrival, he is asked to help with a dangerous international case that turns into something of a spy thriller.
During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Eric McCormack talked about how awesome it was to go on location in Paris, why he thought they’d just be shooting on green screen when he was first told about the idea, shooting in some of the most famous location in the country, what the location adds to the romance of the story, how Pierce thrives on chaos, what it was like to direct an episode, and the experience of working with Peter Coyote, who plays Pierce’s ailing father throughout the season. Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
