AP: You're building your acting reel. What's that been like?
Groban: It's great to let out that other side because the music side is so serious that to be able to have an outlet for your funny bone, for your weird, oddball side is just cathartic for me. And it's actually what I started doing. I was in improv theater before I even started singing, so the fact that the comedy side is starting to work its way around in my world strangely, considering the kind of music I sing, I'll take it. It's wonderful.
AP: Do you want to play a serious role?
Groban: Yeah, sure. I think I'm probably better at comedy, but comedians take serious roles sometimes and it actually goes really well. ... I'd love to play a bad guy actually. I'd love to dive in and play some kind of French assassin, like "The Professional."
