Rewind: Scott Caan Gets Sentimental

Scott Caan is well-known for playing tough-guy roles in movies like Gone in Sixty Seconds and on the television series Hawaii Five-0, but for this Pop Culture Rewind we take you back to a time when Caan was feeling rather sentimental.
On this date in 2007, Caan was being interviewed with co-star Eddie Jemison for Ocean's Thirteen and had some kind words to say about his cast mates, with whom he might be on set with for the final time after three Ocean's films.
"You make good friends and then everybody's got their lives to go back to afterwards," he said of his relationship with his co-stars. "It's like the end of the baseball season. It's kind of sad, and now there might not be another 'season' after this one...When I see these guys I haven't seen in a long time...it's a very warm feeling."
Caan, who appears to unleash a more relaxed and pensive side to him, played along when the interview asked him what in a film causes him to cry. "Love makes me cry," he agreed when suggested by Jemison.
However, the then-30-year-old actor balances out his sentimental feelings when he discusses the later stages of filming. "We all see each other for the first time when we haven't in so long, it's like 'Yes!' and then by the end I'm just like, 'Ugh, I'm done!'
"Turk Malloy," Caan's character in the franchise, specializes in the ability to adapt to any character for the crew's jobs so it's unclear whether he had snapped out of character yet. "To redeem my sensitivity from the beginning of the interview," he cites as the basis for his comments.
