Marina Sirtis and Brent Spiners Gag Reel?

Marina Sirtis at Brent Spiner's Paramount Trailer

In an interview taken at the Paramount Studios lot in the early 90's, Brent Spiner (whos really Data the android in Star Trek (TNG) gets rousted by co star Marina Sirtis. Rather innocently "Counsellor Deanna Troi" grabs the scoop nailing Spiner "in the act." Despite the old footage, its fun watching these two fooling around. Troi's betazoid instincts cuts straight to the chase. She tells us, "Brent Spiner, Data the android, possibly the most popular character on the show"[STAR TREK TNG] which I thought was very classy of her.





"Our little Scoop!" - After banging on his trailer door for a while, Sirtis gives Spiner plenty of time. The fun begins when Brent emerges from his trailer stammering "what what????"..... While the rapport between Sirtis and Spiner is genuine. These guys definitely won me over and I'm still wondering, is this interview a "gag" or the real deal?  What do you think?

Marina explains: "I'm here with Movietime, remember?" "Oh yeah, right, right, right, right" stammers a hungover Spiner trying to pull himself together. After a little broadway melodrama Spiner finally agrees to hold up his end of the bargain. So what I wonder happens next? 

Do you think Brent Spiner slept in his trailer during the filming of Star Trek TNG's entire "smash hit" tv show? Whatever Marina's reasons were for filming this epic, I think their performance deserves an oscar for its comedic value.

What say you? Gag Reel or Real deal?

Gag reel. But fun.

It's funny to see them so interactive, I saw them recently at a convention and they all basically ignored each other.

I was so close to my heroes and they were so very angry.

I vote gag real, but that was funny.

Based on that, I can see a whole alternate career that might've happened for Spiner. There are moments he sounds like Edward Norton. I still wish Hollywood had remained interested in him. He's hilarious in Out to Sea.
