Zach Braff: You know America, here’s a little interesting tidbit you probably don’t know about me. My middle name is Israel. We’re both named after countries.

America Ferrera: Wow, that is interesting.

Braff: So do you think that you have any traits in common with the country that is your namesake?

Ferrera: Well, you know, I mean I guess I’m a free-spirited person and America’s supposedly the ‘land of the free,’ right?

Braff: Well, I guess...
Ferrera: Or at least we will be in 2008.
