Paul Schulze 
In our second Behind the Scenes with "Nurse Jackie" post, Paul Schulze, who plays pharmacist Eddie Walzer, who is also Nurse Jackie's lover, tells us about some of his favorite moments.

What has been your favorite scene to shoot?
“My drunken confrontation with Jackie in the ER after discovering her ‘other’ life.”

What is your favorite off-camera moment on set?
“Cracking up with Edie and executive producers Richie Jackson, Linda Wallem and Liz Brixius in video village [the spot where all the writers and producers watch the shoot on monitors] this past fall.”

In what way do you hope your character grows?
“I hope my character grows taller, thinner and hairier as time goes by ..."

Tell us something about one of your cast mates that most people don’t know.
“Lenny [Jacobson, who plays Lenny, the EMT] thinks of me as his big-mouthed uncle.”

What do you hope audiences get from “Nurse Jackie”?
“I hope audiences get entertained and recognize that we all have so much in common, especially secrets. That we can begin by tolerating each other and then letting ourselves truly embrace each other.”
