He's a kind of a intuitive machinist. I was attracted to the journey Eddie has to take. He is a young man who has to come to terms with what he is actually participating in by creating this new technology. Suddenly, he finds himself involved with the government and big business. The 'back story' is that he grew up in the steel mills working with his father, who was working tending the mill. He is the kind of a guy who had to fix everything, to maintain everything, and [Eddie] grew up around that. His formal education is a little behind his practical education.
