Quotes

Certain roles are more challenging than others, but I haven't come across one yet that I can't tackle.

I have a great deal of fun playing Blade. The lifestyle of it, the controlled rebelliousness, is wonderful to me. And it's therapeutic, too. A role like this lets you vent.

I love the idea of the man to man, against one another. I like that. I don't know why.

I didn't go into this business to do action because I'm a classically trained actor. But I'm good at kicking and punching.

I have a whole other side that has yet to be seen on screen.

I never really planned on making action films. It just kind of happened.

I grew up in the Bronx. The Bronx teaches you to survive. It's like, 'Bring it on!'
