If I've been an architect of my own career in any fashion, one thing that I've attempted to do is not get typecast, in order to be able to play all different kind of characters. I think I've done a pretty good job of that over the years.

I enjoy acting, and I appreciate people who have passion about what they're doing and have a vision about the film they're trying to make.

It's hard to see a film that's been made from a book that you really loved because it's such a different experience.

I like to act with people that know what they're doing.

One of the first things I learned about acting was, the only person you compete against is yourself.
