There comes a point in your life when you realize how quickly time goes by, and how quickly it has gone. Then it really speeds up exponentially. With that, I think you start to put a lot of things into context; you start to see how huge the world is, and really, the universe.
High energy creates more energy, more energy, more energy. It kicks off synapses I guess. It opens up your brain and you think of one thing after another thing after another. You can really open yourself up comedically, which is fun.

Generally, I move in the direction of art.
I come from a background where you don't really talk about yourself much.
I liked 'Robocop' because of the director, and it was an intelligent, big-action studio movie.
