Suddenly playing the charming bad guy was my thing.
What I really am is a homebody. I was a homebody even before I had a family. My days are filled with home stuff.
Acting is playing pretend, playing a children's game at an adult level, but with children's rules. It's fun to play bad guys. I've never been in a fight in my life, so it's fun to play something that's different.
In college, I started out doing musicals and Shakespeare.
I love acting. It's an interesting challenge to make something that doesn't exist appear like it's happening, and to do it in a real way.
I know when I go to a movie I want to experience something, whether to laugh, to cry, to feel bad.
There's not a day that goes by that I don't hear somebody mention Goodfellas (1990), unless I stay home all night. It's defined who I am, in a sense.
