I think everyone who says they don't like watching themselves in movies should stop lying.
People like the Ezekiel speech. I have to say that speech about three times a week to people, just to prove that I still know it.
I was a square for so long and it totally amazes me that people think I am cool.
I don't understand how people live without creating. You know? I don't know how you do one picture a year.
I love comic books and I love anime.
The only thing I've kind of missed is finding a really good western that I want to do, because I watched westerns a lot.
I actually think I have an audience member's sensibility about going to the movies.
I've been fortunate to be in films that are classic, that are going to be around.
