You ain't ever gonna get an Academy Award for doing Crank (2006) and you certainly won't for doing all the other movies I've done.
If you got a good imagination, a lot of confidence and you kind of know what you are saying, then you might be able to do it. I know a lot of colorful characters at home that would make great actors.
I endured many weeks of it, but I had a big background in martial arts and fighting as a kid, so kind of all the problems got brushed away and I was ready.
Look at someone like Edward Norton. A truly phenomenal actor. He's definitely went to school and trained.
I've come from nowhere, and I'm not shy to go back.
Without doing the big blockbusters, I wouldn't be able to find the money to go after little projects that I want to do.
It's something I never dreamed I'd be doing, making movies.
It's street theater. You have to make it entertaining so people don't get bored and walk away.
Action comedy, if you can get it right, it is, for me, a particularly brilliant genre. It really is.
