    When you know youre whoring it hurts. I have kids. I'm not going to run down an actor for doing this.

    There is less pressure as a character actor. It generally means that you will be acting for all of your life, which is my intention. It is not my intention to just be a rich and famous person, that would be pretty boring.

    You read a script and its based on 'Reservoir Dogs' and 'Pulp Fiction', and it goes right in the bin.

    If you meet somebody who's spent any length of time in prison, you don't let your guard down. Ever. And really, that's what that was about-if you open up too much, you're asking to get your teeth kicked in.

    I miss my family, and I like being a tourist when I go back.
