Personal Quote:

It was very interesting. I read that book and I honestly had no idea what the hell was going on. Then I did the movie because I just wanted to do it.

Trivia:

A jury in Beattyville, Kentucky dismissed a marijuana possession charge against him. He was arrested in 1996 for planting 4 marijuana hemp seeds in rural Kentucky and in his defence he said he was challenging a state law that makes no distinction between marijuana and hemp, even though hemp contains little of the drug found in marijuana and can be used to make a variety of industrial products.
