(2010) The great thing about acting is that, until you're dead, you can do it. There are aspects to it that as time goes on you hope you get better at, and there are a lot of things that I'm excited to explore.
(2010) I'm really proud of a movie that not a lot of people have seen - Love and a .45 (1994) - that was one of the first things I did. I'd say that I'm super proud of only four or five things I've done, but mostly I'd like to be remembered as a really good actor who people enjoyed watching.
