Personal Quote:

I approach every character the same. There's an instinct for each role. Certainly it's not as easy to get under the skin of someone like Mr. Fantastic because it's all so technical. It's all about moments, moments of action coupled with a lot of scientific jargon. The trick for me was not to make him too much of a nerd, to show that he does have the potential to be Mr. Fantastic. See more »
