Personal Quotes (1)

[about why he plays villains so often] It's sure a lot easier than playing nice guys. You have a chance to do something. To play yourself is very difficult. Leading men have so little to work with opposed to the bad guy. To play somebody who is the antithesis of your personality will force you to get lost in the character.
