Before work when you look in the mirror, or even before looking in the mirror you do feel different. A part of the character is more expressive in you.

Trivia:

Was director Martin Campbell's choice for the role of James Bond in Casino Royale (2006), but he was outvoted by the producers who felt he was too young for the role. The role went to Daniel Craig. See more »
