Memorable quotesEdit

"Well, I’ve always been interested in people who are fundamentally different on a psychological level. That is the fun of being an actor, to really explore the imaginative world. The farther you get away from your day-to-day life, the more fun it is. It wasn’t something I wanted to turn down, because it wasn’t the typical rapist or mean, run-of-the-mill bad guy. He was a bad guy who had a very specific disorder. The specificity was more interesting to me. He wasn’t your garden variety thug."
