If it wasn`t for the devil, we wouldn`t be here, would we?
I`m a whore. If they have a check and camera and a script and stuff for me to say, I am mostly there, unless I just can`t take it.
The universe is dynamic. When we are creative, we are the most alive and in touch with it.
If it`s stage, the two most important artists are the actor and the playwright. If it`s film, THE most important person is the director. The director says where the camera goes.
We all have an edge. We all are floating our psyche on top with a great ocean underneath.
I was lucky. I had a lot of really good influences.
There is nothing wrong with horror films. Their existence has definitely had an impact on me. It is important to have scary demons in our world on film. We have them in the world. That is why we are afraid, it is nice to have a visual and to have a confrontation with it.
I am they type of person that once I make a decision, I must execute. Maybe I am a perfectionist in this way.
I am good when there is something central about the character. There is always a human theme I attach myself to. I am really looking for something that is moving or enlightening or something with depth as an actor. I look for these kinds of roles.
I`m a whore. If they have a check and camera and a script and stuff for me to say, I am mostly there, unless I just can`t take it. No, really, I do like to work. It just depends on whether there is a whole lot of stuff for me to choose from, because if there is I am choosy. If there`s not a lot of work, then I try to find some redeeming value in the parts being offered. If it is awful, then, of course, I can`t do it. But I have to say, I am pretty lucky in that there are usually things coming in. That said, sometimes it is slow.
I prefer film to the stage. I always like the rehearsal better than I like performing.
I`m formally trained, I don`t know what classically trained really means. I`ve worked with Sanford Meisner. And I`ve worked at Circle Rep with Marshall W. Mason and Lanford Wilson and some really good people. I was lucky. I had a lot of really good influences.
(on if he prefers to play edgier twisted characters) Well, I`ve been cast as them . . . and I like to work, so I take those roles. You know, you try to be diverse, and try to have fun and round things out.
