I'm in awe of people like Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard; they're great musicians and people. But I'm most starstruck by people in the small town where I live. Especially single dads, like me, who are working five times as hard to raise their kids.
I don't really go out much at all. But there are times when I'm like, 'I gotta get out.' Then we go to Vegas, and we'll gamble.
During the Cold War, we lived in coded times when it wasn't easy and there were shades of grey and ambiguity.
John le Carre
Yes, I remember the barbed wire and the guard towers and the machine guns, but they became part of my normal landscape. What would be abnormal in normal times became my normality in camp.
I think a badly crafted, great idea for a new film with a ton of spelling mistakes is just 100 times better than a well-crafted stale script.

Sugar Ray Leonard

I have a way of filming things and staging them and designing sets. There were times when I thought I should change my approach, but in fact, this is what I like to do.
