I’m blessed to have cool roles in these big movies.
I need to react to a script, to feel strongly about it in some way. And I need it to be a complex character for sure. And also, I think a lot about what kind of audience there is for the film, what they’re looking for and ways to connect with them in the playing of a character.
People love to yammer on about things that aren’t real.
Music I do just for me.
I’m not violent.
I’m attracted to those kinds of roles that could be good or could be bad, and you just don’t know.
I’ll always build houses.
I was an athlete when I was growing up.
I only scream and scratch when something’s only ‘really good’ or ‘good’, I want to be great, or let’s go home.
I want to not do anything I’ve done before. That can come in any form.
I feel connected to that idea of wanting to belong to something, to have a sense of purpose as a man on the planet.
In the ‘Hurt Locker’ there’s a lot of me in there, a sense of humor, a man of few words and a lot of action.
Fear is just not a part of my life – so much so that if it’s involved in somebody else’s life and they’re close to me, I won’t be around them.
I want my personal life to be personal.
I like repressed characters. That gives me a lot of freedom to make a lot of different choices through subtleties.
