When I’m doing a film, I love getting together after work with my costars. But we get back to L.A. and I’m like, ‘I don’t want to go to a club with you, dude. I mean, I think you’re rad, and if you want to come play Scrabble with me, that’s amazing.’
There are so many different people that I’ve emulated vocally. In the rock world – Sebastian Bach, Vince Neil, Freddie Mercury, Robert Plant. They all had amazing vocal talent.
The last real movie stars were probably Redford and Newman. And things were different then. There wasn’t this amazing amount of magazines and information about them.
I just want to be a part of great stories, whether I’m part of an amazing ensemble cast or I’m leading it or the antagonist or whatever.
In football you always get judged on your last game. Whoever you are, or how amazing you are, it’s the last game that everyone has seen.
It’s been such a deep and amazing journey for me, getting close to John Keats, and also I love Shelley and Byron. I mean, the thing about the Romantic poets is that they’ve got the epitaph of romantic posthumously. They all died really young, and Keats, the youngest of them all.
I love vintage shopping, I think it’s really fun. And I love the feeling of finding the most amazing piece for less.
I mean, there are some amazing storytelling being done on the small screen right now. That’s what so cool about being in television right now. Studios, networks are starting to throw more resources, better writers, more production values… and to be part of that is awesome.
We are on the precipice of a crisis, a Constitutional crisis. The checks and balances, which have been at the core of this Republic, are about to be evaporated by the nuclear option. The checks and balances that say if you get 51% of the vote, you don’t get your way 100% of the time. It is amazing, it’s almost a temper tantrum.
You have to wait for a big star to come in and generate interest on a project, and now that has become me, which is an amazing blessing.
