What made you want to become an actor?
I was acting as a child. I was on stage and I really, really loved that, but for a different reason than now. When I first started on stage, it was just a way to channel my energy. Then as a young teenager at thirteen, fourteen years old, I started seeing movies like Goodfellas, Pulp Fiction, Scarface, Apocalypse Now, Dr. Strangelove. All these great films with these great actors and it’s something that I wanted to do. I just wanted to do what they were doing: the Pacinos, the De Niros and the Jack Nicholsons, the Dustin Hoffmans. It just appealed to me. I just wanted to do it.

What was your biggest fear?
I didn’t have a lot of fears. Not being able to perform well, maybe. I was quite fearless as a young man. I think that’s why I succeeded is because I was so fearless. I would go into a room, an audition or whatever, with no care in the world. I think that’s why I was able to be successful early: the lack of fear. Which has changed so much! If I could go back to the way I was as a young man, as a teenager, with no cares, no family, no rent, no nothing like that, and walk into some of the rooms with that feeling? I’m sure I would do a lot better in there! It’s crazy. I did that movie called Idle Hands and I had to audition for the studio. I walked into the studio and threw myself over a table and into a wall, using my hand like it was possessed. To think about doing that now in one of those rooms is ludicrous. It’s insane. There’s more!
