    i liked the earlier chat better …

    this is way too serious interview . would be better to do these outside where he doesn’t look so evil.

    Oh, sanj. Always the ray of sunshine, aren’t you?

    This is a wonderful interview with a wonderful actor. He really lets you get a feel of what it means to be a professional actor :)

    He sounds almost American all the time now, you forget how long he’s been here. His accent at this point is flatter than Aiden Gillen’s much lamented voice on The Wire.

    Great interview. Very open and insightful. Thanks Gary and DP/30 for interviewing a great actor.

You can neither make beautiful, great movies without risk as you can make babies without sex. Risk is part of the artistic process. That’s why I like performance, because performance is walking a high wire.

“Probably the most heralded movie I’ve ever been in was Forrest Gump. While I was sitting on the park bench, I asked Bob, ‘Is anyone going to care about this guy?’ He said, ‘I don’t know Tom. It’s a mine field. It’s a fucking mine field.’ So when it works, you just say, ‘We dodged all the mines.'”
