    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.

“To me, there was a deep confusion that still persists,” Morris told the crowd, “and I don’t know what you can do to disabuse people of this notion. I suppose you could hit them in the head with a large piece of lumber, but I’m not sure that would do the trick. It’s a simple rule: Style doesn’t guarantee truth. Truth is something far more elusive. Truth is a quest; you pursue truth. You go after it, you try to uncover it, because we all know that we live in a sea of falsehood. I mean, there shouldn’t be any tool that should be unavailable to you in the pursuit of truth.”

“I hang out with highbrow people and I have on certain occasions earned my living with non-highbrow people. I don’t know what I am. A highbrow wannabe? I’m a groupie of intellectuals. I try to hang around them but maybe I am a clown who enjoys the company of intellectuals. Or maybe I’m a semi-intellectual who likes to hang out with clowns.”
