I couldn't say no to jobs and I couldn't say no to drugs. I'd get high from a movie, I'd be somebody else because I didn't particularly like me, so long as I had a script in my hand, I was okay. As soon as the movie was over, I didn't know what to do.


I've never considered myself a leading man, don't look like one, don't want to be one.


I'm a character actor, so I don't take the hit if the movie's bad, the lead does. So, I don't want to be the lead. He takes the hit, I don't.

Blade Runner helped make my career. Everybody was in it. Who knew?


You never know what show is going to change your life.


Since very early in my career, I have always did my own stunt fighting.


Producing is nothing more than bringing all the elements together, connecting people.


I play out negative fantasies for people. I'm the guy people love to hate. And they always remember the bad guy.

I could talk about Blade Runner forever.


Westerns was why I got into the business. I grew up on a small farm in California and all I ever wanted to do was to play gangsters and cowboys in movies.


You know, stand-up comedy is where I pretty much started out.


I never play a villain that I don't have something I can either do or say so the audience sees there is something redeemable about them. In other words, I don't want to do evil for evil's sake. I don't want to do Jason slasher movies. There's no point in that.


Work begets work.
