People who get involved with the success of something have to be given at least some share of that success.
People are either enamored with me or wonder if they can take me.
If anything, I want to bring television back up to where it will entertain and engage a gamer.
I'm a director's actor I'm a storyteller's actor.
I want to make smart television.
I mean, I've been in a hundred and fifty films I don't want to just sit around and talk about things.
I had my first play produced when I was 14 it was my way of competing in the neighborhood I grew up in, a sort of tough neighborhood.
I basically was a precocious little kid.
I ended up an actor, did my first professional union gig in 1974, and I've been doing it ever since.
I took acting lessons when I was 19, 20, and I had my writing.
My M.O. over the years is that I make things better, where people give me that freedom.
I'm not a big fan of television I've had a hard time over the years because I think the quality of the writing sort of starts to deteriorate.
When I was in art college, I would be painting, and I would create something on a canvas that was actually quite attractive. But if I got frightened and tried to protect that, that canvas would die.
