You watch a hockey game and the hand-eye coordination and the speed is really miraculous how those guys track the puck alone just following it with their eyes.
The funny thing is that I write and I act a lot about being Jewish but I don’t really think about it as a regular person.
Part of what I enjoy about the theatre and acting is that sense of history.
I was a writer. I just wasn’t a very good one. I was lucky enough to have a playwriting teacher who told me that I’d be a better actor than I would a playwright.
I really don’t think there is anybody in the business with better eyes than Elijah Wood.
I manage to hide in my movies.
I get very nervous around famous people and I get nervous around beautiful women.
My publicist told me not to talk about politics but yes I think we have a president who stole the election.
You should never ask actors about politics.
Film is such a bizarre vehicle for acting. It’s such a bizarre experience. I don’t think you ever really get familiar with it. If you do get familiar with it you’re probably not that good anymore.
I think it’s really really important to mix it up as an actor to try to get as much kind of varied experience as you can not only for your own personal growth as an actor but for the audience to keep them guessing about what you’re going to do.
That’s one of the benefits of working on big budget films. You work with people who have a lot of experience and you get to learn a lot.
