#Quote
1 [About Braveheart (1995)] It's an epic film. It really is life and death, and... darkness and the light.
2 [When asked his opinion of his character in "Saw"] Yeah, well, I think it's kind of set up in the film that even though you think he could save them, even when he tries to, it's set-up so it all seems a little too late. That was something we were discussing was how long do you wait and pause? Because if you've done that in one room, you know you can't do that in the next because otherwise it's going to be too late for that person. So we were having lots of debates. And also because each scene, you can't play them all the same. You've got to build in each one. So did I like him? I don't think he liked himself very much.
3 [About his role as Robert the Bruce] It's an interesting character because he's kind of, a bit of a lost soul. He wavers. He's constantly drawn to the darker aspects of compromise and keeping the wealth and preserving the castles, the lands which he has, and all the wealthy people in the county.
