#Quote
1It's not any desire on my part to start playing dads, but it's a convention of drama. If you don't get the parts of young people going out to nightclubs, you have to play their fathers.
2On moving to L.A.: I went to film a TV series (Luck with Dustin Hoffman, Dennis Farina and Nick Nolte) for HBO. Three months turned into nine months. Nine months turned into a year, then 18 months and so on and so on. One part led on to another. My wife and kids were never seeing me, so they moved over, too. Now they are in school over here and we've got a house in Santa Monica.
3Most good roles are written for young men. We are fixated on youth. So however much people say there is nothing wrong with being bald, the reality is once the hair is gone, you might not get the parts.
4It's one of those things where you turn round and say 'I've moved to LA by accident. It was a happy accident, though. Santa Monica isn't bad - I can get Heinz beans and Cadbury's chocolate and PG Tips tea. You can get proper brown sauce in the shop round the corner. It's not like America and it doesn't feel too showbiz. I did see Warren Beatty the other day doing his shopping. I was thinking 'he's getting on a bit' but then I realized that he had more hair than me - and he's in his 70s.
5I play the town taxidermist. Norman starts coming over to see my character's daughter, but he becomes fascinated by preserving dead animals. In one episode his dog dies, so I teach him how to preserve it. He becomes obsessed with taxidermy.
6I just want to be rich and famous.
7That's what I like about Neil Jordan's films: everyone is better at what they do than you are.
8We tend to think about fascism in terms of the Second World War.
9Even before my audition, there were several pages missing from my script because those bits were so unbelievably secret not even I was allowed to see them.
10I've only used my own voice about four times on film.
11Everyone should be good at what they do.
12Not being able to work would make me very unhappy.
13I don't know how to construct a career that'll make me famous. Except maybe get my ears pinned back, get my teeth done, and go to America. But then I'll be competing with billions of actors who haven't got false teeth, and who are 25.
14I'm not usually attracted to big-budget American films.
15When you get to 15 and most of your teachers are priests, there's bound to be a conflict.
16I was relatively technically adept. I can edit and wire up a light.
17I'm still working, I've got two arms, two legs, two gorgeous kids, a lovely wife. Fifteen years ago, I was homeless. So when you think about it, I'm lucky.
18You learn more doing than doing training.
19I'm belligerent rather than ambitious.
20My philosophy was, if I just do good work, someone will like it enough to employ me. It never made me famous. And I'm way, way too old now, mate. That boat's sailed.
21Well, put it like this, if you're not a kid, you're a wizard.
22I just wanna build momentum again. Keeping yourself in work is one thing, keeping yourself in good work's another. But if it doesn't work out, so be it. As the Taoists say, Learn to accept that which you cannot change.
23I need something to do when I'm not working, or I crawl up the walls. So I've just taken up kung fu. I was looking for some kind of calming, relaxing activity. I tried yoga, but it wasn't really me.
24There's a statistical theory that if you gave a million monkeys typewriters and set them to work, they'd eventually come up with the complete works of Shakespeare. Thanks to the Internet, we now know this isn't true.
25I hate auditions - when I'm doing them, I can't wait to get out the bleeding door.
