#Quote
1On Chuck & Buck: "The original nugget came from a scene early in the film where my character Buck grabs Chuck's balls. I thought it would be a real uncomfortable thing to start a movie off with a scene of a guy grabbing another guy's dick. Totally unrepentantly. Not like in your typical Dumb-and-Dumber-type comedy or an earnest gay movie. From that idea I started to ask myself, "What situation would lead to this?"
