On never being awarded with an Oscar:
“I dont think about it too much. It just always has seemed whimsical to me, to think about it. You dont get an Oscar for comedy, and you dont get it for shooting people. You get it for novelty, of being fascinating to watch in some character role. But the “Die Hard” stuff and “Dirty Harry” are all fraught with the same thing that every story is fraught with.”
On pursuing a role on stage:
“Id like to go and do theater. It seems like a more reasonable job, more manageable.”
On a possible career in politics:
“Maybe on a smaller level Something where you can make the town a little better. That idea of trying to help someone and not f***it up.”
On conquering his stutter with acting:
“The Cub Scout years, I had a terrible stutter. But then I did some theater somewhere, probably in high school. And when I memorized words, I didnt stutter, which was just miraculous. That was the beginning of the gradual dispelling of my stutter. I thought I was handicapped. I couldnt talk at all. I still stutter around some people now.”
