On the typecasting in Hollywood:
“Being a physical presence will rule you out of a lot of roles. I couldn”t have done “Ferris Bueller”s Day Off” with that physical presence. But I like it as part of me; It”s part of what I represent, and I think if [actor] Humphrey Bogart were around today he”d be a lot bigger.”
On the pressures of being a male actor:
“Hollywood is more concerned about its male actors being in shape than its female actors.”
On working on dangerous sets:
“There were scenes that were so dangerous that if the studio knew I was doing them they”d have set down production on “Fast 6.” There were days when I came home and looked at my kids and hugged them and thought, “Is it enough that it”s for the sake of art that I risk my life like that””
