I'm a chubby middle-aged white guy with short hair. I think that's it, really. I kind of have a look. Right now, I'm not fat enough to be the fat friend, but I'm not thin enough to be the leading man, so I look like a cop.
I never really thought of myself as being an action hero or a leading man or any of that. I'm a character actor.
I'm not a leading man.
To play the leading man in a 'Three Stooges' movie, you've got to think funny. Thank God I think funny.
If I want to be a leading man in a film, box office numbers count because producers have invested money. I see no wrong in that process.
An era that I specifically like is sort of late '50s, early '60s. I guess mid '50s, too. I like these types of films that deal with post-WWII America and this more complex leading man that kind of emerges from that.
I started off as an actor thinking that I would be this Romeo, this dashing leading man. It turns out that I'm a character actor.
It's weird but I've never really been the type to have fixations on the leading man actor. I've always been drawn more to the rock star. I love a guy on the microphone commanding an audience.
I think my wife has always been aware, whatever country we have been in, of my dramatic leading man status; a little too dramatic she would probably say.
I understand what my gift is, which is making people laugh, hopefully. It's more on that level. I don't need to be a leading man, I'm fine with that.
