The difference between a hero and a coward is one step sideways.
Dysfunctional families have sired a number of pretty good actors.

I'm disappointed that success hasn't been a Himalayan feeling.
I don't like to talk about myself that much.
I'm not a sentimental guy.
I went in the Marines when I was 16. I spent four and a half years in the Marines and then came right to New York to be an actor. And then seven years later, I got my first job.
