I crave working on those small independent movies because I love going to see those myself.
I want to do work that has a message and casts a light over an area that's dark. But I'm fun and jovial, too.
A big part of what I wanted to do with this character was go from when I was a boy and try and develop into a man, really try and play him as a man who is on this search, on a journey of personal, spiritual, political, social discovery.
As a child, I was always drawn to heroic characters. I decided I wanted to act when I realised that Superman and all those gangsters and Indians were just real people in costume.
