What I've certainly learned is that whenever I've said anything about real politics, I've come under attack. So it's best simply to play politics on television.
Over a spell of about three years, I played a series of roles that were, for me, all very different, but most of them came out within a six-month period. They all dealt with a kind of dark territory that in some cases had been mined before in movies.
I'm lucky if I find one movie a year that's worth doing, and when I do find one, it usually only takes 20-30 days to shoot.
As the years have gone on, I find one of the dangers of watching dailies... is you fall in love with moments.
