1 I don't want to sit and cry for an hour in a movie. I'd rather have an action or a comedy.
2 I would like any type of character that I could be creative with and totally delve into.
3 I'd have to say the whole experience in making The Neverending Story. I had an incredible time.
4 I'd rather do a lot of movies than a TV series and do a lot of different roles than be stuck in one TV thing.
5 I'm a martial arts buff, so anything martial arts.
6 I'm an action fanatic.
7 I'm not a huge drama person. I think I liked them more when I was younger.
8 It's a little weird exchanging pictures for money. You know what I mean. It makes me a little uncomfortable.
9 Well, TV series tie you up. You can't do films while you're doing a TV series.
10 With Harley, you build it, then you've got to take it apart.
11 We had a showing of Battlestar in LA last week. I walked out the door and there were 50 people. I signed a ton of autographs. Other actors walked away without signing. These are the fans. I guess it depends. on who you are.
