#Quote
1 People come up to me and say, 'You are such a great BAD guy.' The fact is that the antagonist in a movie is usually the most fun to play. You can stretch the role and do so much with it. You can be boisterous. You can be insane. You can have a temper. You can do nothing but sit there and give a look and still be the bad guy. It's open to so much creativity. I try to change my physical appearance for every role.
2 It's important for a villain to be as threatening as possible, whether physically, mentally or emotionally ... however you want to do it. If you can combine all three, well that's the ultimate villain.
