It's a departure for me, ... I can't walk through the airport in Singapore without a little kid hanging on my leg saying, 'George George'
Trying to maintain the energy that came from the cartoons, using that as inspiration, was the biggest challenge I've met so far.
I have so much satisfaction in my life. I have a beautiful wife and the great stimulation of an interesting career. I'm the most happy fellow that I know.
I wanted to have the opportunity to travel to Vietnam and Sydney, and have the chance to work there.
All you have to do is just believe in what's there; then, the audience will, too.
I don't believe that wishing works. I think we get the things we work for.
I was molded, spent my time underneath a lot of goo. And then the bits and pieces were sculpted. It took probably 10 days to create each character after all those camera tests.
I mean, it was a mummy movie. It was a good film independent of its source. It that looks like Lawrence of Arabia on steroids in a lot of ways.
George of the Jungle is a cartoon. He's a guy who swings around on a vine all day. Are you not buying that?
Graham Greene, as I understand it, was quite outspoken in his criticism of American foreign policy.
I believe you have a responsibility to comport yourself in a manner that gives an example to others. As a young man, I prayed for success. Now I pray just to be worthy of it.
I think you have to show homage to creators.
I'm just glad that I have bragging rights to working with Bugs and Daffy.
Saigon is hot, full of atmosphere, activity, and commerce.
The test audience holds a great deal of power in the process of filmmaking in the United States.
I wish I could go home. I've been on the road since May. I wonder if my dogs still remember me.
Burroughs was never really that pleased with the way popular culture and society treated his character. He tried to make a few movies of his own as a result, but they weren't very good.
I'm starting to judge success by the time I have for myself, the time I spend with family and friends. My priorities aren't amending; they're shifting.
I wish the rock 'n' roll scene to be back in.
If you run an Internet search on Vietnam and the war, most of the information you get begins at about 1962. I think this is telling. It is missing the whole period that led up to the reasons the war happened in the first place.
Maybe my caveman ancestors invented the wheel or something. I'm not sure.
I suppose if it has a practical purpose, I appreciate a pat on the back. I suppose it's rewarding, ultimately.
I wish I could have 25,000 years of my personal family history documented in a very powerful computer or a CD-ROM that I could just pop in and my computer would never crash.
I've been grateful enough, smart enough to take the work with Ian McKellen in Gods And Monsters.
What if Shakespeare had had a test audience for Romeo and Juliet or Hamlet?
It's a tale that I believe ultimately speaks of good parenting and what it means to honor one's parents.
Ian McKellen is brilliant with research. I paid really close attention to the sources he goes to. He's a very, very intelligent man.
I guess darkness serves a purpose: to show us that there is redemption through chaos. I believe in that. I think that's the basis of Greek mythology.
I would act whether or not I was paid. I would be involved in ensemble groups. I would have the desire to tell stories.
Most people go, I wish for world peace. But chaos has a place in balancing out the light and the dark in the world. I don't know if I would wish for world peace.
As sophisticated as the technology gets, the less sophisticated you have to become as an actor.
Oh, poor Abraham Lincoln. Well, he tried.
When you throw punches at actors, you stop, you pull it, and it looks like you pulled it. When you throw punches at cartoon characters, they are not there, so you can swing through. It looks like you really decked them.
Elizabeth Hurley and I had a lot of fun together. She's a very beautiful, confident woman.
I always approach comedy roles pretending they aren't funny.
I still don't understand the music industry that much. Everything I learned was from hanging out with rock musicians in studios. I certainly have respect for those who make music their livelihood.
They had a hard time miking me in my loin cloth, I mean, where were they gonna tape it?
I recently watched Peter Brook's Lord of the Flies, and it wasn't a favorite film. Then I saw the one that was made in 1990, which in my opinion didn't match up to the original.
I remember thinking, I want to work for the camera.
If I could take something away from every film I make, it would be that there's something good about having confidence in yourself.
Forget acting. It's all about rock 'n' roll.
Horrible things happen, but were they horrible? No, they were just circumstances of the world.
