  8. And what I like about it is it makes me happy and I think it makes a lot of people happy to go to the movies and to not think about the problems of the day or the problems of tomorrow or the yesterday and just go on for the ride and have the fun of losing oneself in a fantasy.
  9. As a child, these colourful superheroes that could fly, or were horrifying like Ghost Rider and the Hulk, with this tremendous rage or these supernatural powers, provided an escape for me from my mundane existence, from my lack of friends or my inability to communicate well with people.

  12. At a young age, I was interested in comic books, which was really how I learnt to read. The name Cage came from a comic book character called Power Man.

  32. How do you say one actor is better than another actor? You can definitely say that in the Olympics if it’s the same race and someone wins the race.

  35. I always say, “Well if you think it’s over the top, then tell me where the top is first. I don’t think anyone can, but if you can tell me where the top is, then I’ll tell you whether or not I’m over it.

  56. I generally enjoy the rehearsal process because that’s where you can share your ideas, get your thoughts and feelings out and see whether or not they’re going to land, whether or not people are going to agree with them, particularly the director. So you can sort out in that process any elements that need to be sorted out before you’re on the set, and of course that saves time and it also makes everyone more comfortable working together.
  57. I got a little tired of movies where I had to shoot people. I got to thinking about the power of film and what that power is. The power is in fact that it really can change people’s minds.
  58. I guess it would fall into the stalker category more or less. I was being stalked by a mime – silent but maybe deadly. Somehow, this mime would appear on the set of Bringing Out the Dead and start doing strange things. I have no idea how it got past security. Finally, the producers took some action and I haven’t seen the mime since. But it was definitely unsettling.

  62. I have eclectic tastes in the movies I want to do.
  63. I haven’t isolated myself. I am not living on a yacht somewhere. I am not tucked away or behind a gate somewhere. I am not flying on a private plane. I am going to the airport, I am with people, some of the interactions are good, some of them are not so good, but it keeps me in touch with being, you know, part of society.
  64. I haven’t made anything I don’t believe in. I’ve always started a movie with a song in my heart, and even when I’m a little unclear about it, something magical happens and it comes into focus in a way that I’m feeling good about.
  65. I hit the ground running, without a lot of training, so I had to do whatever I could do to survive as a professional, and if that meant being that character 24/7 and acting out, I was going to do that. I lived those characters, I brought them home with me.
  66. I invite the entire spectrum, shall we call it, of feeling. Because that is my greatest resource as a film actor. I need to be able to feel everything, which is why I refuse to go on any kind of medication. Not that I need to! But my point is, I wouldn’t even explore that, because it would get in the way of my instrument.
  67. I knew I wanted to be an actor when I was very young. I guess I was about 6 years old at the time, and I was fascinated by television. I started having waking fantasies where I was in a movie and there were crane shots of me during a scene.
  68. I know there’s been a lot that’s been said about animated voice work, as though it’s ‘you can do this in your jeans and there’s no camera and no pressure there. It’s no big deal. It’s easy.’ The truth is, it’s really a great test: how deep is your ability is to access your imagination?
  69. I know what it’s like to meet someone you admire and have them be a complete jerk.
  70. I like both Blu-ray and DVD, but Blu-ray gives you more options.
  71. I like fantasy. I like horror, science fiction because I can get avant-garde with those performances in those movies.
  72. I like movies where you feel like you’re going into another world, and no matter how many times you watch it, you’re gonna see something new in that world. That level of detail really inspires me.
  73. I like to work with young people because young people haven’t had their dreams kicked out of them yet. They’re full of confidence and imagination and vision and when they score, that all get’s empowered.
  74. I love all animals. I have a fascination with fish, birds, whales – sentient life – insects, reptiles.
  75. I loved ‘Fantasia’ as a kid because it filled me with wonder, enchantment and awe. It was my first real introduction into classical music. It was totally inspiring to me.
  76. I may be alone in this, but I do sense the power of film, in that movies have the ability to literally change people’s minds. That’s pretty powerful stuff when you consider that.
  77. I mean, I’ve acted professionally since I was 16.
  78. I never studied dance, but if you look at ‘Wild At Heart,’ my mother saw that movie and said, ‘You are a dancer. Look at how you’re moving: all that strange energy is like modern dance.’
  79. I see myself as a student. I would never call myself a master or a maestro. If you take the path of the student, that means that you have to try a little bit of everything in the hopes that you’re going to learn something or strike some kind of new note or new sound or new expression in the process. I’m not going for grades. I’m going for an education. That means I’m going to continue experimenting and trying new things to try to evolve and learn.
  80. I think a good movie is a good movie whether that falls into a genre or not.

  83. I think I’ve become more relaxed throughout my career. I don’t feel the need to jump up and down and make a big noise to get people to pay attention to me. I don’t need to do punk rock gestures or eat a cockroach or do something weird to say I exist.
  84. I think I’ve spent more time in front of a camera than off camera. That’s just the way it is.
  85. I think it’s no secret that I’ve tried to take chances in my career and also in my life, and I believe to not live in fear.
  86. I think that ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance’ was mentally taxing, if only because I had to go to a Christmas party shortly after I had wrapped photography in Romania at two in the morning as the Ghost Rider. The invitation had a Christmas ornament on it with Ghost Rider’s face on it as a tree.
  87. I think that if you go about making movies to win Oscars, you’re really going about it the wrong way.
  88. I think that movies can help guide us through those experiences the problems that are happening in our daily lives, the stresses between countries, the economy and global warming. I think all art tries to grapple with, redefine, come to terms with, express what’s happening now when it’s working. You can be entertained, but you can also be stimulated to think about things.
  89. I think that the best characters are the ones who both manage to be attractive and repulsive at the same time.
  90. I think the paparazzi might have chased me out of Los Angeles.

  93. I try to do as many stunts as they’ll let me do. I think it’s important for an audience to feel that the actor’s really doing it.
  94. I try to make two movies a year. To me, that’s not too much. On top of that, I like to work.

  96. I want people to discover my movies, and however they choose to receive it is their business.
  97. I want to always find new ways of reinventing myself.
  98. I want to make all kinds of movies. I do want to make big movies that are a lot of fun to go to, but I also want to make movies that are going to stimulate some thought and maybe raise some awareness.
  99. I want to take his face… off. Eyes, nose, skin, teeth. It’s coming off.

  101. I was always shocked when I went to the doctor’s office and they did my X-ray and didn’t find that I had eight more ribs than I should have or that my blood was the color green.
  102. I was thinking about being more global in my work, which means trying more foreign countries and working with foreign filmmakers, hoping they would give me a new take on my work, a new point of view, reinvent me in some way.
  103. I wasn’t any good at romnace. I was a total nerd. My thing is, I was just too romantic. I was the romantic goofball. I wasn’t cynical enough or harsh enough. I cared too much, so I always made a fool out of myself.
  104. I will promise you that if I can give you two good scenes — which is what I always try to do in every movie — then I feel like I’m doing my job.
  105. I would definitely return to Austria. They were all good experiences for me, but definitely Austria because there were some ancient Celtic, sacred sites that were in the forest that were quite beautiful.

  108. I would love to work with Tim Burton. I think we would be very good together.
  109. I’ll speak for myself, but there’s a lot of humor to be found in sarcasm and darkness. You talk to any paramedic, they survive by developing a pretty off-kilter sense of humor.
  110. I’m always curious about what happens when we die. And I’d like to think that somehow the spirit goes on. I’d rather not think that it’s just about this.
  111. I’m an enormous admirer of Christopher Lee. He’s somebody, along with Vincent Price, who I celebrate, and I wanted my movies to show that celebration and that honoring of these great film stars that were unafraid to go into horror and Grand Guignol and the macabre.
  112. I’m at the point now where I know I’m doing something right when a movie gets mixed reviews, because then I’m not in the box. I don’t want to make it too easy for people and I don’t want to make it too easy for myself. I want to try something unusual.
  113. I’m going to steal the Declaration of Independence.
  114. I’m not a trained actor. I’m someone who is autodidactic and learned on my own.

  120. I’m the first to admit that I like going to, or my memories at least of going to Clint Eastwood movies or Charles Bronson or James Bond.

  126. I’ve always maintained that I see myself as a student. There’s always something to learn and be challenged by and hopefully grow from.
  127. I’ve gotten pretty good at leaving characters on the set. I go home and try to relax and regroup and be ready for the next day.

  129. I’m going to steal the Declaration of Independence.

  135. If you have people that totally support you and have your back, I feel like you have all the confidence in the world, and you believe that you can do things that most people can’t achieve. I feel that’s really important.
  136. If you have people that totally support you and have your back, I feel like you have all the confidence in the world, and you believe that you can do things that most people can’t achieve. I feel that’s really important.
  137. In the beginning my energy and passion for acting came from an almost punk rock need to express a lot of anger wherever that may have come from. As I got older, it became or is coming more from a place of wanting to use the craft to help others in some way, to hold a mirror up to the situations that we’re going through, to actually be more cautious about the way that I use the power of film and to see if there’s anything that I can do in the performances that will resonate in the public a similar string that’s on people’s minds and is on my mind. That way we have that relationship.
  138. In this day and age, where you have a lot of comic book movies made every day, and most of them are really good boys, it’s important to have a couple bad boys out there, too.
  139. It may come as a surprise to people, but I’m actually quite boring and normal. What do I do? I read books. I drive my kid to school. I have lunch with my wife. I pick my kid up from school. I go home.
  140. It’s a family that’s loaded with grudges and passion. We come from a long line of robbers and highwaymen in Italy, you know. Killers, even.
  141. It’s amazing marrying someone who wants nothing to do with Hollywood.

  144. Knowing is one of those movies where you’re going to get the spectacle, and you’re going to have the entertainment in the grand science fiction tradition. But also, it will perhaps stimulate some discussion to help you sort out on your own where you might choose to go in terms of your own needs. Now, I say that without preaching.
  145. Look, I happen to still like really dark, dramatic, fractured characters.
  146. Mel Blanc is a hero because of what he could do with his voice for all the Looney Tunes, the Warner Brothers cartoons, to be the voice of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Porky Pig. To me, he’s a great actor.
  147. Mike Myers as Austin Powers makes me laugh – that was genius – and Daffy Duck makes me laugh, but I like odd behavior. I don’t like hip dialogue and one-liners and all that sort of cool, sophomoric comedy. It’s just not for me.
  148. More than ever, movies reveal themselves as healing, as helpful, as encouraging, as escapist – anything that makes someone get through their day in these times. It’s the best form of entertainment, and it’s still arguably the most inexpensive form of entertainment.
  149. Most of my favourite moments in film have been when I’ve had an opportunity to say something from scratch, something original, whether I jotted down a few lines or it came out in improvisation.
  150. Movies work, in my opinion, on the best level when they’re more enigmatic, when we don’t say it’s this or that and where it raises more questions than answers.
  151. My definition of a father is someone who empowers their children.
  152. My father once said, ‘If you’re in the desert and you’re dying of thirst, are you going to drink a glass of blood or are you going to drink a glass of water?’ I think what he was trying to say, interesting coming from my blood father, is sometimes there are people in your family that can be toxic.
  153. My father used to say to me, “It doesn’t matter what the profession is, but if they’re the best in their field, it will always be fascinating to watch.” And I said, “Really, dad? Even like someone who makes pencils?” “Even someone who makes pencils, it will be fascinating to watch.””
  154. My father was always getting excited about something. It’s genetically inside me somewhere.
  155. My house is basically a trailer. I live a circus lifestyle. I’m always moving. It’s not always easy for people that live with me, but that’s the path I chose.
  156. My mother was a dancer, so I like to use the body as part of the instrument of acting.
  157. Nobody wants to watch perfection.
  158. Often you hear stories about never working with children. I disagree because children still have that residual magical thinking. They haven’t had their imagination knocked out of them by turning into adults and life experiences.
  159. One day, one of my dreams is to someday get to do Nemo in ‘20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.’
  160. One of my goals is to have a base near mainland China. I think Hong Kong would be a good match for me. I like being in Hong Kong.

  162. One of the pluses of getting older is you set some limits.
  163. One of the things that’s interesting to me is I find things like caffeine and stunts actually relax me. When they’re putting a bit of gel on my arm and lighting me on fire, or when I’m about to go into a high-speed car chase or rev a motorcycle up pretty fast, I find everything else around me slows down.
  164. Passion is very important to me. If you stop enjoying things, you’ve got to look at it, because it can lead to all kinds of depressing scenarios.
  165. People are losing jobs, people need to be entertained, and I want to make movies that parents and children can look forward to seeing, that can become a kind of family ritual.
  166. People often say that you should never work with child actors. I think that’s all wrong. Children have not had the imagination kicked out of them by life experience and adulthood. So, they still are very much alive with that kind of magical thinking which enables an actor to believe they’re in these circumstances and make them real to you.
  167. Personally, my interests are ancient history and ancient civilizations. In my own life, I’d like to go to places like Easter Island.
  168. Picasso said, ‘Art is a lie that tells the truth.’ What if you just want to tell the truth and not lie about it?
  169. Remakes are always a challenge and they always are sitting ducks.
  170. Science fiction is a way that I can go into the abstract, go into the imagination, and audiences are still willing to go along for the ride.
  171. Shock is still fun. I won’t ever shut the door on it.
  172. Snakes are sometimes perceived as evil, but they are also perceived as medicine. If you look at an ambulance, there’s the two snakes on the side of the ambulance. The caduceus, or the staff of Hermes, there’s the two snakes going up it, which means that the venom can also be healing.
  173. Some things are true whether you believe in them or not.
  174. Someone like Vincent Price or somebody like Christopher Lee, they never won an award, and it doesn’t matter. They’re cool.
  175. Sometimes people think I’m wearing a wig when I’m not wearing a wig, and then sometimes they think I’m not wearing a wig when I am wearing a wig.
  176. That’s funny. My name’s Roger. Two Rogers don’t make a right.
  177. The best characters are the ones that somehow manage to be both attractive and repulsive at the same time. If you do that, you’re at the center of the universe – if you can find characters who are more ambiguous and can raise more questions than answers.
  178. The biggest problem for me was feeling that as I became more balanced and a better man that I wouldn’t have the fire to create from.
  179. The end of the world is on people’s minds. We have the power to destroy or save ourselves, but the question is what do you do with that responsibility.
  180. The fact that ‘Astro Boy’ appealed to me as a boy in America was proof that the story and character transcend cultural stereotypes.
  181. The movies I cannot go without and that I watch annually are ‘A Clockwork Orange,’ ‘Scarface’ and ‘Fantasia.’
  182. The only reason why I tend to pass on a movie is either I don’t think I’m right for the material and can’t play it honestly, or because of time constraints with personal things in my life.
  183. There is a misperception, if you will, in critical response or even in Hollywood, that I can only do exaggerated characters. Or what they would call over-the-top performances. Well, this is completely false.
  184. There were two movies that asked me to go to Australia or New Zealand for long periods of time. One was ‘Lord of the Rings’ and one was ‘The Matrix.’ But I was actively involved at that time raising my family, and I couldn’t really take that time out.
  185. There’s a fine line between the Method actor and the schizophrenic.
