5 YEARS AGO ”I was shooting The Siege in New York. I was pretty starstruck seeing Denzel Washington. As an FBI agent, I didn’t have any lines, except for like, ‘We’re checking that, sir.’ Showing up on time — that was basically the biggest responsibility.”

NOW ”I was living in London for seven or eight months on and off, shooting Keen Eddie. I started watching football — their football. I started calling it football. It’s soccer, you know? I was watching games and getting to know players, and I’m a fan now.”

5 YEARS FROM NOW ”I want to have a black belt in kung fu. I only have a green belt now. I want to be a close personal friend of Beck, Eminem, Owen Wilson, and Sheryl Crow. I don’t even know if they know each other. Maybe I can introduce them.”
