I think a lot of Magnum was me.
It is scary for an actor when you get hired as a lead. No matter what the plot is, it is your job to do something interesting enough to make them want to get inside the lead character's head.
I think there have been more movies in the Western genre than any other. I grew up watching those movies.
I never try to pander to an audience, and I'm really not concerned with my image. I'm far more interested in stretching my abilities as an actor.
I just really want people to see this movie and I hope they like it, because to me Monte Walsh (2003) probably reflects my sensibilities more than any other I've done in the Western genre. I'm really proud of it and I think it may be the best role I've ever had.
Unless you treat failure as part of the journey, you're never going to get anywhere.
I quit 'Magnum' to have a family. It took a long time to get off the train, but I try very hard to have balance, and this ranch has helped me do that.
