I went nuts. I've been smoking since I was in junior high school. I did a couple of episodes of The West Wing (1999) two years ago and I was in the middle of one of these psycho things and turned around and smacked the stage door as hard as I could and my fist immediately swelled up. Thank God I didn't break anything, but that was the last episode I had of nicotine withdrawal. Hide

I'm incapable of watching myself objectively. Unless it's The Big Lebowski. The writing is so goddamned good, you can just enjoy it, go along for the ride like everybody else. Babe Ruth is one of those things I wish I could go back and do over. It's like being in that dream where you're in the subway with no clothes on. Hide

But he was so full of fire. He had such passion for acting. It's nice to meet someone like that. Hide

I started going through their résumé pile, looking at actors, and just kinda made myself at home in my obnoxious way. I think they cast me because I had a baby face and that was a motif of the film.

Because at the end of the night, your feet hurt and you get to count it up and there's a nice feeling when you've gotten tipped well. I know what it's like. My mom lived on tips. Hide

But they measured me two inches shorter than I am. They measured me at six foot instead of six foot two. I was eleven pounds overweight for that height. They told me to lose weight and come back. By the time I was scheduled to come back, the draft was abolished. Hide

It'll be difficult because I live in New Orleans. But I really enjoy doing sitcoms. You've got 22 minutes a week to put on a new play. It keeps me off the street. Hide

People are conditioned to hate you if you're famous or in show business. It's that love-hate thing. They can't wait for you to fail or get pulled over with a hooker or a stripper or a teenage boy with a lot of blow in the car. Hide
