"There are things I want to do that I can't get - they want someone
else. Often, in the movie business, they need somebody who will
garner box office because they need to pay for the movie. So the people
who are in movies that make a lot of money are the people who most
often get cast in studio pictures. In my career, I've never
been a box office name. Granted, a couple of my movies have made a lot
of money but I'd do other movies which make very little money or
they're not seen that much."
