You must be the envy of most actors having seemingly bypassed the ‘movies best left ignored’ stage. How did you do that?

Inevitably, I think the people that want to work with me are also the people that I want to work with. I think that can really come through in a meeting. I can’t really sit down in a meeting for some shitty movie and be like, “Wow I really want to be part of this,” and come across as genuine. It’s not until I sit in a room with people that I respect. I’ve been lucky to come across some kindred spirits in that way, and those are the people I get off with. I guess because of that, those are the kind of people I’ve ended up working with.

What is your overall goal? It sounds like you have one, or several.

Well I really just want to continue to challenge myself. And I want to continue to grow as an artist. I never want to stop. Al Pacino for instance, that’s a guy who never stops. He’s always trying to better himself. He’s in this because he’s an actor. He’s not in this because he wants fame. I feel incredibly lucky to do what I love and what I’m truly passionate about as an artist — and have people like it. If I could just do that for the rest of my life, I’d be a happy person.
