actors | myth | Pursued | Roles | Seems | stories

I've never pursued a role. I always hear stories about actors going after parts and I'm, like, 'How do they do that?' It seems so weird. It seems like a total myth or something.

Beyond A Reasonable Doubt | Differences | doubt | Enormous | goal | Ifs | In-Laws | innocence | law | presumption | Presumption Of Innocence | Proof | Reasonable | Reasonable Doubt | Roles | thinking | Truth Is

I don't think the law exists to arrive at the truth. If it did, we wouldn't have exclusionary rules, we wouldn't have presumptions of innocence, we wouldn't have proof beyond reasonable doubt. There's an enormous difference between the role of truth in law and the role of truth in science. In law, truth is one among many goals.


I've worked with Andre Techine lately and with a young unknown director on a short film. I choose my roles carefully.
