I've always loved movies about con men. I think con men are as American as apple pie.
I'm actually really opposed to the death penalty.
I support the troops. This is tough time right now. I think a lot of people in our industry are afraid to speak out. I had a drink with Sean Penn the other night. He went over to Baghdad in December just to see for himself what was going on. And that guy is as American as anybody I ever met.
