character by saying those lines

just thrilled me.

When I was a kid and I wanted

to be an actor, I wanted

it is a--it's--it's a weird


I always thought I was a

character actor.

And, you know, I-I think

it's one of the coolest things

that--that anyone can be called.

I didn't used to.

I was like, "a character actor?

If you're lucky enough,

you're going to get to make your

living somewhere in the middle

without getting too much

attention, but working enough

that you can actually make a

living at it, you know.

And it's kind of ideal in a way.

And the bottom line is,
