I think I`m the only actor in the history of film who got to slap Sam Jackson on the face and butt and lived to tell about it.
At the end of the day, the numbers that we`re hearing are not going to be totally correct or not correct at all.
We went through all the scenes and they became kind of funny and they expanded a little bit and because it seemed to be working so well in the movie, they added a couple of things later on in the movie and that`s how it turned out.
The greatest thing about doing this movie was that Chris and I both were involved in folk music in the `60s. I had a group, but I don`t think it was at the same level as Chris, because he`s an amazing musician.
In ten minutes, I`m thinking, `OK, you know what? I love these guys. They`re really smart, they`re really good, they`ve got a good sense of comedy, under their guidance, I think maybe this could come out OK.` But I didn`t like the part.
I don`t believe I`ve ever played a hip dude. I don`t think I would have the wherewithal to do that.
I am the common man. I`m polite, I love my family and I play by the rules. And sometimes I get pushed around. That`s my lifestyle, and that`s what I try to bring to characters.
I can`t do comedy that is cutting and vicious. If I knew I`d said something that was going to make someone feel bad, well, that supersedes everything.
This was more of a cartoonish thing for me and it kind of took me back to SCTV, in a way, where the characters are just a little broader and you can have that kind of fun going a little over the edge.
