Some suggestions for you :

I knew at an early age I wanted to act. Acting was always easy for me. I don't believe in predestination, but I do believe that once you get where ever it is you are going, that is where you were going to be.

When I was a teenager, I began to settle into school because I'd discovered the extracurricular activities that interested me: music and theater.

I gravitate towards gravitas.

I've been living with myself all of my life, so I know all of me. So when I watch me, all I see is me. It's boring.

As you grow in this business, you learn how to do more with less.

I find it difficult to watch myself... I find it boring.

Martin Luther King Jr. is remembered as our prince of peace, of civil rights. We owe him something major that will keep his memory alive.

People say it's a movie about boxing, but... I don't agree at all. I don't think it's a movie about boxing. Boxing is like a platform. It's just a stage where this is played out.

Learning how to be still, to really be still and let life happen - that stillness becomes a radiance.

I feel fine, I don't care who the director is. All you have to do is know what your doing - all of us - everybody in the business - that's all you ask anyone - you know your job, I know mine, let's go do it.

When I was doing theater, I was very successful at believing that I was great, God's gift to the theater.

Most of the time it's the role. Sometimes it's the story and sometimes it just the paycheck. It's the little movies that come out as stories or the fact that I have work to go out, you know what I'm saying, you can only be out so long without work, you start getting antsy.

Give me something interesting to play and I'm happy.

Life doesn't offer you promises whatsoever so it's very easy to become, 'Whatever happened to... ?' It's great to be wanted. I spent a few years not being wanted and this is better.
