1 Often plays brash, loudmouth characters


1 Wag The Dog was my first film role. I think I had three scenes, but it took three weeks. But I only shot like one day every week. My first scene on my first day was with Dustin Hoffman. It was a walk-and-talk scene, with Steadicam, and I remember we started the scene and one of my lines got jumped, and I didn't know what to do. I was somewhat flabbergasted. But that's the way movie-making goes; no one says like, "Okay, are you ready?" They assume you're ready when they say "Action!"
2 (On Snakes on a Plane) Delightful. Love it. I got to work with Sam Jackson, which was a delight. And I got to be in a movie called Snakes On A Plane. C'mon! And I got to die. I got to be a hero first, and then die. Those are really fun roles for actors.
3 (On Larry The Cable Guy: Health Inspector) Yeah. It was my manager's movie, and he asked me to do it. So I did. Not the highlight of my career. But they're all nice people. I was more than apprehensive, and still regretful that I played a character called Donnie The Retard. I think that probably could've been... done without. But I was paid well...
4 (On his brief role on Hannah Montana) My daughter was a fan of the show, and I had met a makeup artist whose wife worked on it, and he said, "Hey, if you ever want to go see a taping, I can get you tickets." But I waited a year to take him up on it, and by then he said, "You know what? The show's become so popular that I can't get you tickets anymore. But you can make a set visit on a Thursday instead of on the tape day, Friday." And I was delighted, because a tape day would take like five hours, but if I just visited when they were doing pre-tapes, I could be out of this whole thing rather quickly. So I went down there with my daughter and her friend, got an autograph from Ms. Cyrus, who was delightful by the way, and then one of the producers came up and said, "Hey, would you do our show? We've been trying to get in touch with you for a year!" That was the first I'd heard about it. I said "I'd love to do it." My only recollections? Fat suit! Also, it was interesting to take my kids to school, and suddenly there were all these little girls who'd look at me and do a double-take, right? Their jaws dropped just a tiny little bit. "Is that...?"
5 (On filming Anchorman) With Anchorman, the thing I loved the most was that we all understood that something special was coming together while we were shooting, almost to the point where we didn't want to break it up. I remember having conversations with Steve Carell and Paul Rudd and all of us opining "Wow, this feels pretty good." And not wanting to overstate it, almost as if we'd jinx it. I mean look, you think every movie's gonna work, right? You think every movie has great potential. But that one in particular, it felt like, man, every cylinder was poppin'. We shot enough for two movies, you know.
