And what is your career highlight?
I’ve concentrated on not playing the same character twice, so in a sense it’s a tougher road to hoe because you’re constantly experimenting in different areas and I think people really like it when you’re in one category — it’s just easier for people to get their head around. I love doing the bigger films, I love doing the grittier, more intimate indies, whether it’s Superman Returns to a movie like Wonderland, or Beyond the Sea, or the film I just did with Michael, which is called Big Sur. Big Sur was a real departure for me because it’s based on [Jack] Kerouac’s book, so all the dialogue in the movie is pretty much as it’s written in the book. Kerouac didn’t really use any grammar, so in a sense you had to find a real rhythm with the dialogue that was unnatural. The challenge is to always connect with the audience, so how do you take something that feels like the ’60s speak, and kind of unnatural, to really connecting emotionally with an audience and transcending that. That was a challenging role, but also one I learned so much on and feel really proud of. I can’t wait for people to see that movie. [Michael] did a beautiful job.
