I don't believe in anti-heroes. Duke Wayne played a mean guy but never an anti-hero.
People say I'm a one-note actor, but the way I figure it, those other guys are just looking for that one right note.
I have no regrets, except perhaps one: I should have tried harder to be a better actor.
After 87 pictures in 47 years, I knew when to quit.
