1Often plays intelligent, thoughtful characters


1From Case Western Law Docket: [T]hat's where my practice experience is - corporate and banking law. It's always something I've been interested in. What I'm particularly interested in is the real life impact of legal rules and legal structures. I think that the fundamental legal structures that shape our society come from corporate and financial law.
2[2014] The movie I hear the most about these days is What About Bob? (1991). That seems to be one that people still voluntarily watch. Frankly, my favorite is probably Dick Tracy (1990). That was the most satisfying in terms of what I did. I don't think I could have done any better than that.
3[the reason why he retired from acting] I worked pretty much constantly from age 10 to 13. I did five or six movies, but my family was living in Minneapolis at the time and I hadn't been in school regularly, and my voice was going to change soon. I decided I was tired of the grind and wanted to go back to school.
4I never had a bad experience on a movie. You read about various people that are supposedly hard to work with. You hear stories about Warren Beatty or Bill Murray. But everyone was very nice to me. Maybe it's because I was a kid. And they would use the fact that I was a kid. So when everyone was waiting and they needed Warren Beatty on the set, they would send me to go get him. You know, "Hey, there's 200 people waiting for you. You better come out here."
5[1997, MIT Spectrum]: Making movies was a real weird kind of adult experience. In a way it was like MIT, in that it was a great education. The big lesson is people are people. They're smart, funny, creative people, but they're people.
6I'm happy with the movies I did, and the movies I didn't do.
7I don't love acting enough to give up my life. [after his big-screen retirement from Hollywood announcement; 1991]
8I don't know what I'll do. I always thought it might be neat to be a philosopher... [about what he'll do in the future; 1991]
