ABOUT HANNIBAL THE CANNIBAL

If you’re playing the bad guy, you have to find what you like about them. And once you do one bad guy, usually all you get offered is bad guys.

ABOUT CHILDHOOD

I was a very focused kid. I always had this crazy lifestyle… billions of jobs, two hours of gymnastics every day, handball, anything with a ball, really. I must have had ADHD or something. I was very energetic, and very small. I didn’t start growing until the last year of high school.

ABOUT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PICTURE AND FRAME

Sometimes we misunderstand what films can do. We just throw a whole book in there, with people just talking, talking, and talking. The picture can tell, the frame can tell.

ABOUT GOALS

I’m not looking for a challenge, necessarily. I’m looking to make a really great film. Also, I come from a culture where you don’t divide it up to what you can do on TV and what you can do on film.

ABOUT BRYAN FULLER

I choose work with the people I like to work with.
