Film Meme: actors (5/6)I’m very fortunate to be an actor. I know I’m very lucky to be doing this. And though I’m not sure where I’m going to end up—whether it’s in major films, independents, or theater work—I’m just happy getting to do roles that are really juicy, meaningful and allow me to keep adventuring the way I have been. - Sam Rockwell

"I need a lay-low for a week…"
“I used to get beat up by the white kids, so I became friends with a guy named Leroy and a guy named Charles, two African-American kids. Leroy Price was an athlete. He was a tough guy. The girls liked him. We were in choir class and we used to smoke pot together, and we started hanging out. And I’d go to the dances. I started getting into the break-dancing; it was just a way to meet girls, and in particular black girls. Back then I did more strutting and popping, Michael Jackson and ‘Thriller’, Prince and ‘Purple Rain’.” Today, there’s more James Brown. “To be really honest, I’m not that good, I’m kind of faking it.”
