(8-08 Dragon Con)

I recently uh, I learned a lesson. I had this little tiny role in a movie called P.S. I Love You and the thing was, I was trying to be a good boy. I was coming from television with these big ideas and don’t mess anything up – but it wasn’t television, it was a movie and I had kind of an underwritten character. And I should have been, “I want a flying monkey on my shoulder and I want to have a mohawk!” and something interesting. So when I walked out of that film I said, “that’s a great film. Who was that boring guy?” So when I got down to Mexico and we’re shooting Dragonball, I was on the warpath. I had all these ideas and the makeup artist was like, “uh, James the producer does not want us to do that with the character” and I’m like “the producer is not here.” Yeah, it was full blown mutiny – I’d really rather get fired than to not do it the way you should be doing it. So yeah, you can learn a lot by watching yourself, like, “oh, don’t do THAT!”
