I remember that one. I imagine the producer and director's face when they heard that.
Not exactly the same, but it also reminded me of Nic Cage allegedly wanting to portray the bad guy in Green Hornet, with a Jamaican accent, before exiting the project. I like crazy actors, great performances sometimes but always good funny anecdotes.

Remember reading something that when Nic Cage done his "big daddy" for the first time the director was taken back thinking he was the worst actor in world. Then he explained the character was most likely brought up on Adam West.

Nick Cage = Genius

"I totally thought they did a damned good job. It was the first "Batman' movie I've genuinely liked. I sat there, I watched it, and I came out of there going, 'Well done, man.' Sure, they used my stuff - they used everybody's stuff, but they used my stuff a lot - but they did it well, and that's all I care about. It was Batman. What I mean by that is, I thought the character was true. You understand, when I work on a character, I have a very, very hard time seeing anybody else's interpretation. I get very possessive. But when I went out to see this thing, I said, 'This is a pretty cool Batman.' I wasn't sitting there going, 'This is a merchandising tool.' I felt like it really had heart and substance, and Christian Bale with no doubt performed the best Batman I have ever seen".

"You know, weirdly, somewhat frighteningly he was the easiest character ever written, I think that character is common to a sort of long history of – you’ll find a version of him in almost every culture, going back thousands of years, sort of taps into something elemental the sort of jokester, the trickster, and it just kind of, you sit down and write that character and there’s a, it just kind of appears."

Great quote. I remember it because I'm an avid Empire Reader. I think Ellroy was also mocking Depp as Dillinger in "Public Enemies." He was really funny and real and wasn't sugar coating or PC at all.
I like that, it makes for a fun, unusual interview.

He made that scene last, what, five minutes? And all we do is stand there and stare at each other with the music blaring on the soundtrack. It's one of the most impressive scenes I've ever seen, let alone been involved in.

Green Lantern wasn't very good unfortunately. Not terrible either though. It's hard to make a good superhero film apparently.

"I was always jealous of Paul Thomas Anderson because he was like, ‘Oh, I’m friends with Stanley Kubrick and I’m friends with Jonathan Demme and all these directors. And I was thinking to myself, you know, one day I’m going to make an important film, and these guys are going to be my friends, too...” - Brett Ratner
