if you don't become the ocean you'll be seasick every day
I don’t have any aspirations to be a leading man in the Hollywood sense. You have to be very specifically ambitious to be bankable in that way; to have a studio sign off on you, which is an entirely different thing from being good. You have to do the type of work to signal to people in Hollywood that you want to be ‘that guy’ and I’ve realised I just don’t want to be ‘that guy’.
