I was the Marlon Brando of my generation.
Acting is all about big hair and funny props... All the great actors knew it. Olivier knew it, Brando knew it.
I would have to say honestly I was very pleased to be in a film whether it was good or bad with De Niro, Norton and Brando even if I don't have any scenes with them, I thought it was pretty good company to keep.
But to this day I am convinced that the real reason we met was because Alexander is from Nebraska, and he was completely fascinated that I was about to go off and make a movie with Brando - perhaps the most famous Nebraskan of all.
I had life threats, because people accused me of approaching Brando as God and his son was Jesus. I literally had people saying my blood would run in the streets for doing that.
Brando's a family friend. His mother gave my father a shot to be in a play at the Omaha Community Playhouse. That was the first production he was in.
The most realistic blood I've seen is when Marlon Brando gets beat up in On The Waterfront.
I'm not Jack Nicholson. I'm not Brando. But I do mumble.
Marlon Brando. The finest actor who ever lived. He was my idol when I was 13. He's done enough work to last two lifetimes. Everything I do, I think: Can Brando play this with me?
Anyone of my generation who tells you he hasn't 'done Brando' is lying.
