 It is also finding the right ones..I have a comedy called High School that may come out this year. I play Psycho Ed…It’s a very broad comedy but at the same time I wanted my character to be intimidating to the boys who steal from him.

 Darjeeling Limited is a comedy but there is substance, there is feeling and an opportunity for three brothers to reconnect and contemplate their dysfunctional relationship with each other and the loss of their father…and these are all relevant things that we can connect to.

 The idea that achieving success in one area of your life will remove all of your problems is a delusion that most people have. I fortunately have seen both sides of the coin. I was a struggling actor in Los Angeles for many years and now as a successful actor, I have become very grateful for what I have.
