Show more [on his role as "George Harvey" in The Lovely Bones (2009)] I never wanted to play a serial killer. I don't like to watch things about serial killers or kids getting hurt. I can't stand that, really. But this was something beyond that. It was an exploration of loss and hope. And I'm glad that I chose to do it. Hide

Sometimes being miscast is not just, "Can I play this character?" but can I play it within this aesthetic -- on if he's ever been miscast. Hide

It doesn't behoove the situation, it doesn't behoove your film. I'm not doing it." And other times, it's simply a discussion. "Let's do one this way, let's do one that way." Hide

You can take a plot and tell it over and over again but to me, there's an individual truth to it. First of all, in order for it to be art it has to be truthful. Secondly, it has to be individually true. It's that true individuality and that real truth that makes it art. Hide

Having made a lot of independent movies as an actor and director, trying to raise money-you can put Jesus Christ in your movie and it's really hard if it's an adult drama. The industry has changed significantly since I entered it. It's cyclical. But I don't think it's as healthy as it used to be. Hide

Whether you want to be on stage, whether you want to paint, make music, whatever you want to do. What makes you feel comfortable? Even as a kid, I felt much more comfortable on stage than I did in real life. Hide
