Do you have a favourite movie and which director would you most like to work with?
It's funny, I always say my favourite movie, the one I watch over and over and over is
Coming To America
, with Eddie Murphy. Growing up I was, and still am, one of the biggest Eddie Murphy fans in the world. Anything he did, I watched. The director I would love to work with is Paul Greengrass, he's kick-ass in many different ways.
What is it about him that's so attractive or inspiring?
His ability to flesh out characters in an unconventional way. If you look at the Bourne movies, all the movies that he's done, none of them are asymmetrical as far as dealing with our reality, but he makes them very realistic. He makes you believe that something like that could happen, and I feel like he always puts the actor in a position to win. A lot of directors, they never give the actor the opportunies to win, to look cool, to be cool, they're so involved in the story and the way the movie looks that they forget about the actor. Greengrass has a very good hold on giving th actor the ability to win at every possible turn.
You know that they're doing a fourth
Beverly Hills Cop
I knew they were doing a TV show, I didn't know they were doing a movie. I'm gonna give them a call, maybe it's time he passed it down! I'll be Axel Foley!
