Strong Alabama accent
[on golfing skills in 'Utopia' film] I'm a real golfer. I've had experience playing competitively, and I think it helped tremendously for the role, because there are certain things--the way a golfer carries himself, his demeanor--that it would be hard for an actor to fake.
If you have to change something about you to be in a part, I don't think it's easy to do. You should just pick the part where you can just be yourself. [About turning down a part in The Horse Whisperer (1998) because he was required to change his accent]
