Q. You were talking about sitting on the bed, your dad giving you all the pointers of being an actor. From that day to this moment, what kind of ride has this been? And did you ever see this happening?
A. Well, you know, ups and downs, what does the Dude say? Strikes and gutters, man. That’s about it. That’s about it.
Q. What part of Bad Blake do you most identify with personally, and also, will you and Colin Farrell please form a country band?
A. The music, that’s what I most identified with Bad. I have been writing music, playing music since I was a kid. Unlike Bad, I have you know, I didn’t think he had great parents. Certainly didn’t have he had four, probably, great wives that he got rid of, you know.
But I have a very strong marriage, you know. Bad didn’t have that. There’s a lot of stuff he didn’t have. But the music, I don’t know about forming a country band. Sounds like a good idea. I’ll talk with those guys, maybe.
Q. As we see tonight, for a lot of your career you’ve been defined by one movie, The Big Lebowski. Will this put that to rest?
A. I’m digging the Dude. You know, I love him. That’s wonderful. You know, the success that he’s had. I was a little disappointed, when it first came out, it didn’t do much. But now we have Lebowski fests and all kinds of things.
