2Tough characters with a militaristic background
1There are many different reasons why people take parts. For me, there are basically two: one is economic -- you have to keep working, pay the rent; that's a given. The other one, for me, usually has nothing to do with the overall film - whether the script is good, whom I'm working with, whether it's going to get good reviews -- it's just the part, the character. Is this somebody whose shoes I want to live in for four months? If I don't instinctively answer 'yes' to that question, I shouldn't be doing the movie.
