Acting is just common sense. It isn’t hard if you put yourself aside and just do what the writer wrote.
There’s a lot of room for error with a wound in the rear. It’s a wide target.
I saw my wife at a pool, flipped over her, and 14 days later we were married.
Too many actors have run for office. There’s one difference between me and them: I know I’m not qualified.
I think my attitude has always been to put food on the table.
I don’t take success very well, because I know it’s fleeting. And the next day, it can all fall apart. I know that, too. So I don’t get too high, and I don’t get too low. You get through the world a lot easier that way.
I think people like to see a little larceny in their heroes.
When people see me in something and say, ‘That’s just you – that’s not acting,’ it’s the best compliment I can get.
The characters I’ve played, especially Bret Maverick and Jim Rockford, almost never use a gun, and they always try to use their wits instead of their fists.
My goal has always been longevity. Not fame and fortune, just get a job and keep it.
