I love experiencing other people's realities, seeing the world through their eyes for a short period of time.
I love how people in this business push themselves to know themselves, the world, and their creativity better.
I want to be so strong as an actor that people wouldn't say... eh, that's Josh Lucas.
I'm challenged by people like Russell Crowe and Sean Penn who come in with such incredible discipline and power.
I've worked with some incredibly difficult directors but my understanding is that a lot of the best people are driven from a place of being extremely challenging and dark within their way.
There's such good people out there where there filmmaking world is alive.
I think that often times Hollywood panders to the cliches of small town life, specifically Southern small town life, and I think that this movie does the opposite.
The Hulk, that was the experience of my life, so far.
Every day is intense and alive, whether it's travel, work, even down time, which there is so little of.
I think I've spent so much time playing characters that are so far away from me and learning how to technically build and how to technically put something on top of you.

It was a long period of time where I tried to figure out what worked, what didn't work.

I'll look at the script and I'll try to find as many books, movies, and pieces of music that I think are going to feed each scene or the character as a whole.
I visited those friends who'd just had a baby, and she was washing dishes and he was cleaning the house, and I burst with happiness. And in their minds, they were in this terrible domestic rut.
