I’m watching A Christmas Carol with Patrick Stewart as Scrooge. As well acted as it is, there are so many inaccuracies. For instance, there’s no rat-accountants in Scrooge’s office. Also they’ve completely missed the other Marley brother, and their song. As a matter of fact, there’s no songs at all. Next there’ll be no Fozziwig’s Rubber Chicken Factory. Avoid.
Santa isn’t about ontology. It’s about giving gifts and not taking credit for them. Learning the joy of finding the perfect gift for a loved one and watching them open it. To see the joy and surprise and tears when they open it. It’s about learning to become Santa.
What we’re setting out to do with [Clash of the Titans 2] — the writers and the director and myself — is improve. I think I can act f***ing better, to be honest…Just take all the notes from people that I have been reading about on the ‘net and give them a movie they f***ing want.
