Quotes

#Quote
1When I was young, I had a favorite movie star. One day I saw one of his movies and it was bad and he was bad in it. I could tell he didn't care and only did it for the money. I felt betrayed. I never watched another one of his movies again. To my German fans I will always do my best, no matter what. It means a lot that you believe in me. I won't let you down.
2In Spawn (1997), I just auditioned and got the role. I was cast as Jax in Mortal Kombat but, New Line wanted me to play Spawn. The "star-status" thing was never difficult for me. My heroes were never actors. They were real men in the real world like senseis, police officers, and teachers. There continue to be rumors about Spawn 2, there have been for years. I spoke to Todd McFarlane months ago and I know he intends on doing a sequel. I am not sure when.
3I met Jean Claude on Universal Soldier, part 1. I was "Soldier #2." Jean Claude and I trained together on that movie and always got along great. Years later, in the sequel, we got along just as well. This was the first movie where I showed a bit of my martial arts skills. Unfortunately, the script and the director were not very good. I wanted to show myself when compared to a martial arts icon like Van Damme. I achieved my purpose.
4Again, I wanted to compare myself with another martial arts icon in Steven Segal. I had worked with him three other times in the past. It is true he can be difficult at times but, I had no problem with him. He is a very gifted choreographer and technician. Dion Lam is an incredible, one of the best, fight technicians I have ever worked with. I don't prefer wire-work.
