I was always a singer, but I was always focused on being an actor as my trade. Music, I do just for me. The movie business is very difficult but the music business is just impossible. So I’ll play in bands and record and play songs with other people, but for me it’s a form of expression that all I need is me. I don’t need cameras or agents, I can just have a piano and sing and feel totally verified … I’m actually looking to do a project where I could really try to explore that a little bit more in cinema, a rock star or something. I’d really, really love to do that.
Can you tell us a little bit more about your upcoming movie The Avengers: Age Of Ultron? (x)
I will forever love that Jeremy Renner was disappointed he didn’t get to be Clint the goofy asshole and face-palm causer in the first Avengers. I can’t fucking wait to see what he does in Ultron.
