#Quote
1[on George Michael] He's very, very talented, and I'll always like Wham! I thought it was cool. "Father Figure" was something else!
2[on "S.W.A.T."] I loved "S.W.A.T." In retrospect, I wish I could have had a bigger role in it, but I had a great time doing it, and it was a success. It was actually the coolest movie I've ever done, in terms of just a pure movie. It was the most entertaining and well done.
3[on "Rollerball"] I felt like it was a bad movie. Wack. Terrible. That's the thing with making movies: You're always going to make some stuff you believe is bad. This was mine.
4[on "Any Given Sunday"] It was a dream-fulfilling experience because growing up I had always wanted to be a pro football player. And if I had stayed in Long Island, I probably would have pursued it more vigorously. I actually got to run with the ball in Texas Stadium, wearing No. 33 -- and [Tony] Dorsett was the guy that I loved growing up -- and I got to play on a team and run the ball and take some real hits. It was great.
5[on "Deep Blue Sea"] The most appealing role I've ever had. It was fun, it was crazy, it was a success from the beginning, and my role kept getting bigger and bigger on that set. They actually had to reshoot the ending so I could survive because the people [in test screenings] didn't want me to die.
6[on Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (1998)] - Jamie Lee Curtis taught me a lot about being classy on set. Me and my guys would be there, and she would be leaving and say, "Oh, take my trailer!" I played the security guard who everybody thought was going to die, but I didn't. That brother lived! That was wonderful. I shocked the world! Then I shocked the world a year later in Deep Blue Sea (1999) and lived again.
7[on Deep Blue Sea (1999)] - The parrot chewed my ear something crazy. I had to take my earrings out because he kept biting them like a chew toy. Also, the [animatronic] shark didn't always work on cue. I almost drowned once. The guy took his hand off the joystick [that maneuvered the shark] when they called lunch, but I had put my leg in the shark's mouth, so I was stuck under water. Luckily, they had given me a little canister with some extra oxygen. When I finally came up, I was furious.
8I don't think you should go around talking trash about people because I think that's how you get your hat handed to you. I'm good at what I do, but I wouldn't be so bold and arrogant as to say something disrespectful about, say, Eminem. He's talented and he's good at what he does.
9I think when you move past your fear and you go after your dreams wholeheartedly, you become free. Know what I'm saying? Move past the fear.
10One thing I'm not gonna do, because I'm black, is suddenly say 'you know what, I can't play a villain!' You don't need to be the good guy to get a good message out. I'm not going to limit myself like that. I just want to play good roles and be able to touch a lot of people.
11I'm happy to be black. I am what I am, I'm doing very well in my life, and I'm thankful to God for that. I am a real person that cares about his art and cares about what he's doing - I have a heart and a soul and want to touch people and give. As a black man, my hope is that I can touch more and more people all over the world of different races and different colours. And I think eventually, if I just stay on this path, we'll get there.
12Hip-hop can be limiting and I refuse to accept limits. I've been training as an actor for six years. Nobody goes to acting school for six years. I mean, the college course is only four years! I absolutely trained. My acting coach is from the Stanislavsky school. It's real - I act.
13Am I James Todd Smith now or LL Cool J? Pick a name baby. Pick a name and ride with it. I don't wanna abandon my identity as LL Cool J, but at the same time, I had to figure out how to let people know that I'm really serious about making these movies. You know when you do 25 or 30 movies and people are still asking you 'how does it feel making the transition?' you know you're not communicating correctly. So I just put the James Todd Smith thing there to let people know I was serious. It's not like I made it Lawrence Cool J or something!.
14"Rollerball sucked!" - discussing one of his movies on Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
15Keeping it real ain't about carrying a gun or smoking blunts. It's about being true to yourself and those around you.
