I would rather quit while I was ahead. There’s no need in overstaying your welcome.

I would just look at Harrison [Harrison Ford]; he would do stuff and I would not mimic it, but interpret it younger. Mimicking is a terrible mistake that many people make when they play someone younger, or with an age difference. Mimicking doesn’t interpret true because you can’t just edit it around. [on his interpretation of a young Indiana Jones in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)]
