[2010, on making The Perfect Storm (2000)] That was a big deal for me, because that was a good part in a Hollywood blockbuster. And yeah, I died, but so did everyone. At least, I got to stay to the end. The actress, Rusty Schwimmer, and I met at an audition, and they put us in touch and said, “We want to screen-test you guys for the parts”. So, she and I went and had a beer or two and worked on the scene without anyone knowing we were doing it. We went in the next day, and it was one of those rare occasions where two actors screen-test together and both get the part. She was terrific.
