Brion James quotes

I play out negative fantasies for people. I'm the guy people love to hate. And they always remember the bad guy.

I'm a parrot. I can pick up an accent and just do it.

I never play a villain that I don't have something I can either do or say so the audience sees there is something redeemable about them. In other words, I don't want to do evil for evil's sake. I don't want to do Jason slasher movies. There's no point in that.

Blade Runner helped make my career. Everybody was in it. Who knew?

I could talk about Blade Runner forever.

I still do television. I don't care. I just want to work. I love to work. I want to do 500 movies.

I was a different kind of kid, oversensitive and all that.

I'm a character actor, so I don't take the hit if the movie's bad, the lead does. So, I don't want to be the lead. He takes the hit, I don't.

I've never considered myself a leading man, don't look like one, don't want to be one.

In the '70s, everybody was doing drugs, so long as you showed up and did your work, they'd use you until you died.

Larry Kasdan is a great director.

The bad guys are the best parts.

The best thing about Sci-Fi, which is my favorite genre, is that there are no rules for behavior. So you can do anything you want.

Work begets work.
