  • "I was about to do a small independent film with a bunch of crazy Internet people who had written a story. It was about a virus that gets into a building and starts to work on people's brains. Very interesting, intriguing story; very nice people. Then I got a call that the money is gone. There wasn't a lot anyway. Then I got a call from my agent, and he said they're shooting a Batman in London and Christopher Nolan is directing. So I read the script Friday, called them Saturday and on Sunday, I sat down with Christopher Nolan at breakfast. It was just an hour, and he said, 'OK, this is nice, let's start work on Monday.' He could only do that because they gave him the power, and I love him for it. I like people who work like that, and I like also people like me who take it."
