Personal Quote:

When I went out to L.A., I knew one thing: property is king. No one wanted me--there's nothing worse than a pretty boy actor who wants to be a producer, especially a lousy actor. And I bought a property called "The Detective" to get my foot in the door. So I went to 20th Century-Fox and demanded a three-picture deal and got it. Without the property, they wouldn't have given me anything. See more »
