1. THIS TIME WE THROW AS MUCH AT HIM AS WE COULD. WE SEE A SIDE OF HIM WE HAVEN’T SEE BEFORE. HOW HE CAN OPERATE AROUND THE KID AND WE SEE HOW… USELESS HE IS AROUND WOMEN.
2. IT’S PAR FOR THE COURSE. YOU HOLD YOUR HANDS UP TO THAT KIND OF STUFF … BRAVE OR STUPID IS THE OPERATIVE WORD.
3. IT’S JUST LOU-LOU TRYING TO BE FUNNY,… ALTHOUGH HE DID SAY, ”IN PART 2, YOU WILL BECOME THE GAY ICON.
4. I SUPPOSE I’M A DECENT DRIVER,… I USED TO DRIVE FAST WHEN I WAS A KID. WE ALWAYS USED TO RACE EACH OTHER DOWN THE STREETS, BUT YOU GET A BIT MORE SENSIBLE NOW AS YOU GET A BIT OLDER.
5. I WAS LIKE, ”WELL, WE’D THINK HE’D BE USELESS AROUND KIDS,” … BUT I THINK HE FINDS HIMSELF MORE COMFORTABLE AROUND CHILDREN THAN HE REALIZES.
6. HE’S THE MAN WHO CONTROLS EVERYTHING,… HE CREATED THIS CHARACTER, SO IF HE WANTS TO DO ANOTHER ONE THEN I’M THE FIRST ONE IN.
7. THIS TIME WE THROW AS MUCH S…T AT HIM (FRANK AS WE COULD.
8. I’M A MASSIVE FAN OF JAMES BOND, AND I’VE SEEN EVERY ONE OF THE MOVIES. IF WAS TO DO THAT MOST PRESTIGIOUS ROLE, THEN I THINK I WOULD BE ABLE TO ADD A NEW, MODERN FEEL TO IT.
9. AUDIENCE-PLEASING GEMS CAN GET DISCOVERED IN TORONTO RATHER THEN LOST IN THE SHUFFLE BECAUSE YOU HAVE A GREAT CROSS SECTION OF AUDIENCES THAT ATTEND THESE SCREENINGS.
10. THAT’S WHERE I GET TO EXPRESS MYSELF.
11. WHAT DO YOU MEAN FOR A CHANGE, MATE? … THERE ARE ALWAYS MORE PEOPLE MORE SINISTER THAN MYSELF.
12. I DO ALL MY OWN FIGHTS, BUT I’M OK. I’LL JUST HOBBLE AROUND.
13. WE ARE SO USED TO MAKING EMPTY PROMISES ON A DAILY BASIS,… HERE’S A GUY WHO MAKES A PROMISE TO A KID AND RISKS HIS OWN LIFE TO KEEP THAT WORD. SO I THINK PEOPLE THINK, ‘OH, I WISH I COULD BE THAT GOOD.
14. HE’S THE JAMES BOND THAT DRINKS A HEINEKEN, NOT A MARTINI.
