I don't think of it that way. I'm just flattered playing smart guys who get to figure out before anybody else what's going on. So that's awfully fun.
I got good grades in school, but I was in a little school and a small town out of Pittsburgh, not academically demanding or ambitious, I don't know how much that says but I was not that science thrilled I was more in to playing sports, jazz, painting and acting, stuff like that, but recently because of playing these parts I've gotten more interested in science, my dad was a doctor, and I'm reading this Carl Sagan book that makes science, see the way he talks about it is very aliquot, makes it seems kind of humankind of romantic and wondrous, spirituals, sexy vermeil, its very attractive book that he just wrote.
I mean, forget about Jurassic Park (1993), I remember the real-event movie when I was a kid was "King Kong Vs. Godzilla" (King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962)). There was a theatre outside of Pittsburgh where I grew up, a real jewel box inside, three balconies.
