1 Quote »

[in New York Magazine, commenting about his recurring role as a terrorist on TV`s "24" (2001)] I have a huge political problem with the role. It was essentially accepting a form of racial profiling. I think it`s repulsive. But it was the first time I had a chance to blow stuff up and take a family hostage. As an actor, why shouldn`t I have that opportunity? Because I`m brown and I should be scared about the connection between media images and people`s thought processes?
