(in response to his first starring film role in "The Visitor" (2008)) I would say `I`ll go back to my trailer now,` and they`d say, `No, no, you`re in the next scene. It`s one of those things that I didn`t know if I would ever get an opportunity to try. I`ve been waiting my entire professional life for this experience.
