The Hollywood Ham: Philip, you have built up a resume on par with the best ever. How do you do it?
Philip Seymour Hoffman: Listen, I know you’re excited to meet me, but I’m just like any other guy. I go to work, I come home from work. I do it again the next day.
HH: Very humble of you. But are you saying it’s not exciting anymore? You’re one of the best actors of this generation.
PSH: To be honest with you, it gets kind of boring nailing it every time.
HH: What do you do to spice it up?
PSH: I take roles destined to fail. Take Mission Impossible 3.
HH: Great film. Love the series.
PSH: Stop kissing my ass. Those movies inspire bad acting so I thought there would be no chance I’d do well, but oops, nailed it anyway.
HH: What about the prestige pictures? Doubt?
PSH: Perfect example – I thought Meryl Streep would put me in my place and I’d learn from the master.
PSH: You saw the film. Didn’t turn out that way, did it?
HH: You even killed in Along Came Polly.
PSH: I don’t know what that is, but you’re probably right. Hell, I even killed in a movie where I co-starred with a ferret.
HH: That’s Along Came Polly! You nailed ‘
PSH: Only I can say I nailed it. And I did ‘
PSH: Nail it.
