On talking to the dead: "I've never met anyone with power, but I do believe that it is possible. I'm open to that idea. I don't know that I'd go to a seance, but who knows? If I got a recommendation from somebody I trusted like, 'You should go to this guy's seance because he really seems legit...' What the hell? I'd probably check it out."
On facing the grim reaper: "I do contemplate my own mortality. Whenever you lose people, it's something you think about a lot and having kids is another thing that makes you give it some thought. Like most people, I've dealt with death, starting with my grandfather and then various friends, and it came in various ways, expected and unexpected. There's nothing we can do. We all gotta get there at some point. But, I sure am curious about what's next. I'm hopeful too. That's about all I can say. Who knows? Maybe the light just goes out, but we'll all find out."
On his big family: "My wife is about to have our fourth kid and we've drawn a line in the sand. This is it. Our lives are full and wonderful and we're done having kids. Lucy is in her third trimester for the fourth time and I think that's about enough to ask of any woman. I don't want to turn her into Ethel Kennedy."
On working with Clint Eastwood for the second time: "He called me and I was terrified at first that I wouldn't be able to do it because I was doing another film. That was heartbreaking. But, it all worked out because he shot a lot of the movie without me and then I did my scenes at the end. He's such an incredible person to work for because he's just so calm and he creates a really nice atmosphere and everyone feels really privileged to be working with him. The amazing thing is how fast he works. He can knock off a bunch of shots in a couple of hours that would take another director a whole day."
