COMIC GENIUS GETS IN TOUCH WITH THIS DARK SIDE FOR HIS NEXT THREE PROJECTS.
AND YOU THOUGHT PATCH ADAMS WAS EVIL.
THIS, THE EVE OF YOUR 50TH BIRTHDAY, YOU, THE FORMER SAINT ROBIN (PATCH
ADAMS, BICENTENNIAL MAN, ETC), ARE UNLEASHING THREE PSYCHO ROBINS
(DEATH TO SMOOCHY, INSOMNIA, AND ONE HOUR PHOTO). IS
THIS LIKE A SICK BIRTHDAY GIFT TO YOUR PUBLIC?
write me a nice letter now, BITCH! [as Mike Tyson] Dear Robin, this
is Mike Tyson. I love what you did in Insomnia, so if you ever want
to go to dinner
. No, these characters just came in a weird wave
of three. Its not like saying, Now were Villains-R-Us.
YOU KNOW THAT EVERYONE THINKS YOURE DOING THIS AS AN IMAGE REJIGGER,
But you cant rejigger an imagepeople who found
Patch to be the end of the universe as we know it, you cant
change them; you cant go [as pod person], Look. Now I am one of
you. I see the universe is vile. Join me. You just say, Get over
YOURE DOING WITH A VENGEANCE IN INSOMNIAWHY,
YOURE A CRAZED KILLER GOING UP AGAINST SERPICO [COSTAR AL PACINO]
Serpico without sleep, because the movie is set in Alaska when its
23 hours of daylighta crack addicts wet dream!
IMPROV-CENTRAL, DID YOU GET TO RIFF IN CHARACTER AT ALL?
has this image that youre just riffing like crazy, but, no, sometimes
its like tits on a bullunnecessary. Like Good
Will Hunting was just well-writtentheres no
need to add.
DISCOVERED THAT SCRIPT, DIDNT YOU?
through my niece, who was working with Matt [Damon]. I went, This is
amazingbut, boys, I want some I.D. [as a cop to
Damon and Affleck] Step away from Winona, boys. [as a cop to Winona
Ryder] Girl, put back that jewelry!
YOUR EARLY STUFF, IM PERSONALLY PARTIAL TO CADILLAC MAN, A FILM
THAT CHARMINGLY OPENS WITH YOU GOING DOWN ON FRAN DRESCHER.
was amazing, cause there was a dog in that scene, too. [barks like a
dog] Its my turn! [as Drescher] Chester, get away
from there! They used to clean the dogs ass with a Q-tip and leave
them around, and the makeup people were always going, But which one
did FRAN use?
MOVING ON, THE FISHER KING.
a great movie. But it was another case of a Patch reactionpeople
said it trivialized the homeless. I said, Um, I dont think so
But, man, Jeff [Bridges] is the best actor in Americahe
just gets ignored cause hes so fuckin good.
YOUVE GOT THE OSCAR AND HE DOESNT. SO WHAT DO YOU REMEMBER ABOUT
was a weird thing. But I do remember looking out and seeing [fellow nominee]
Burt Reynolds, like, saying, Drop it, fucker!
AND BURT HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON, THOUGHYOUVE
BOTH SEEMED TO ALWAYS BASK IN BEING A STAR.
for me its a ride, and you can get on and off of it. Thats why
I live in San FranciscoI dont stick out here. But
I love parties, I love premieres, and I literally get nuts when Im around
other famous people. Like meeting Bette Davis and her saying [as Davis], Remember
to say noits the most difficult word. Or Olivier
at my first Academy Awards when he said [as Olivier],. Are you wearing
makeup? and I went, Yes, sir, and he went, Dontit
makes you look effeminate. [laughs] Those things stay in your mind and,
..THATS what the ride is.
