"There's definitely some of me in Turtle. I always think there's at least 10 percent of yourself in every character: I'd like to believe there's at least 10 percent of Daniel Day Lewis in Lincoln, even if that may not be the truth since he's the robot of acting and on another planet. So I've always taken the approach of living though [Turtle]. I don't have the freedom of speech that he has. He just speaks his mind with no filter at all. And that's how I've always played it. It's about loyalty. If you don't buy the friendship between these four guys, then you're not going to tolerate them talking about women the way that they do or watch a movie star pay $20,000 for a pair of sneakers. In the early years, diehards were screaming for evolution: 'When are these guys going to grow up?' But it really didn't matter if they made it – they were always going to ride together. Turns out it was one fucking crazy ride."
