Writers will see your work and want to try you in different things but I think you have to stay true to your vehicle. We all have a vehicle. Whether it’s a thug, or a school child or the babyface or the sex siren or the video vixen, whatever it is ride that until the wheels fall off and eventually, if you build your foundation then you can branch off. I use De Niro as an example. At the beginning of his career when he was doing those thugged-out movies—The Godfather Part II, then Goodfellas and Casino—I guarantee you he wasn’t thinking about doing no Meet the Fockers.
