Example text

Bill walked around with a black umbrella all the time and we lived in cheap motels most of the time. Because where we shot the movie it was almost in the middle of nowhere. So we all stayed in terrible, terrible motels. And we were really like living the characters all the time. We never got out of it. Bill Paxton and I almost get arrested once. What did you do? Well, we were driving. We just came from shooting, and were in a convertible driving over the tombstones because I thought that, if we lived forever, a lot of the guys we knew from the 1800s were buried and I wanted to go visit their graves.

And we were dressed like in the movie, with the makeup and everything. So we were driving and I had this scar on my face and Bill had those shades. And we were speeding, so the cops pulled us over and they almost arrested us just because of the way we looked [laughs]. If I saw you like that, I would run away, not try to arrest you. One of them almost drew his gun when I got out of the car. Billy looked at me and said “Lance, don’t, don’t, don’t…” because he saw that I was going to play with the cop and do my character.

He’s a very strange and interesting man. I loved working with him very much. I think that was one of the reasons I shot that in New York. The people that made that picture didn’t have much money. ” We flew from Los Angeles, but we didn’t meet on the plane, we never met each other, but we knew off each other, and so we met in the lobby of the hotel at about midnight. We stayed up all night. ” We sort of partied all night. And then at six o’clock that morning we went up to shoot, and we shot all day and all night.
