I don't think of it that way. I'm just flattered playing smart guys who get to figure out before anybody else what's going on. So that's awfully fun.
I got good grades in school, but I was in a little school and a small town out of Pittsburgh, not academically demanding or ambitious, I don't know how much that says but I was not that science thrilled I was more in to playing sports, jazz, painting and acting, stuff like that, but recently because of playing these parts I've gotten more interested in science, my dad was a doctor, and I'm reading this Carl Sagan book that makes science, see the way he talks about it is very aliquot, makes it seems kind of human kind of romantic and wondrous, spirituals, sexy vermeil, its very attractive book that he just wrote.
I grew up watching sci-fi and monster movies like I Was a Teenage Werewolf (1957) and all those creepy old Vincent Price horror movies. They made a huge impression on me and I think that's what Independence Day (1996) is going to do for a whole generation of youngsters. It's going to be their favorite nightmare.
