Alex: (on if he appreciates sight more because he portrays a blind man on Becker) Oh, without a doubt. When I first got the part, I went to the Braille Institute for some serious crash courses in being blind. And being blindfolded for hours on end will definitely put things in perspective. Because at first you feel scared, and then, being that you can't see, you become very clumsy. And once that happens, you become embarrassed. After that, you have to learn to trust yourself because you can't see. And that was one of the most difficult things to deal with. It was a great experience, and I'm glad I have all my senses still. I have great respect for all disabled people who keep on truckin'.
