Christopher Meloni: (on what he wouldn't do as an actor)
Anything that didn't make sense. It has to make sense or I have to be able to make sense out of it. I'm not worried about anything if it's right. As long as I can understand it, I'll do it. It's the humdrum and mundane that I chafe at doing. Words written that hit the audience over the head. I've had conversations with writers like, 'Let's never have anyone say 'I'm a good cop.' Nobody says, 'He ate his gun.' Cliches I can't do.
