  • Quotes

    • Kevin Grevioux: (when asked how he came up with Underworld) I came up with it on my own. But I have to tip my hat to Len Wiseman. He's the guy who brought me in. He originally just wanted to do a werewolf movie. But he wasn't sure if it was a good idea since there really haven't been too many werewolf movies that were very good, except for "American Werewolf in London" and possibly "The Howling," but that was 20 years ago. So I said, look, "I know this is going to sound silly, but go with me on this. Take it seriously. What if we did a surreal interracial love story, instead of Romeo and Juliet you have werewolves on one side and vampires on the other. I tear that from a page from my own life.

    • Kevin Grevioux: (when asked what his favorite comic book is) I'm a Marvel guy. Superman was my favorite at first when I was a young kid. But even as a kid, after seeing him lift a planet one issue, race around the world in a half a second the next, then get beat by the Toy Man the issue after that, I decided his powers were too magical, inconsistent and almost childish even for comic books. So I graduated to Marvel. They were for older kids and adults anyway.

    • Kevin Grevioux: (about his role as Raze in Underworld) Because the way modern movie-making sensibilities are concerned, if you don't have a name, then who are you? We didn't want to make the part too big, because if we did, they'd get a rapper like LL Cool J. He's good, and so is Ice Cube, but I wanted to play this, so we had to knock it down so it would be unattractive to any rapper.
