    • Lou: (asked who – or what – has had the biggest influence on his career) Probably my mentor, Adam Rourke. He's no longer with us, but this was the guy who was a contract player with Universal in the '50s, did all the biker movies in the early '70s, and he taught me not only acting and film technique, but respect for the craft. Beyond that, he was always honest with his students about his mistakes. About the cost of arrogance, the cost of addiction, the cost of playing the game as opposed to paying attention to the work. His lessons have been with me forever.
