Rocky: You know, there's an old saying, most great careers are 15 to 20 years in the making. In our American Idol type of society these days, it's kind of like, "Hey, I've been waiting 6 weeks for fame and success. How come things haven't taken off?" For me, in the 19 years I've been in this town as an actor, I've seen the hottest names come and go. There's an art to being a good actor, there's an art to being a celebrity, and there's an art to longevity. Samuel L. Jackson is a friend of mine, and he's one of the few people who have mastered it all. He's always good, he stays current, and he understands the public. It's the art of surviving in this town.
