Ron: (when asked if his activism influences his choice of roles on stage) There are only so many good scripts and so many movies and there are so many people ahead of me that it's not a matter of my choosing. I wish it were. But it's not. It's interesting to me when a journalist asks an actor, "but why did you do that?" If you're Jack Nicholson or Tom Cruise, that question makes sense. But for 75% of the actors who are doing well, you kind of know why you did it because it was offered to you or it was the best thing available to you. I'm an actor by calling, and I'm an activist by inclination but I try not to confuse the two. Maybe if I had more integrity I would confuse the two more and integrate them more. I don't make judgments based on that.
