    • Sam: (on preparing to play a sex addict in Choke) Well, I don't think I've ever been a sex addict, so the role took some work. I couldn't really identify with what my character was doing at first. I went to some sex addict rehab meetings just to find out more about what these people are all about.

    Sam Rockwell is a true actor. You really believe that he got into acting because he loves it for what it is. You'll never see him in any tabloids and you won't hear any gossip about him. In his roles, you sense more realism than many other actor's who are considered more talented than he. Of all of his roles in all of his movies, my favorite has to be "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind."moreless
