Saving Private Ryan (Film, 1998)
Played the wrong Private Ryan—the one Tom Hanks finds before Matt Damon.
''All I had to do was cry. That's all I did on that soap opera. I could cry at the drop of a hat. But I was so tense, so nervous. Steven Spielberg was very encouraging. He said, 'You're acting it, but whatever you're feeling, it's not coming out.' And then he told everyone to take five, and he took me for a walk and sat me down behind this Army truck and we started talking. He gave me all these things to think about, and I just started crying on the spot. He said, 'You look ready.' And I did it, because he took the time to help me. I ran into Steven Spielberg years later. He said, 'Hey! Do you remember me? [Laughs] Yessir, I do.''
