” It’s funny because when I got ‘Jarhead’ and ‘Avatar’ and all those movies, ‘Leprechaun’ still to this day airs on BET. I was thinking, ‘Will they just let it go? I finally have a body of work that can speak much better to what I can do than just Leprechaun. “


” My buddies all still make fun of me about the whole ‘Leprechaun’ thing, and I’m proud of that movie. I’m just as proud of that work as I am of anything else that I’ve done. I feel like where I was in my career at the time, I committed to the character. “

” I’m a martial artist. I’ve boxed all my life. I work out. I studied Hwarangdo, which is a Korean style. “


” I want to play roles that I’m proud of, that I feel a certain integrity about, and I want to continue to be truthful in the work that I do. “


” You may have seen me in movies like ‘Fast & Furious’ and ‘Avatar.’ But I wouldn’t have been able to do any of that without hard work and determination. You can accomplish anything if you just stay out of trouble and do the right things. “
