Drew Live:  Five Minutes with......Vincent D'Onofrio [2000]

Vincent D'Onofrio
DrDrew.Com 2000

Vincent D'Onofrio lies on the floor of his Manhattan hotel room, playing with his 7-month-old son, then gets up to do an interview (which also takes him into another room where he can smoke a cigarette near an open window).

He's in New York to talk about two movies: The Cell, a film in which he plays a serial killer whose brain is invaded by psychologist Jennifer Lopez, and Steal This Movie, a film biography of late political activist Abbie Hoffman. He plays Hoffman and also helped produce the film.

Since his blazing burst into the public consciousness in the 1987-88 season--with Mystic Pizza, Adventures in Babysittin and Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket--D'Onofrio has built a solid reputation as an actor willing to challenge himself in edgy material. With his sleepy eyes and bear-like build, he's as at home playing a tragic romantic lead (as in The Whole Wide World) as he is playing an alien bug inhabiting a human body (Men in Black) or even Orson Welles "Ed Wood).

While in New York to discuss his newest films, he took Five Minutes to talk with What's your favorite thing to do when no one else is around?
Vincent D'Onofrio: The first thing that comes to mind is reading and smoking. Name a guilty pleasure.
VD'O: Sex. What's your greatest fear?
VD'O: Intolerance. What's your favorite part of your body?
VD'O: My cock. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
VD'O: My arrogance. What was your worst day job?
VD'O: Selling plants in the street. What's your idea of perfect happiness?
VD'O: My children having grown up, surviving and being happy. What's something you're good at that's totally useless?
VD'O: So many things. I'll say sleight of hand. What's your favorite album for a sexy evening?
VD'O: Anything by Marvin Gaye. If they were to make an action figure of you, what accessories would it come equipped with?
VD'O: A gag for the mouth and a diet. Who would you like to trade places with for a day and why?
VD'O: George W. Bush, to find out the truth. What Hollywood star would play you in a film about your life?
VD'O: Oliver Platt. you could choose what to come back as, what would it be?
VD'O: A true artist. When you were a kid growing up, who did you imitate standing in front of the mirror?
VD'O: Clint Eastwood. Name a book you've read recently and liked.
VD'O: "American Rhapsody," by Joe Eszterhas. Name an album you've listened to lately and liked.
VD'O: "On How Life Is," by Macy Gray. Finish this line: If we can send a man to the moon, then why…”
VD'O: Why can't we figure out our country's problems? What will you remember most about the '90s?
VD'O: That I became a man.
