Michael Ironside's quotes

  • I like to play bad guys, since good guys are always beaten up several times during the movie. Bad guys are beaten only once, in the end.
  • I get to bring these misshapen, emotionally unbalanced people to life.
  • The weirder the role, the more toys around to help suspend reality, the easier it is - and the better I think my work gets. All of these things make it easier to take risks. Children - and actors - take risks all the time.
  • (2011) I always knew I wasn't going to be this major star. My job is just to work.
  • (2000) I've been around a long time. I'm never going to be the lead actor guy. I'm real quiet and real happy and real fortunate to keep working. It's what I do. It's like the circus. I ran away and joined it a long time ago.
