The 49-year-old continued, "I didn't get it. I never got offered that. And as I've said before not even half jokingly if it's true, if that was an offer and it didn't come to me, I've got to go back and go, 'I've got to meet in an alley with that agent.'”

"I did turn down L.A. Confidential, I think it was the Guy Pearce role,” he remarked. “And that's a movie I really, really liked, and that one sticks out to me as one I'm like, 'Ooo man, that would have been a really good one to have been a part of.'"
