[on Amadeus (1984)] Getting the part was just luck, good fortune. I think every actor in the world wanted that part. You name a famous actor from the day, and they wanted that role and they were guaranteed box office. Fortunately for me, Milos (Forman) had something else in mind – thank God! It turns out it was me and Tom Hulce. I don’t know if he knew exactly what he had in mind until he came across the actor he thought seemed to have fit. That’s takes a lot of courage; because the film was bankrolled by one producer, all his own money. It was written by a Brit for a Brit. It was like they were going through the motions – they had to see some American actors. And I was nobody! It was a very long shot. It was out of the question and I just did my best. I gave obviously a good audition for him on camera and then just dismissed it. I really did.
