Personal Quote:

I can't believe I'm saying this but I'd like to do an action movie. Yeah (I have done some action), but, I want to be like the Kiefer Sutherland character in 24. Jack Bauer? I want to be like him! I want to kick butt. See more »

Trivia:

Briefly considered taking on the lead role in the boxing drama Against the Ropes (2004). When Pfeiffer passed, Meg Ryan was cast in the film, which went on to become a failure at the box office. See more »
