The ’80s movie icon, 62, on staying positive, playing a coke dealer and the Disney
reboot of Three Men and a Baby.
Where are you right now?
I’m driving in my car from California to Arizona to visit my sister Susan, my brother-in-law Bob and my mom and my dad. We are pretty simple and sophisticated at the same time.
We love cooking all kinds of Asian fusion, we love to laugh and tell jokes, we love to play board games – Monopoly and Scrabble are our favourites.
And mostly we love to take care of each other, whether it’s picking up dry cleaning for each other or making sure everybody has gas in their cars or when someone needs milk.
Do you mind being called an ’80s icon?
I don’t get offended by anything. There is no doubt about it – I killed the ’80s!
I was really, incredibly successful, both creatively, financially.
The greatest thing that came out of that was that I was able to share all of that with my family, who went around the world, stayed at great hotels and were treated wonderfully.
I’m so fortunate that my fame still has resonance. I am still living an incredibly high quality of life, all because of those iconic movies that not only entertain but are monetarily a financial golden goose. So if somebody wants to call me an ’80s icon, that’s good.
Kim Cattrall turned down the Sex And The City spin-off. Reckon she’ll come back for the delayed Police Academy 8?
I hope she does – a lovely lady and such a good actress. As to whether Police Academy 8 will happen, I suspect you haven’t seen the last of my Mahoney
[his Police Academy character].
There’s a chance that Kim Cattrall and Steve Guttenberg might appear in a future reboot of Police Academy (Picture: Ladd Company/Warner Bros/Kobal/REX)What is the biggest mistake you’ve learned from?
Don’t go around breaking hearts.
Are you involved in Disney’s Three Men and a Baby reboot?
I know nothing about it. I would love to do Three Grandpas And A Baby. I really like those two fellows [Ted Danson and Tom Selleck] and they will be my friends forever.

I play a coke dealer called Jean-Baptiste. He’s a killer, a murderer and a sociopath, a psychopath and a narcissist. I was really inspired by Gary Oldman in True Romance.
As a villain you have two jobs: one is to make it entertaining for the audience to watch you and the other is to make the hero look good. Never forget that a villain should not take over a movie. I love British gangster movies and this one has a real Guy Ritchie type of energy to …read more
