I don't know if it was exactly that. It was a smart thing to do. Mariette is a terrific actress and a wonderful, really interesting person. I happened to do a small part in one of her Polaroid commercials about 25 years ago. With James Garner, yeah. That waiter was me. Did Mariette remember you? I actually thought she did because she gave me such a big hello, but no, she didn't. So what do we do next, if the sequel breaks the ratings record? Of course, for the kids.

Just that he's a very rich man, the owner of a burger chain, who comes into town wanting to be mayor. He's got a great wife and a great daughter, and he's going to try to make a difference in Neptune.
Did they tell you to play it as if your character had some secrets in his closet? It's a very savvy show and one that is written very well, so I expect I'm going to have some good stuff to do. They all have a special place for me, they're all special victories in a very tough business. As a matter of fact, I do.
I look at my [track record] and go, "Bro, I'm the luckiest guy in the world, and I just want to keep doing what I'm doing. Have you seen a script or heard ideas?
Yeah, I've heard a ton of ideas. A movie this big, a franchise this big, it's like building another stealth bomber. You have the whole nostalgia thing working for you.
More than that, you've got this brand that was built up with a lot of good will. Police Academy is still a very popular film in this country, and in the world. Millions of people a year see it.
