When I did ‘Alien: Resurrection’, a lot of the guys worked on planned production, and one of them was really into comic books and would draw all sorts of characters, and I was impressed with his sketches.

I find that ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Alien’ actually have a lot in common in that they’re both so naturalistic in the performances. It feels like people you could be hanging out with right now in this room, yet they’re on a spaceship or killing ghosts. But the way they talk is never heightened or otherwordly.

I just watch movies I like over and over. It seems to be a lot of sci-fi stuff. My favorites are probably – besides the first two ‘Alien’ films, I watch ‘2001’, I watch ‘Star Wars’, the first ones, because those actually had a huge effect on me as well, ‘Empire Strikes Back’ especially.
