About his part he said: "In America on television on 'Saturday Night Live', I play a character sometimes called 'The Continental' and I felt this job [of Bevalaqua] came quickly and I'm not much of a student of life so I just decided to do a kind of extension of 'The Continental'. He's a bizarre man... this was an opportunity to play someone who was very vulnerable and funny. Of course it was a very good part. Not the kind of part that I get too much."
