One of the greatest and somewhat typecast actors of our time, Edward Norton's performances in films such as American History X and Fight Club earned him a reputation for being superb at acting in roles with multiple personalities. Then, everyone saw "Death to Smoochy" and immediately and unanimously stripped him of any and all status. But, well, life's a bitch ain't it?
"I don't smoke and I don't want to smoke. I am not a fan of gratuitous smoking in films."
-Edward Norton, revealing the one weakness that cannot be exploited by an outside source, unless that person can trick Norton into entering a hot box. However, he is still open to attack from Tyler Derden.
"The more you can create that magic bubble, that suspension of disbelief, for a while, the better."
-Holy. Fucking. Shit. This guy can perform defensive magic spells. I guess all that shit in "The Illusionist" was for real. I smell a role as Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher in the next Harry Potter movie.
"Nobody makes me uncomfortable here. It's a place where you can be eternally anonymous."
-The reason he loves living in New York City, and frequenting cult meetings.
Basketball - In American History X, Norton challenges the members of a rival black gang to a game of hoops, with the loser forever banned from the coveted run-down court. His nearly single-handed victory is especially remarkable given the fact that up to this point in the film he has never been seen so much as touching a basketball, and he never plays again.
