I am used to coming in second and then all of the sudden finishing in first because nobody expected me to do it. Kind of like David and Goliath, you know. I’m not the giant.
When we talk about Oscars, it’s almost as a symbol of excellence, and the American public and the worldwide public accept that symbol. So, a movie like ‘The Artist’ that costs $14 million, has to go out and compete with movies that cost $140 million. How does David deal with Goliath?
Everybody pulls for David, nobody roots for Goliath.
It’s gone on my whole life, this David and Goliath syndrome that a lot of these smaller guys always have. They think the only reason I’ve ever had any success in my career is because of my physical size. And you know what? If that’s the case, so be it. I really don’t care. Because I have that size.
Once you understand that Goliath is much weaker than you think he is, and David has superior technology, then you say: why do we tell the story the way we do?

David – the man after God’s own heart – was a man of war and a mighty man of valour. When all Israel were on the run, David faced Goliath – alone… with God – and he but a stripling, and well scolded, too, by his brother for having come to see the battle.
What has been happening more lately – of course, I also put in my bio, I say I do the voice of Goliath, but some people go – you know, I say something, and it’s a funny thing when you work in this business, people will talk out loud in front of you like you’re not there.

I thought it was a classic David and Goliath story, and I was fully onboard Team WikiLeaks. I was very pro the leaks, barring the redaction issue. But I see WikiLeaks as a publisher.
The most fascinating and satisfying encounter so far was the goliath tigerfish of the Congo. I first caught one in 1991, and then again while filming the second season of ‘River Monsters’ in 2009. Its appearance is quite unbelievable, like a giant piranha, with inch-long interlocking teeth.
Americans enjoy the exciting, cinematic vision of a squad of muscle-bound Goliath boasting Olympian speed, strength, and precision – a group whose collective success is the inevitable consequence of the individual strengths of its members and the masterful planning of a visionary commander.
‘Goliath’ is about nine, 10 minutes long, and the end of it is so interesting, we didn’t really want it to be used as a single.
Goliath was a champion, a monster who had never been beaten, and then this young guy, David, came forward, a child who believed in God and did it.
I love an underdog. No, I don’t necessarily mean the cartoon. I mean like David, as in Goliath, or the Bears, as in The Bad News Bears.
