Sewell: 'I'd Rather Quit Acting Than Play Another Villain'
British actor Rufus Sewell would rather quit his profession than earn more money from playing "Lordly villains". The 39-year-old, who has built his career on bad guy roles in movies such as 2005's The Legend of Zorro and 2006's The Illusionist, is fed up with being typecast and is looking for more challenging work. He says, "If it's a case of paying my bills by taking a part that feels similar to stuff I've done before, I won't pay my bills. I will do nothing for however long it takes rather than do what I don't want to do, because it doesn't make me happy."
