I think those characters are a lot more fun to watch. One of the big things throughout the movie is that you would run into these moments where one characters would insult another character.

In any other movie {The Way of the Gun} the Taye Diggs character would be so angry and so bent on killing Sarno for all the things that he says to him, or desperate for revenge on Parker and Longbaugh for what they do. But that makes him a stupid character. If you lead with your emotions in those situations you're going to get killed.

What I'm interested in is characters who know how to master or control their emotions, because frankly that's common sense."

Too late for him to help cull Kylo Ren down to a more compelling character.
