is getting on Tommy Lee Jones
's nerves again. Last seen
together in the box office smash Double Jeopardy
, Greenwood and Jones
reunite in the military action thriller Rules of Engagement
tells TV Guide Online that the rematch was "a fluke. Good fortune that we did
two back-to-back [films]. I think he did another in between so it wasn't back-to-back for him but he works more than me."
How does Greenwood occupy his time between films? "Oh, stew about not
working. Try to get a job. Play guitar. Work in my garage." The reclusive
St.Elsewhere alum doesn't carry his ego in his toolbox; in fact, he has
trouble watching his own work. "I've never sat back and said, 'That was good.' I'm always curled up. I only see the mistakes and the stuff I could have done better. I don't know many actors who sit back and watch themselves and pat themselves on the back."
Does the actor hope that if Rules is a smash perhaps his visibility will
increase? "You always hope, but if I had those expectations I'd just be
dashed. I don't believe, until I'm working, that it's going to happen. If I'm talking to somebody about a script and an offer has been made and a deal has been struck, until I'm actually working I keep my mouth shut."
Greenwood's next gig is a return to the role of Home Depot customer. "We just moved, so I'm putting in molding and dry wall, and building cabinets." At least until the next director screams "Action!"
