Bruce Greenwood 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. Greenwood 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!"
