During a recent interview with Vulture to promote his new Sundance film Rememory, the 47-year-old actor explained why switching between the two mediums hasn’t thrown him for a loop.

“At the end of the day, they’re very similar.

But on set, you’re dealing with the same issues you do on an indie movie.”

He did however have one quip about how an indie movie compares.

“The salary’s a little different,” he said, smiling.
