HOW MUCH DID ARAGORN CHANGE YOUR LIFE? It [The Lord of the Rings trilogy] has allowed me to sell books, to have more people come to poetry readings. It interested people in me as an actor and turned them on to writers and people that I like. It allowed me to work with David Cronenberg. If it hadn't been for the trilogy, he wouldn't have been able to cast me in A History of Violence. I look at it as a win-win situation. Yes, it's weird when suddenly people on the street think they know you better than they know their own family. But it didn't affect me that much.

YOU WERE GREAT AS FREUD, BUT I THINK OF YOU AS MORE THE JUNGIAN TYPE. Although I'm interested in a lot of his ideas, I'm probably nearly as skeptical about the mystical aspects of Jung as Freud was. Synchronicity? I don't think there's a pattern to seemingly unrelated events, but I think the connections that we can make are interesting. I'm inclined that way, to favorably compare things or to look for what we have in common. But I think it says more about the person that makes these connections than that it confirms that things are related.

DO YOU HAVE ANY PLACES YOU'D LIKE TO VISIT IN BOSTON? Do you have any recommendations?

WELL, THERE'S ALWAYS FENWAY PARK. UNLESS YOU'RE A YANKEES FAN, TOO. Nope, I'm a Mets fan.

NO! Poor Bill Buckner.
