‘The Bank Job,’ for me, was a great opportunity for me to do some good acting, you know?

Mitt Romney‘s only bottom line is the one at the end of his own bank statement. The problem is that he confuses his own narrow, self-interest – and that of people like him – with the national interest. He thinks as long as we do right by the Mitt Romneys of the world, America will be just fine.
The World Bank can only survive if it’s spending money.
I always feel like any criminal who doesn’t have a mask on is dumb: particularly the ones who don’t realize that all mini-marts have cameras. I find that so hilarious. Or bank robbers without a mask. You’re like, ‘Have you seen no movies?’

The reason that most British actors are better than most American actors in the end is that they don’t make any money.

We have to change public perception of ex-convicts. Most Canadians don’t realize that when you come out of prison, you’re a complete pariah.

Even the National Bank of Romania doesn’t have the huge resources needed to intervene in the market and keep the leu at an acceptable level, because they’re drawing close to a floor below which the bank’s reserves can’t drop.

Treat your online affairs as part of your affairs that need to be in order – your bank, your Internet bill – you need to have people who know what you want.
Manhattan is just all bank branches.

There was a time in L.A. when I drove to 7-Eleven to go grocery shopping, and I locked my keys in my car, which wasn’t insured.

I never had to say to myself, ‘OK now, I’ve got to grow up and work for a bank, or go and sell real estate.’ I never had to make that kind of break.

Bank failures are caused by depositors who don’t deposit enough money to cover losses due to mismanagement.
