"Five years was a great time to be on the show," the Bodyguard star says in a Variety Actors on Actors conversation with Amy Adams. "It helped me so much with my career and experience. I learned a lot from shooting 30 hours of television. You really start to learn the trade doing that. And then I was thankful to leave it." He adds: "The actors on it now must be 11 years into playing these characters. Give these guys some medals, because that is a marathon."
