"I think that when John started out, he had the desire to be a voice on the radio, but he didn't anticipate a grueling tour schedule and all that. I don't think he necessarily wanted to play live. I had a book listing the gigs that they played back then, and it was unbelievable. In the late '60s he was still driving to concerts himself."

"Well, it's hard to say who John was because he was such a complicated character, ... You know, he represents so many things to so many different people. And that, to me, was why I was fascinated to play him. John's certainly not one-note. As an actor, there was a lot to work with."

"I’m not a singer by any means. If it was a fictional character where it was a made-up voice, it might have been harder. But I had a specific voice to go after, so I had to work specific muscles and really work at hitting certain notes. It was nice to have a recognizable voice as a goal."

"I went to have dinner at their house before I even heard about the movie. We were in their living room and John just started strumming. He said he was waiting for June before he could get his nerve up. And I thought, 'Wow, this is Johnny Cash waiting to get his nerve up. This guy has played prisons and he's nervous.' Then June came in and they started singing On the Banks of the River Jordan and they're looking into each other's eyes, and the connection and love they had was palpable."

"If people want to hear Johnny Cash, he has made a couple of records, they can check 'em out, ... If they want to see him, there's video, there's documentaries."
