The Oscar winner revealed that he was too impressed by the script of Colin's new film 'The Great Buck Howard' that he forced his way to play Colin's onscreen dad. "I selfishly attached myself as the dad. I didn't even ask Colin, I just said, 'Hey listen, I'd like to play the dad.' He kind of rolled his eyes and said, 'Well yeah, I can see why.' And that was that," said Tom.
