#Quote
1 [on why he no longer signs Back to the Future memorabilia] I've decided to do what I want to do in life, and follow my own path as an artist, so I've decided not to participate in any sort of nostalgia in which I'm marginalized as a pop icon of yesteryear. I no longer support in any way an insurmountable archetype, and now exclusively pursue the things that interest me.
2 [on the appeal of Biff in the Back to the Future (1985) movies] People love the character because ultimately Biff is a failure. Biff doesn't win in the end, which is why people like him. He's this horrible guy throughout the movie, but you can be pretty confident that he's going to get slugged in the head and be unconscious at the end.

#Trademark
1 His role as Biff Tannen in the Back to the Future (1985) films.
