Mafia Knowledge Helps James Woods Play Character in 'Shark'
He explains, "When I was a kid, my aunt was secretary to the public defender for 28 years and I was around the legal system. She was sort of the Switzerland of Rhode Island, and Rhode Island was what we used to call the parking lot of the Mafia. Whenever the Mafia wanted to talk to the Feds (FBI) or the superior court judges, or whatever, they always did it through my aunt.
"I learned early on that justice is a lot about negotiation. It's not dissimilar from our business in Hollywood. It's full of a lot of strange and scurrilously awful people who somehow manage to keep the wheel going. That's how this character operates."
