Ridley Scott: Scott casted Rza as a narcotics undercover cop in 2007's American Gangster. Rza admired how he gave specific direction to his actors but still left certain things open to their interpertation. "Plus the guy made Blade Runner ," adds Rza. "Even though that film was considered a disappointment when it was first released it's now considered a classic. You have to realize your vision the way you see it. Eventually the rest of the world will catch up."
