Special Agent Dale Cooper from Twin Peaks
That was just, like, a character where it was: “Oh my God, that’s just the coolest guy in the world! How do I be like him?” The idea of a guy with slicked-back hair, in a trench coat, who worked for the FBI but believed in reincarnation and all religions and using pantheistic faiths to solve the crime and catch the serial killer. Everyone he talked to, he was so committed and so in the moment. That was the role model I chose. In my wildest dreams, I would be as cool as that guy.
