"I was at the bite fight between Evander and Tyson in Las Vegas and I see The Wachowski Brothers; they have their very introverted shy guys thing. Cut to we're working and doing a movie and at the end they presented me with a gift of a beautiful rendering of Neo and Morpheus in the Dojo fighting with a couple of photographs. On the back Larry (Wachowski) wrote, 'I had a dream about a man who wore mirrored sunglasses and spoke in riddles and when I met you and heard your voice I knew that you were that guy.' So he had heard my voice in his head. So that's the deal."
―Laurence Fishburne
