If you serendipitously end up in an elevator with Steven Spielberg, make an impression. British actor David Thewlis did, though it may not have been quite the one he wanted. In 1994, Thewlis was leaving an award ceremony in New York after accepting a prize for his lead role in Mike Leigh's working-class dramedy "Naked. " He found himself riding down with Spielberg, who had just received an award for "Schindler's List," and the two had a brief, unremarkable exchange. But a few months later, Spielberg called him with an odd request: The director wanted Thewlis to play a man who turned into a dog. "Is it something about my character in 'Naked' that makes you think I'd be good in that?"
