He may be a SAG Award favorite this year for his portrayal of Senator John McCain in the HBO film Game Change, one of several nominations actor Ed Harris has racked up over his storied career, but as of yet, he's only won one of his own.
That statuette came in 1996 for his role in the critically acclaimed docudrama, Apollo 13. And according to Harris himself in an ET interview following the big win--he kind of likes it.
"It's a nice statue," Harris said. "It's nice to be appreciated by your peers, it's a nice feeling."
Of his cast, which included greats like Tom Hanks and Kevin Bacon, and which won an Ensemble Award for the picture that night, Harris offered a great deal of respect and praise.
"As I tried to express in my acceptance speech, these guys, the other actors that I worked with were really wonderful."
And what did the then 46-year-old actor plan to do with his award statuette? Dress-up, apparently.
"That's a good question. Might put some pants on him, put him up on the mantle piece."
See the video above for more reaction to Harris' SAG Awards win, and tune in this Sunday at 6 p.m. ET on TNT and TBS to see if he can add a SAG Award to his already Golden Globe winning role.
