He might mean that there's nothing wrong with his performance, but if he had known how huge classic GBU was going to be it would have changed his acting in a way that not necessarily would have have been good (just speculating). The other possibility is that he actually sees something wrong with his performance; but hey, he's an actor ;)

I honestly don't think Eli could have outdone that performance.  He played it to the tee - don't see how he could have portrayed Tuco any better than he did, but he's the actor and knows more about the business than I do, naturally - lol.  Perhaps he had something in mind that he feels he could have done better, but I just don't see how.   It's too bad he didn't go more into detail about how he would have done it differently.

You have a point Moviesceleton...Wallach, seeing how iconic GBU has become, he probably sees many flaws in his acting.  But this is probably because he has matured over the years and is unfairly picturing how he would do it now, which would probably be great but I thing the anxiousness and energy of his youth when it was filmed makes Tuco much more believable to those of us who have seen it. Plus he knows how to command a scene much better now..(check out his short uncredited scene from "Mystic river"...magic)
