Personal Quotes (6)

Awards are not something that I measure my work by. I've been so fortunate, and I've gotten to do such terrific things, that it seems petty to look back and say, 'Oh, I should have gotten that prize.' I've been so blessed, it's hard to look back and think anything but that, so I have no disappointments.
Cats and I have an understanding, but we choose not to interact often.
I can clap with one hand.
Life is very, very great. I have no complaints.
I don't go around scowling at people. I think I'm a nice guy!
I like auditioning! A lot of people hate it, but I like it. Especially like right now, I'm not shooting a show so you get to act. You get to do that stuff, kind of treat everyone as 'All right, throw the paint against the wall and see what I can do with this and what people say.' I think it's a great mental workout because you have to ready something, learn something fast. It's good to stay on your toes and keep sharp if you're auditioning. [interview with Backstage Magazine, June, 2013]
