Personal Quotes
I like to act. Every other aspect of show business I find uninteresting.

The best complement I ever got from the public or producers or directors is that I just totally blend in and become the character and they don't notice me and that the play happens or the movie happens or the TV show happens.

[on his career] If I had any other talent or salable commodity I probably would have gone into it. I mean, aside from the modelling, yeah.

I'm not a fan of any genre but am a fan of movies that are intelligent and/or funny. That goes across all genres: a horror movie, a zombie movie, alien invaders, chick flick, or raunchy comedy. If it's well done, I'm a fan.

People evolve and it's important to not stop evolving just because you've reached 'adulthood.'
