[on being part of the cast of 'Gotham'] Every scene I'm in, I'm with Ben McKenIe. What people don't understand is that one big part of our job as actors, besides getting to know the characters and doing your research, is to be an open, cool human being with the person you're working with for the next month or year or however long the project is. Ben and I have an amazing relationship on screen and off. We read lines together. We make sure we're both prepared when we go to work. He's an incredible patient guy. He's got a big heart. He doesn't get flustered. He doesn't bring a bunch of weird personal issues to the table. He's not indulgent...We're really lucky to have him.
(2000, on quitting drinking in 1991) I moved to L.A. and was just a fuck up. [Leeching] off friends. Getting drunk every day. Pushing too hard. My parents were like, 'What is wrong with you?' And then one day I was at a bar and I remember thinking, If I don't get away, I will die here.
Fair or not, it always sucks when everyone wanders back from Sundance talking about how bad the movies were.
I remember working on movies like Gettysburg and feeling that Jeff Daniels was kind of a mentor.
I think in a weird way that the entertainment industry is strangely more brutally honest than any other.
My Mom, she's from Ireland, coached tennis in Nigeria when she was a Missionary and turned me on to it when I was young.
I'm not a comic book guy. I'm pretty fascinated with the subculture though and I do think that the world of comic books is such a natural transition into film.
Once a film is made and it exists, someone somewhere is going to watch it and that is kind of the magic of it all.
There were a lot of reasons I chose "Grounded for Life": my family was close by and I didn't have to travel, and I loved the cast so much.
(About "Grounded for life"): Well Bill Martin and Mike Schiff were the creators and they knew we had to do a family show. Everybody came at it from the angle of having been a kid and a teenager.
Young actors are pretty fantastic. I can't even imagine doing stuff like that when I was a kid.
With acting, you gotta wait until someone gives you a role in a play or movie. With writing, you're not dependent on others, you don't have to wait. You can sit down and just create.
Follow your deepest dream, the one you had as a kid...but stay focused.
