On playing a gay character on Desperate Housewives: What I really liked about it was that he was already developed as this strong little bastard who runs over old women, and now he's developing into a gay youth. I'm glad they had that other story line first, so people didn't categorize him as 'that gay kid'. (Out magazine, April 2006)
