You want to know the truth? I'm one of the most juvenile people I know. Truly, I am stuck in like a 12 year old state. I mean, I'm goofy. If I had to describe myself, that's the only way I can put it. And the people who know me, even the people who just know me a little bit, they couldn't deny that I'm just a goofy guy.
Sure, I think everyone fantasizes about being bad, and the baddest thing you can be is in the mob. I do, too, sometimes. And I think even women wish they were going out with the guy from the mob 'cause he's cool and has money and is scary. But I think the idea of converting him into a choirboy is the true appeal.
I don't know if I'm king, but I'm definitely the court jester of critically acclaimed canceled TV series. But what are you going to do? I try to have a sense of humor about it, because there's no rhyme or reason sometimes why a show succeeds or doesn't. It's just the nature of the business. Luckily, I've been able to keep getting great roles and I continue to somehow survive through it all.
Maybe the real reason I'm a performer is because I'm the youngest of three kids. Maybe it was a way to get attention. And ultimately, as I look back on it now, I'm kind of curious. Maybe that's it. As an actor, I can investigate and analyze many different ways of living, the psychology of different people. I really don't want to get too pedantic here, but I just truly enjoy exploring other lives. That's always been fun for me.
