Personal Quotes
I like vocabulary and I actually read a book called 'Word Freak,' which is about a guy who basically went into competitive Scrabble for a year. But having a big vocabulary and being good at Scrabble are not the same thing.

When I first broke into the acting industry, I taught spinning classes to support myself.

I'm still an actor who wants to work all the time.

I'm flattered if any movie role and my name are mentioned in the same sentence, because there haven't been a ton of them.
