| Even my agents say, We don't know what this business is anymore.
| I like playing flawed characters, people who aren't perfect.
| We had training camp for a week, and we used the actual military drills of that period. We didn't have to work out much after hours, because going up and down hills all day was a good workout in itself.
| I guess if I weren't an actor, I'd be a history professor.
| I have family obligations and all that stuff. I get my kids six weeks in the summer, which is a real intense period of time. I'm with them every minute of the day.

| To people outside, they think, Gee, that's great. You get to go here and there. The other side of that is our expression, This is location, not vacation.
| While I was doing these plays in the beginning, I wasn't getting paid. I thought of it more as a hobby. Then I realized how seriously a lot of these people took what they were doing.
| In this industry, the new owners prefer to kill anything they weren't responsible for.
