I’m of the mindset that most people who have kids are, which is, ‘Hey, I want another me. I like me. I’m pretty cool, and I’ve got really great ideas, and the way I think is the right way to think. Let’s put another one of me out there.’ So I’ll have kids one day.

Occasionally I’ll watch Fox News for as long as I can tolerate it, or CNN. I’ll watch until I get infuriated, but you got to know what they’re talking about and what they’re not talking about.
I went to a bunch of marches in New York and Washington, and you know I believe in the cause, but to march with those people takes a lot of compromise on my end.

I have no hesitation doing children’s movies. Zero. And I don’t even have kids.
I love doing stuff with Todd Barry and Jon Benjamin. We give the stage to good bands and funny people.
Originally they wanted me to be Buster but I really like the Tobias part.
As for Tenacious D, of course it could work as a full length movie; all it requires is a great writer and great director with an ability to think outside of conventional film comedy.
