There is no handbook about how a career is going to go.
– Gary Cole
I think it had something to do with my love of music, especially rock music.
Being able to fantasize for a couple of days at being a rock singer surpassed most things I’ve done on stage.
Karl Malden was quite a mentor. He taught me things he had learned from being in front of a camera so long.
Then, at some point, you get identified with certain things.
I was a little nervous coming in mostly because my first scene was with Martin Sheen, who I’m a huge fan of.
You need someone to tell you how to do things like hitting your marks, or driving a car so it looks right or getting out of a car so it doesn’t take a million years of screen time.
A lot of actors in my age bracket look at being still standing as pretty good.
If someone comes up to me, 90 percent of the time it’s about Office Space.
I am also a drummer of sorts. I’ve got an electronic set sitting in my bedroom.
When you make a movie, it’s up to so many things and so many people.
I will confess I did none of my own singing. I did all my own costume and makeup, though.
I was initially a leading man, but only on television.
I don’t think anyone sets out to do something bad, it’s just that it’s very difficult.
I still like to listen to the people that I came of age on.
I like the fact that this kind of family has been seen in a movie a million times: teenage kids, the family is a bit strained and they don’t have enough money, but in the background the guy used to be a Gene Simmons type.
I miss everything about Chicago, except January and February.
I just don’t eat too much. That’s never been my problem.
I messed around in high school, but I pretty much put it away until I did a television show in San Francisco.
I love going to concerts, so that whole environment is something that intrigues me anyway.
I grew up with Apocalypse Now and Badlands, so I had a real awe thing going.
You always know when something works it’s a result of everything firing on all cylinders.
You can go out in a good movie and look bad as well.
Yes, I’ve already done a couple of guest voices.
