I go to Comic-Con every year, generally with some project of some sort.

In a Western, you don’t over-explain.
I had no intention of being an actor, ever.
Alan Moore’s first choice to be the Comedian… was Burt Reynolds. But I never saw myself as Burt Reynolds; I saw myself as Edward Blake.
I was a huge fan of the original Red Dawn. America and brothers, you can’t beat that in my world. I think there’s nothing greater.
I just didn’t want to get bored playing a character, and that’s kind of the benefit of doing films; you’ve lived with a character for four or five months and that’s it, and you walk away from that character and you feel like you told a story.
I do some of my best work when I’m dead.
Showing fear is like having comedic timing because I think actors have a tendency to go way over the top with it, and that sort of loses steam for what’s going on. The audience sees right through that and laughs at you, so it is something that I’m aware of.
I don’t need to practice my swing. I grew up with a bat in my hands.
A family going through a divorce, a child under attack by a demon, all these things I could relate to.
It’s just as easy for me to be building a fence somewhere and scraping by on unemployment in between doing a guest star spot. I’ve been there.
I know that my foot is firmly wedged in the door, and I’ll be damned if I pull it out, even for a second.
I’ve done tons of guest spots and in parts where the character invariably dies or is dead.
I’ve been dipping my toes back into TV.
I haven’t watched a lot of episodes of ‘The Good Wife.’ I never even saw the show until I signed on, and then I watched seven episodes.
I’m just looking always for characters that change, because I want to get better, as an actor and as a person.
The last decade has been a little rough, so I’m hoping to start this one on the right foot.
The directors you want to work with are in the television world.
I have this weird allergy where metal can’t touch my skin.
If it’s football season, all things sort of stop. I’m from Seattle, so I’ll watch the Seahawks and whatever other game that day is worthy.
Sometimes in TV, it can get really stale, especially if you’re doing these 23-episode years. It’s a lot of work, and to put your family through that, on a location, is not always the greatest thing in the world.
I’m not trying to be an action star, and I’m not trying to be a romantic-comedy guy.
Miami is not optimal for raising a child.
The work I’m doing on ‘Watchmen’ is mind bending and physically just hard.
I’ve been kicking around this business for a long time.
There are a lot of weenie American actors, and a lot of foreign actors are having the luck.
What’s special about Miami is the collision of cultures. And the white sand beaches and fantastic restaurants.
A 12-year-old can watch ‘Spiderman.’ A 12-year-old cannot watch ‘Watchmen.’
I feel like if you shoot one scene all day long or you take two days to do a scene, that scene is going to be stale.
Within a five-month period, I got ‘Weeds,’ ‘Supernatural,’ and ‘Grey’s.’ I think a lot of it had to do with luck.
