Quotes

[On his 2003 resolution] "To be in a movie or a play which doesn't require me to take off my clothes. Unless, of course, I don't get another job... In which case I'll be half-naked and whole-heartedly depressed for the rest of my career."

"I would never abandon Broadway. I do want to expand my horizons and do more film work, but I'm interested in good roles, wherever they may be. I will always come back, even if I went to LA for a job."

" I refuse to acknowledge the gap between theater and film. I want to do both, on both coasts. So I will, unless I never get a job again, in which case I'll go back to my first career choice: chimney sweep."
