There are a couple of teachers I have had without whose influence I would not be as happy with who I am.

If I couldn't broadcast baseball games, I think I would make a good impression on people.

When I was eight years old I went to visit my brother who was working on a movie of the week with my mother and I saw how much fun he was having and I decided I wanted to try it too.

I still have not given up the idea of becoming a journalist, but at 17 I decided to follow my heart and stay in Los Angeles with my girlfriend as opposed to going to Johns Hopkins.

I used to get some flack from my agents because I wouldn't even audition for parts where the hero uses violent force to be a hero.

I technically have two last names, which is a lot of fun when you're making airline reservations.
