Personal Quotes (2)

I tend to (get cast) as dark characters, and I'm more drawn to those characters anyway - they're usually more interesting. Plus, I got this deep voice from my father, and the combination of the timbre of my voice and my inflections tends to make people feel that there's some darkness there.
When I was a kid, I liked Superman. When I got a little older, I liked Wolverine. And then I found girls.
