I'm really not bitter, but in my last years on As The World Turns, I was quite bored. I was disappointed with the direction in which they took my character and storyline. I'd continue to get the most mail on the show and yet, near the end, I was hardly ever on. 
I do appreciate the fact that the show [As The World Turns] helped me to build up a strong fan following. But I'm not sure that being on As The World Turns did anything for me as far as moving up the career ladder. It was a part of my personal stepladder, though, in that the training I got helped me to learn lines quickly. I also developed a great understanding of camera techniques and lighting. 
I wish I could say that I keep in touch with other people on the show, [As The World Turns] but I don't. I have nothing against talking to them, but I've made new friends and have no particular interest in reconnecting with the people I used to work with. 
[regarding his friendship with actress Alyssa Milano] We're friends. I don't date her. We've been friends for almost eight years. Our dynamic is a non-sexual one. It's kind of ludicrous, I guess. I love her very much, though. 
[regarding filming Once Upon A Time In America] I was a kid, unaware of the stakes or what was expected. I might as well have been doing a school play, because to me, Sergio Leone was just a fat man who ate a lot and had a really cool accent. NOW I understand he's a master artist who I was lucky to be in the presence of and directed by. 
The first thing I think about when I think about my eyes is that they're better than 20/20 and they can see. The last thing would be the color. I'm not interested in hunky [roles]. I've been breaking that mold all along, and I think it may finally be broken. [July 2002]
[on voicing Captain America on Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes] "What's cool about playing Captain America is that he's been incredibly recognizable straight through the rest of the creation and kind of evolution of the Avengers. Cap has been there in a very kind of patriarchal role. To be saved by the Avengers and then to be team leader of the Avengers, without being able to fly or see through anything, is a pretty unique position. I think it's great to have a super-hero who isn't rooted only in what he can do physically. Cap brings the team together with that purity of purpose, his kind of steady hand. Seeing as he comes from another time, I think he kind of brings the group together a little bit by reminding them that it's not always technology and not everything comes from the future. I think thats where he and Tony, he and Iron Man, bump heads a little bit. Sometimes, Cap's old school and Tony's all about new school. But together, they're unstoppable.
The 1966 Captain America show when I was a kid in the late 70s on a local channel that I saw, I was mesmerized by it. I thought it was the coolest thing in the world.
