Personal Quote:

[on adding a contemporary viewpoint to the series 'Bates Motel'] There's a certain amount of baggage, obviously, that comes with working in the 'Psycho' environment. Setting it up this way gave us the license as storytellers to tell a really interesting character-driven psychological thriller. Making it contemporary liberated us from the original movie.

Trivia:

Frequently noted (or mocked, by his co-writers) for his resemblance, both in voice and appearance, to Ted Danson. See more »
