Personal Quotes (3)

(On his L.A. Heat (1996) character, "Chase McDonald")" He's impulsive and a bit thoughtless. He acts first and thinks later. He doesn't know the word "consequence. I really enjoy playing him".
(On playing "Tarzan", following in the footsteps of arguably the most famous portrayer, Johnny Weissmuller) "It's a bit like playing "James Bond" after Sean Connery.
The good side of television is that your character grows and changes with you. And you have a check assured at the end of the month. The other side is that...it can sometimes become boring if it lasts for a long time, after you've done every possible thing with the character. With film, it isn't much of a problem because you only play the character for a short time before moving onto something else.
