Personal Quotes (1)

[on '21 Jump Street', the TV series] In the pilot, I fought with the lead character. After we shot the scenes, we had to re-shoot everything because they recast the lead actor and brought in Johnny Depp. I remember it well because I got to say, 'Get him off me. I feel like a child molester'.
