[2006 Park City TV interview]: Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn't work hard.
[on playing Ash in Blood Fare and Pun in None the Less]: I must have no vanity at all, because recently, I've been getting selected for these roles that require me to have my hair in some crazy fashion and the weirdest costumes ever. I love it!
[Conversation with former writer/director Kelsi Swensen] If I added up the money i made from acting and divided it over the hours I've put in... then It'd probably be $0.0000001 an hour... but I don't care, its what I love to do and its what I'm going to do and any focus on a "fall back" career is a waste of my time.
[on being nicknamed "The Next Tom Cruise"] I'm honored! The man has had an amazing career and to be recognized with the potential to be that caliber is amazing!
I celebrate "failure", because it means I did something. I welcome failure, because every time I do... a million other successes take its place.
I didn't get into this business to sell things. I got into this business to tell stories. Commercials don't tell the stories I want to tell.
