Personal Quotes (4)

Scientology delivers what it promises under the guise of tearing away falsity, neuroses, psychoses. It creates a brainwashed, robotic version of you. It's a 'Matrix' of you, so you're communicating with people all the time using Scientology.
[in 2015] I'm a lucky man. I've got a wonderful wife, and two great children, I got a great job, the only thing in 'What's life without conflict?', is that I live in California normally, but I work in Chicago, so I'm not able to put all the pieces together, but all the pieces are there.
A lot of politics in my mother's side of the family. My great grandfather was the District Attorney of Chicago, then he became the governor of Illinois, and then the senator of Illinois.
[on his Chicago P.D. character Hank Voight] What I tried to do was to keep the character who started out as a bad guy and as you got to know him more, you got to at least understand his motivation. So on the outside he might look overly violent and selfish, but he does violent things, he'll hurt somebody to protect others from being hurt. He'll take money, not so he can get a boat, but so he can help somebody who needs it. And so nobody is who they seem to be, is kind of what I hoped a lot of this show would be about. If you can understand somebody, you can understand them, and then you can love them. It's easy to look at something from the outside, "Look at that, I don't like him", and then we have war. And so I'm trying to get people to take a look at their neighbors and themselves and each other in a more understanding way.
