Personal Quotes (1)

[on his role of Salvatore Romano in 'Mad Men'] I've played tons of different characters and some are gay and some are straight. I thought the character description that Matthew [Weiner] wrote he is clearly gay to modern audiences, but in the 1960s no one knows. Basically, all I did was I had to play as straight as possible and monitor my movements, and how I held my cigarette. That was a little flourish that I could have fun with.
