I'm not very comfortable with (watching my performances). When I watch films or tv that I've done, I get very restless and tend to not sit still. A lot of actors are perfectionists, besides merely being egotists. So I see what I like to change about my performance, as opposed to the things that I tried and seemed to have landed well.
(on whether he always wanted to be an actor) It wasn't ever a bug, necessarily. It's something that occurs gradually, at least for me. I knew that acting was something that I really enjoyed, but I also knew that there are a million people that want to do it. And I worked hard at it, and studied in college and did off Broadway plays; and slowly things started to happen. And probably only after 16 or so films am I even comfortable calling myself some kind of actor; partially because of fear of not realizing my potential or achieving some goals that I had set out for myself.
(on his career goals while growing up) To just simply be able to keep working. To do projects that fulfill me, and that's all I could ever ask for.
