#Quote
1[on David E. Kelley] David tapped into something that nobody else really knows about me, which is that I really am a very shy guy. I get to play around with that a lot, and this is really three characters in one that he has written, so it's just wonderful.
2[on Malcolm in the Middle] It was a huge education for me in the business out here, I would see Bryan Cranston being so nice to everybody. He told me, 'I made a deal, if I was ever the lead on a show, I would not be an ass.'
3Look not into the eyes of the hungry, for despair is a contagious disease.
