#Quote
1 [on his work ethic]: There's always the ongoing actor frustration of finding the great role to do next. I don't go to work a lot. I wait as long as I can until the money runs out or a great part comes along.
2 Wherever I go for the military, they always call me Lt. Dan. They just can't help it.
3 Sometimes you're in great demand. Then suddenly your career hits the brakes.
