#Quote
1[interview with Dorri Olds, October 2013] My little brother (Christian Long ) and I have always had a very similar sense of humor and sensibility. We have different strengths; he's good at focusing on the story. He's much smarter and good with structure. He's funnier, too. I don't know, I guess he's just better in general. I tend to write too much and look for too many jokes. He's good at centering me and I enjoy writing with him.
2(2010) I love doing voiceover work. I started doing voiceover work when I had just dropped out of school, and the first few professional jobs I got were plays, but then I started making money doing voice-overs. This was in the late '90s, so a big voice I could do was that slacker guy. You know, "Do the Dew, man! Mountain Dew!" That really exaggerated stoner/skateboard guy... I did a bunch with that. "Hey, what's up, bro!" After that, I did voice-overs here and there, and then Mike Judge asked me to do some characters on King of the Hill (1997). I loved the opportunity to just transform my voice. I loved the idea of doing impressions and mimicking and playing around with the spectrum of your own voice. That's what I enjoy most about doing voice-overs. You can be completely unconscious with the rest of your body and just concentrate on doing something with your voice, creating an entire character with your voice.
3[interview with Fred Topel, 6/28/07] I get the worst of both worlds. I look like a geeky hacker, but I don't know anything about computers.
4[interview with Complex magazine, August 2006] I have such thin skin, so I make a concerted effort to avoid reading anything about myself.
5[ talking about his role in the TV series Ed (2000)] Warren Cheswick is sort of the extreme of how I felt in high school. He's awkward, but instead of accepting it, he tries to counter it, which makes him look even worse.

#Trademark
1His boyish looks
2The friendly smile
3His deep yet light-toned voice
