Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1 When I'm onscreen or acting, I swear, I can listen like nobody's business. I listen so well. Every word. Every action. Every physicality. I have a hard time doing that in real life.
2 Every guy should be the owner of a really nice pen. When you put your thoughts down, or whenever you're going to share something with someone, it means something if it bleeds out in a nice ink.
3 On films, you have the liberty of working out the details, the psychology, taking maybe more risks and takes than you can in television just because you can't be figuring things out on the day.
4 I usually find myself hiking in a place that not a lot of people go hiking, just trying to find some solitude. I like being out in the middle of nowhere. Not always, but it's a good place to go to just reflect and think, and it's something I really enjoy.
5 I have to extend my admiration and respect for Sam Esmail, who is a visionary with what he's done with Mr. Robot (2015), and this brilliant resurgence of Christian Slater only helped us get where we are today - very talented individual.
6 I always loved Hanks (Tom Hanks) in Philadelphia (1993) and Forrest Gump (1994) and watching how versatile he was. That shaped my impression of what someone was able to do. Of course, everything De Niro (Robert De Niro) came up with was always something I was taken by.
7 I get to delve into some of the most creative experience I've had as an actor on Mr. Robot (2015). I think there's a wide opportunity for actors to do that now more so than ever on television.
8 I'm just trying to play against ethnicity. I got to play a guy from Louisiana in The Pacific (2010) named Merriell Shelton, and now I'm playing Elliot Alderman.
9 People used to think of me as a comedy actor.
10 I love film. I've always been enchanted by doing film. It's something I grew up watching - classics and directors I admire - so that's something I've always been passionate about.
11 I'm constantly questioning the effects technology has had on our lives and the effect that monetary debt has had on all of us. We keep this as a dark little secret: 'This is how much interest I owe.'
12 I think people have a hard time thinking that I could've done a sitcom.
13 I'm drawn to projects where I play these really complicated characters, but also where I can have some type of influence on affecting what we see as societal norms.
14 It's funny to think that when you get done with an acting job, you're considered unemployed. There are definitely times when those checks don't last forever. I went to college at a private school, and I racked up quite a bit of debt. I was very slow to pay them back.
15 Everything has become so easy. It's great that it's at your fingertips, but I miss those good old days. And we're connected, but it can be very alienating. There is this distance between all of us because we're speaking to each other through cameras and monitors and icons and Emojis.
16 Not long after The Pacific (2010), I began shooting the comedy Larry Crowne (2011) which was also with Tom Hanks, who also directed and plays the title character.
17 I don't use emojis. I go vintage.
18 'Twilight' fans are different. They're very civil with one another. It's a respect because they're all in this together and they all appreciate the same things.
19 I would say The Master (2012) was one of the most inspiring things I've ever got to work on.
20 My sister is an ER doctor, and my brother is a teacher.
21 Of course I would never compare myself to someone who actually went through a war, but I definitely matured shooting The Pacific (2010). I'm more calm and I have more patience.
22 I used to spend a lot of time alone as a kid, creating characters and doing voices in my room, and I thought to myself, I'm either going to go absolutely nuts, or I'm going to find something to put that energy into.
23 Mara Casey gave me my first job. I saw something online, and it was for a part in a Gilmore Girls (2000) episode, and I thought I was right for it.
24 There's fears in everyone's job. Ours are in the limelight, and people think we're incredibly privileged or nuts to do what we do for a living.
25 All you 'Twilight' fans, can't thank you really enough for being so supportive. You're real cool people.
26 I would say 'The Master' was one of the most inspiring things I've ever got to work on.
27 Being on a Paul Thomas Anderson film, the best decision an actor can make is to listen to Paul Thomas Anderson. Because he's probably not going to steer anyone in the wrong direction. I would always say go with your gut on any other movie set, but with Paul, I would say go with Paul's gut.
28 I'm very fortunate to have the privilege of working with directors like Bill Condon and Paul Thomas Anderson, who I think is one of the greatest filmmakers of our time.
