#Quote
1What's not to love about Maggie? I mean, she's the consummate professional, and she can kick some serious butt. She has something that's real- she's very caring. And she brings those emotions to her character.
2While watching the New Orleans Saints (on television), I got angry and punched my bed, and then my remote control flew up and hit me in the head. My girlfriend didn't stop laughing for an hour.
3(On moving when he was younger) " My sister and I were the only white people in school. It was the nicest group of kids I've ever run into."
4(On girls) " The first thing I notice is their eyes and smile. I'm not a big make-up fan; I like them to be natural."
