Quotes

#Quote
1I've played so many jobs where I'm fearless, but it's far from me. I wish I were like that in real life.
2(On Twilight) That's opened up so many doors, and I'm so grateful for what that movie's done. It was really kind of a special little slice of life that brought me where I am today. Thankfully I got to do other things.
3(On being frequently cast as a villain) It's probably, I'm not going to say the easiest thing for me, I don't know, I enjoy it the most. I don't know why, I think it's that there's more to grab onto, I guess. You can use your imagination a little bit more, where as if they're good guys or heroes, they always have to abide by a strict set of rules. To this day, I still haven't been able to figure out how to work around those. It hasn't gotten fun for me, the good guy. Maybe because I don't know how to do it, I don't know. With the bad guys, there seems to be more creativity and imagination involved in justifying what they do. That's what people hire me for, I'll take it.
