Quotes

#Quote
1[on doing movies after NYPD Blue (1993)] It really comes down to the fact that, because I was perceived as a bad guy for leaving the show, I think people were rooting against the movies. That was really unfortunate.
2I was a guy who abandoned a TV show. I didn't care about people. They didn't want to see good things happen to me.
3If you're not willing to risk, there are no rewards.
4[on his successful comeback in Hollywood, as the star of CSI: Miami (2002)] For somebody who fell to the place that I fell in terms of unemployment and a damaged reputation, the fact that this town was willing to give me another chance is incredible.
5NYPD Blue (1993) will not be successful when I leave.
6There have been times when it's been hard for me to find work. I'm still a young man and I have a lot to give. If I don't get any more chances on a major level, there's not much I can do about it.
