Oh every day I fight for the integrity of the character and where I want it to go. Sometimes I think the writers are better at writing story than dialogue, or maybe I just understand the character better than they do. But they do allow us to collaborate. I just go to see Nick's apartment after 43 episodes, and I had to tell them to get rid of some stuff.
I think people would be suprised at how much we curse when we screw up. I'm like somebody with Tourette's Syndrome.
Another challenge? Getting up at 6:30 in the morning to go act. It's not fun acting that early in the morning or acting at 4 A.M in the middle of the night or in the morning when you're really tired. That's a challenge. What a luxurious problem to have.
Many forms, sizes and colors, I think there are heroes in sports, in life...It would be cliché to say my dad, my granddad. I think I'm a fan of people who were brave, my aunt, my grandmother, those are my heroes.
On his character Paramedic Greg Powell from ER: I got a lot of recognition from that role. I mean, like, I'd be in a Burger King getting a burger and the girl at the window goes, 'Hey, you're the guy who kissed Julianna Margulies on ER'.
