The saddest thing I can imagine is to get used to luxury.
Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
The single most powerful thing I can be is to be myself.
The most I can do for my friend is simply be his friend.
Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed.
I rarely do any back story. I often get a thick bible of back story, but I can't use it. The back story is a tool of the writer. But I can only act what's in the scene.
I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can't see from the center.
I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying.
Music is pretty intimate stuff and I can only work with very few people: Gonzalez being one, Mocky being another and, on a completely different level, Broken Social Scene. With Broken Social Scene it's not one-on-one, it's a one-on-12. It's very healthy, very comfortable, like a big pot luck supper among old friends.
I used to brag that I can hold up any eviction - even if the landlord had legal rights, I could hold it up for a year.
I've spent so much time with iambic pentameter that I can now recognize it when I hear it in conversation or a movie - it's like a weird, useless superpower.
What I'm trying to do is save and rescue the country if I can, and I'm doing my best to do it.
The funniest memory that I can recall about my school days has to be one incident that involved unfinished homework for numerous days. I didn't do any of my homework for days and days at a stretch, and kept stalling my teacher that I was extremely unwell and was under heavy medication.
I think that's why I'm an actor: so I can tell those stories without having to really live through those stories with real consequences and real stakes, real responsibility.
I think I may have failed at a lot of things, but the one thing I can say, and that I'm proud of, is that I am a good parent.
Los Angeles is the only place that I can honestly say I have ever called home.
