[on if he prefers to play edgier twisted characters] Well, I’ve been cast as them… and I like to work, so I take those roles. You know, you try to be diverse, and try to have fun and round things out.

I’m formally trained, I don’t know what classically trained really means. I’ve worked with Sanford Meisner. And I’ve worked at Circle Rep with Marshall W. Mason and Lanford Wilson and some really good people. I was lucky. I had a lot of really good influences.

I prefer film to the stage. I always like the rehearsal better than I like performing.

I’m a whore. If they have a check and camera and a script and stuff for me to say, I am mostly there, unless I just can’t take it. No, really, I do like to work. It just depends on whether there is a whole lot of stuff for me to choose from, because if there is I am choosy. If there’s not a lot of work, then I try to find some redeeming value in the parts being offered. If it is awful, then, of course, I can’t do it. But I have to say, I am pretty lucky in that there are usually things coming in. That said, sometimes it is slow.
