On his versatile career:
“The key to being allowed to do anything is to keep changing so you don’t get defined as one thing. After I started doing comedies, I got lots of offers to do comedies. But that’s the time to go out and try to do something different.”

On deciding to become an actor:
“When I was a teenager, I worried, ‘What should I be? I should pick a career.’ At some point, in college, I figured out that the only people who get to try their hand at everything — cops, crooks, singers, race car drivers, vampires — are actors.

“You spend six months doing the most exciting parts of whatever occupation it is you’re playing. And then you move on. I turned the fun part of my life into my work.”

On not being recognized:
“That just means I’m doing my job.”
