As actors, you like to think about the luxury of having choices in your career, but for the most part you kind of take whatever comes your way and hope that you carved out something that you’re proud of in the end.

I have a really hard time watching gory stuff and horror movies. I have said no to some horror movie things. I wouldn’t rule it out; I could probably be convinced to do one. But sometimes, I just get ill.

I’ve been really lucky because when I go out to L.A. it’s for a job, not to look for a job. That’s the way I like L.A. most – when I already have a job.
