The only thing I say a prayer for is for health and safety for my family. Some people even include happiness and a hope for something else. Not me. I think everything else is on your own. That's the way I look at it. If you can just maintain health and safety, you're in good shape. And anything else, you have to create.
My passion is becoming involved in good work, whether that means as an actor or writer or director or producer or all - that is not as important to me.
If you like vanilla, you're not going to like 'Breaking Bad' - you need to like a specific flavor that is unusual, that is different, that takes risks.
I enjoy doing comedy for the fact that you go to work and you laugh. That's a good combination.
Money has never been my primary goal.
If you work hard, you have a better chance of producing something that you're proud of. If you don't, you won't. It's really simple.
In order to be an actor you really have to be one of those types of people who are risk-takers and have what is considered an actor's arrogance, which is not to say an arrogance in your personal life. But you have to be the type of person who wants the ball with seconds left in the game.
