I tend not to be someone who's on all the time, or is always trying to make other people laugh.
I've thought a lot about success, because it's very strange to me that I've been successful.
Taste in comedy, like fashion, changes all the time.
Once I moved to Chicago and started trying to get acting jobs, I just tended to book more things that were comedically based than anything else. I never had the preconceived notion, 'I will be a comedic actor.' I just thought, 'I'll go into acting and see what kind of work I can get.'
I think anyone loves to play a character that is either evil to a certain extent or has a real definable character flaw. Those are always really fun, and, I think, funny.
I'd love to do Broadway some day. Before I started doing television I was just a primarily a stage actor, but I haven't done it in a while.
How did I end up in films with people like Keira Knightley... all these beautiful leading ladies and me - it's kind of shocking.
I don't think of myself as funny - I don't fill up a room with my humor... I would fail miserably as a stand-up comedian.
