It does help that Dermot is an actor. I hate having to care about that stuff. But I know it's legitimate and he appreciates what the ramifications are.
I'm paranoid, anyway.
It takes a while for me to actually want to do something. I don't find a lot of things that I really want to do.
I... had guys on the set who didn't like me... they weren't interested in the cold character.
I know many great actors who have small heads.
Insecurity is just something that's there all the time. I've never been crippled by it.
I was an English and history major, and I was in a class that culminated in a play at the end of the semester for Father's Weekend-we had a thing at our college called Father's Weekend where we all paid tribute to our fathers.
For a long time Dermot worked more, and I would always go on location with him... Dermot did all the work-I think he commuted maybe 10 times between flying to Omaha from Toronto. It takes effort when you're both working, but we try not to work at the same time.
I never ice skated before... I learned enough to skate for the 20 yards I needed to.
I just never fantasized about Mr. Rogers, but I like his whole vibe.
I don't think I'm very ambitious at all. But I seem to play people who have that quality.
I think people are always looking for a good comedy.
I'm not a public figure at all. I don't really go out a lot to places where there are people like those who sit at the bottom of your driveway.
If you work in casting, it's sort of not cool to want to act. A lot of people think that casting directors are frustrated actors, but it wasn't true with any of the casting people I knew.
Most times when people pitch you as being perfect for a part... they don't look at you as an actor who can transform. A lot of people are so literal.
