I’m a little bit superstitious, and I think that just comes from playing hockey. I won’t avoid the number thirteen. A big one for me, though, is walking under a ladder. I’ve always felt like...

I got beat up by the comic-book kids when I was younger! They were cooler than me. Talk about levels of geekdom, I was a couple rungs below the kids who read comic books. Yeah....
The biggest regret I have about ‘Rubicon’ is that we didn’t end it. Sometimes you do these shows and you don’t have the opportunity to get closure. Stories are supposed to have a beginning, middle...
I grew up in a family of actors. I grew up onstage. The choice for me wasn’t, ‘Do I want to be an actor or not?’ I always felt like that’s just ingrained in you,...
I’m a pretty private person, so I’d like to say I’m a good ear and that I keep my mouth shut.

I want to show up to work and take risks. I don’t ever want to play it safe.
