  1. I want to do good work, but having kids and a life outside of that is important, too. If you don’t have anybody around who loves you, then what’s it all for? You’re just lonely in the end.
  2. Fergie will sing ballads to the dogs and they’ll sit there rapt. You know your wife’s a star when she keeps the dogs entertained for 20 minutes.
  3. You know, it takes a while to get used to — it’s a whole group of people with all these ideas and after you sort of navigate your way through the first few episodes it becomes collaborative and creative.
  4. Finally, you get the job, and you think you’ll be dancing on the ceiling, but I just wanted to go take a nap. It was just like a weight had been lifted off or something.
  5. I’ve always wanted to be a dad. I just can’t wait to have a little rug rat running around. I used to want five or six kids, but maybe I’ve become too self-absorbed over the years. I think two would be perfect.
  6. Soap operas are such a great way to break-in to the industry. The diminishing landscape of daytime TV means it’s going to be harder for young talent to get discovered.

  8. I really feel like a regular dude who happens to be incredibly lucky.
  9. When I was on ‘All My Children,’ we did a thing for ‘Seventeen Magazine’ where a girl won a date. I went to her prom with her in Alabama, and she was a sweetheart. I didn’t move to Alabama and I didn’t buy a farm there, but we still keep in touch.
  10. I love football and beer and have a normal girlfriend.
  11. My wife and I like to go to church if we’re in town. On Sundays, I try to be as chill as I can, whether I’m watching golf or barbecuing.
  12. I think Paul Newman had an amazing career. I also love what Tom Hanks has done. He has always made very grounded movies that have something to say. He has found a way to make blockbusters that are about something and that is what I want to do.
  13. There’s a tendency to fall into certain habits, but if you tell yourself not to do that and if you don’t stay there too long — I think if you start staying for too long, you tend to fall into certain bad habits, and I tried not to do that.
  14. I’m sort of an old man, always tinkering in the backyard. Since I grew up playing outdoors, I still like to plant things, sit out on the deck, or go hiking.

  17. I grew up like Huck Finn, always outdoors, exploring, collecting frogs — there was space everywhere. I want my kids to experience that too. I love being outside.
  18. Relationships, if you want them to work, take work. The biggest thing that I learned growing up, and even now, is if it’s right, it’s worth it. It’s just a matter of finding that person you want to be with.

  20. ‘Vegas’ was something very close to me. I had such a blast doing that. I’m still a little upset that we never really got to shoot that final episode. So many people were invested in it. I’ll always be sad about that.
