Being a dad is the best thing that ever happened to me. It changed my life entirely.
I had some downtime with my career and... I got complacent.
I have a band called Sons of the Lawless.
Oh yeah, 'Starship Troopers' was one of the best experiences of my life, and I made some lifelong friends.
I go on at least 2-3 auditions a week in the pursuit of more work. So I'm constantly working on material and constantly honing and trying to perfect a craft that is never perfectible - it's always new, and it's always different. It's always a work in progress.
I don't have a favorite role because there's been so many films that I've done that I've really enjoyed.
I like showing the gritty truthful dark side of humanity.
I'm purely most happy on a film or television set. That's where I feel I am home.
The first film I was in was called 'Straight Time.' I was five-years old, and I was playing my father's son.
I had my airplane, and I'd use it as a car whenever I could. If the drive was going to be longer than an hour, I was flying the plane instead. And in California, it's really easy to have a drive longer than an hour.
I just didn't lock into being in the right role in the right big movie and it going huge. I did never really make the leap to hyperspace. Who's to say that it can't still happen. I just enjoy working, and feel fortunate to be doing the things that I am doing.
I love... What's gratifying to me is when you make/create a character and a human being, a person who lives entirely and who has their own existence, just merely from the words on a page.
If you're not in someone's face, they're not going to remember you. So get yourself back into an acting class; get a coach. Do those things you did when you were 20 and wanted it so bad.
Let's say you would see me in a lot more big movies had I done movies that I'd been asked to do playing bad guys. Now that I have a child on the way, I think that you'll probably be seeing me play more bad guys. If that's what's going to put bread on the table, that's what I'm going to be doing.
Oh, my father's had a huge, immense impact on my career. I grew up on movie sets that he was working on, and it just become a part or was a part, was the only part of my life because I spent my whole childhood traveling and being on film sets.
