You've got to get your mind connected to the workout. Pay attention to what your body's doing. It's about connecting mind and the body. Visualize the muscles moving.
Sometimes you walk out of an audition and you kind of know you nailed it and you're probably going to book it, but you very rarely are told in the room by the people who are hiring you.
I learned construction and carpentry from my father at a young age, so I felt very comfortable and I felt very satisfied when I worked in that field.
As an actor, you try to put a little bit of yourself in everything you do.
I just had a really good time when I did my voice work for 'Call of Duty.' I've had nothing but great interaction with Activision.
A lot of times, actors give so much power to the producers and the producing companies because, quite frankly, they have it. But we don't take the limited power that we have, which the power you initially have is to say 'no.' But 'no' in a positive way.
Don't listen to anybody. Nobody knows the magic bullet. If they did, they'd sell it and make a fortune. Follow your gut. Follow your instincts. Every once in a while, take a chance.
I paid my way through school doing set construction for film and television. I'm a member of Local 44. I was a construction coordinator on 'Beverly Hills 90210' for 4 1/2 years and ran their whole construction program. I did two other pilots as a coordinator for Aaron Spelling.
I think a lot of high-profile artists like to make people think that. 'Oh, I'm trying to choose my next project.' This is a job. Sometimes your next job is so you can provide for your family; your kids are 16 and getting ready to go to college.
Comedy is important! When you're having a stressful day, and you come home, you want to watch something that makes you laugh.
Everybody works in a different way, and I've worked with actors that have no training whatsoever who are phenomenal.
Games are another place to find work, not only the voice stuff but in the motion capture stuff. It's exciting work.
I can't play video games because I get too nervous. It just stresses me out.
I don't know if I would be a good cop. As gruff as I come off, I take things very emotionally.
I want to remind people that there is no soundtrack in 'Southland;' there is no scored music or soundtrack telling you what you're supposed to feel.
