Ignorance is bliss. I wish I still had some.




I've always really been into science, and in the last five years I've gotten into theoretical physics and the origins of the universe.




Any show that's bringing in a young audience is doing a good thing, because that's the only way that theater will continue to grow. All the other audience members are going to be dead soon!




Now and then I find a kitschy series I love.




I feel like I'm a good actor, but I wouldn't call myself a gifted actor.




You know, sometimes I get moments of inspiration when I'm writing something and then the task seems so daunting that it just kind of scares me away.
