You try to pick good stories, and that’s pretty much all the control you have as an actor.
I broke my nose and got a concussion when I was 13.
My parents are both really, really funny, and my little sister is a really good painter, and my other sister is a really good writer.
I go on a lot of hikes. I read a lot. I play piano.
My father works for Xerox and fixes those gigantic copy machines that are about 10 feet wide.
Acting is such a weird job.
When I was 16, I was working on ‘Arrested Development.’ My memories of being 16 were just trying to keep up with school while doing the show and trying to be around all those people on the show, as much as I could.
I’m not stereotypically Canadian. I don’t really follow hockey. I don’t feel like anything other than myself, basically.
Since I was 15 I’ve felt kinda like… an old man.
I may not have gone to high school every day, but I spent whole a lot of my adolescence feeling vulnerable and confused and alone… just like everybody else.
The thing is, I really can’t relate to anyone my own age. Not in a superior way – an inferior way, if anything. Socially, I have no idea what my friends are talking about. I don’t listen to any new music. I feel very secluded.
