I’m a T-shirt-and-Levi’s type of a guy.
I’m still insecure, but when I first started acting, I was really insecure. I glared at a lot of people. I assumed everyone hated me. Somehow that scowl has turned into an acting career.
I’m so fortunate, it’s ridiculous.
I love smashing stuff.
I basically eat a lot of proteins, and I’ve been eating smaller portions of food. I try to eat all locally raised and organic produce.
I’m constantly busy.
I have a cartoon I’m developing with Adult Swim called ‘Monster Town U.S.A.,’ so I’m busy doing that. Trying to do a coffee-table book of my photography that’s been requested of me a couple of times. I’m constantly busy.
I had fears going into television that it might become boring to me, and I always like to be challenged, push myself. You do a film, and you know where you’re going; you have this material to stretch and play with as much as possible because you know how it ends.
I did a film called ‘Floating’ early on that had a scene which was similar to a real-life situation I was in at the time. It involved me having a conversation with my father, who was dying. It was close to home and it made me realise acting wasn’t just making faces for the cameras, it was a real art form.
I’m always taking pictures and travelling with a camera and have so many photos that I’ve done a book.
When you do television, you have this opportunity to drop these subtle hints everywhere. The way you say things, for example, sometimes those seeds turn into trees.
I’ve had shows as a painter, as a photographer, I’ve done shows as a sculptor. I’ve done a lot of different things and it all comes from experiences that you have in your life, in your creative environment. They all help – I don’t even know if they help; maybe they make it worse but they all influence each other, for sure.
I’ve been into Sonic Youth since junior high school. I think I kind of have ADD, so it’s good music for ADD because it just throws you in different directions all the time. I really like Kim Gordon’s voice and Thurston Moore’s voice, and I like the guitars going off on tangents.
Oh I love horror movies, yeah. I think my favorite movie growing up was ‘The Omen.’ I actually wanted to be that little kid.
I think violence has always been popular, way before movies started being made.
