"Right now, I'm very healthy. I have no vices left. Except sugary breakfast cereal. And absinthe, of course."
(On co-starring in NBC's A Family Torn Apart (1993) (TV) which co-stars Neil Patrick Harris): "I wanted to do something a little diverse from that people were used to seeing me do. I'm just a big fan of true-life crime stories. I'm not a violent person".
