1Known for playing unusual but highly likeable characters
Castle (2009)$100,000 per episode
1[describing how he blew his chance at serving on a jury] We're talking to this judge who belonged on TV. He was handsome, had good hair. He was telling us about the importance of jury duty. I was riveted. He was funny, and at one point they call you back into the room and they're gonna decide whether or not they're gonna use you. I walk in. They're all charming, they're all nice, and one of them says, 'Hey, you're an actor!' I decided to have a little fun and I said, 'Yes, I'm a very good actor, which brings me to the point: I don't know which juror I'm playing. I still didn't get my script.' The judge didn't get it. He looks at me and he says, 'There's no script', I said, 'Oh, improv. Good. Let me give you a little back story to my character. I'm the guy, when they sequester the jury in the hotel, I tie the bedsheets together, I come out the window and I pit the plaintiffs against the defence attorney'. I got excused.
2[on the DVD commentary for Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (2008), talking about his skill at portraying "Joey Buchanan" on One Life to Live (1968)] The only question you have to ask yourself is 'How good a Joey Buchanan was I?' A man's 'Buchananity' is what separates him from reptiles and lawn furniture.
3[on Firefly (2002)] - It was my favorite job ever. What wasn't great about it? I got to wear a low-slung holster. I got to ride horses. I got to have a spaceship. I got to act mean and curmudgeonly. [Creator Joss Whedon] is really good at kicking characters in the nuts so the other characters would have laughs at my expense and that was great too. ... If I got $300 million from the California Lottery, the first thing I would do is buy the rights to Firefly, make it on my own, and distribute it on the Internet. ... We're the most story-literate society the world has ever seen. What Joss tends to do is twist story conventions into reality. Whereas the story goes like this, real life goes like this, and that's what Joss has mastered.
4(When asked if he would go back and do a Firefly (2002) TV series again after Serenity (2005)): I hope so. Daddy's got bills to pay!
5(When asked what makes Caleb unique and threatening): His accent. Never trust a southerner. No, I'm kidding. They're wonderful. You want to believe in his niceness and his charm, but he's an evil kind of crazy man who's righteous. Fear the righteous.
6(When asked what he likes about playing a villain): Being able to be evil. You can't do the evil things that you want to do in real life. You certainly can't because it's against the law and society says all that they have to say about being evil. You want to be bad everyday. You want to do the bad evil things that you can't get away with and now I'm able to be bad and super strong. It's a fantasy.
7(About Serenity (2005)): There is nothing like a major motion picture to make you feel a little bit better about having your TV show canceled.
8(When asked about his relationship with Joss Whedon): I'll tell you this. No one has ever shown the kind of faith in me that Joss Whedon has shown, in both giving me a lead on his sci-fi show Firefly (2002) and in letting me play a villain for the very first time. No one's ever let me play a villain before. So, I would say that I think he's done great things for my career and certainly my confidence in general.
9(On Firefly fans attempts to save the show) It's very Jehovah's Witness. I'm not sure if anyone's actually going door to door, but it's not far off.
10(Talking about the cancellation of Firefly (2002)): I broke the cardinal rule of don't fall in love with what you're doing, because the rug can get yanked out from underneath you, and when it did, I was heartbroken.
11My favorite villains are the ones you don't see coming. What I enjoyed about playing Caleb was that he was so very, very clever, so very, very sweet, and so very, very twisted. I liked that he's not a typical villain. He's soft and sweet and righteous, and yet he's perverted and twisted in his head.
12I've always fantasized about being on TV. And I was. Then I fantasized about being in the movies. What could be better than captain of a space ship? I get to ride horses, shoot guns, have adventures ...
