I'd much rather be in a comedy. In my view, comedy wins out in the long run. I'm not sure I'm a good enough actor to play real tragedy, so I bring a comic element to most things as my answer to the world's problems. I'm not a clown though. I love goofing around, but I don't feel the need to act the clown in private - I do it at work, that's where I exorcise my demons. Although I confess that I do sometimes put together outfits to annoy my wife.
There's just something about yelling that's funny to me.
When I was ten, I wrote an essay on what I would be when I grew up and said I would be a professional soccer player and a comedian in off season.
There are a lot of really funny guys who are very natural in what they do: Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Seth Rogen.
It's very easy for me to play silly, but to reveal something closer to you, that's so much harder.
I grew up in an entertainment family, and so I saw how susceptible you are to the ups and downs of this business.
I don't really have aspirations to be Tom Hanks.
