Basically, though, I'm just lucky to love what I do for a living.

I'm just a lazy boy. I'd rather sit in my recliner and act.

Doing Roseanne (1988) made me famous. To this day, people will call me "Dan Arnold". They will shout out, "Where's Roseanne?".

Read, read, read, read, read. Read everything. You can’t work unless you know the world, and outside of living in the world the best way to learn about the world is to read about it.

I ain't never been in no college with famous people. I was a drifter for a while. I just was desperate to fit in with a group. Really, I was swimming. I was lost, treading water, trying to find my way. I wanted to play football. It didn't work out. I didn't really know what I wanted until I found acting in a theater department, and then everything just fell into place, and I had a passion about something. Then, I started living my life.

Sometimes I overtinker, which is something wrong with my brain chemistry. But in figuring out why I do that, maybe I'll make myself a better person. I doubt it.

When I was a kid, I loved Popeye, but the old ones, the real old ones.
