When I was first starting out, I remember my acting teacher (William Esper) telling me, you know, 'Give yourself about 10 years and then you'll get good at it' and I feel like I just sort of crossed that line a few years ago, and I'm enjoying my career more than ever.
It's very rare that you can be in a career for as long as I have and still feel like you're constantly learning and coming at it from an almost childlike perspective.
I trust that I know a good part when I see one, and usually, when I see one, I have to wait for seven people to pass in order for me to get it.
I'd like to think I'm a little more easygoing than the character on 'Deadwood,' without question.
On 'Justified', we're driving all around Southern California trying to find a location that we can call Kentucky.
