I think being very thin has had a lot to do with how I've been cast.
The fact 'Twin Peaks' had a life at all took most of us in the cast by surprise. We thought it would be too unusual for network television. The original intention was that it would be a two-hour movie. If the network didn't want to pick it up as a series, it could just show that. But ABC took a chance.
I love playing Jim. I love working with this cast and the opportunity to come back and work with them again was just way too appealing for me. Also, I think this is a great way to wrap up the franchise.
The great thing I think when you do independents is that people are really there for the same reason. They're not there because they got a lot of money and they want to just go home and get it over with. They're there because they believe in the script or the director or the cast or whatever it is, and they want to make it work.
The Neighbours cast is like a second family.
There was this project I really wanted before 'Glee' and I didn't get cast - I went in about 13 times and I was so bummed when I didn't get it. But then a month later I got cast on 'Glee,' and I felt like it was meant to happen.
The first time Adrian saw me was on tape. But you should know that this never works - never in the history of movies has someone been cast from a video.
Mum asks why I am so often cast in adulterous roles. I think it must be because I am fairly flirty.
In the end, my reasons for moving down the timeline and introducing a new cast have more to do with keeping myself entertained, on the assumption that if I get bored, my readers are going to be even more bored.

I moved to New York to do theater, and I got cast in a play that was funny, and then I was the funny guy. I did a movie that was funny, and then I was the funny guy.
I got cast on ER, I knew I'd be playing a great character and I knew the show was great.
You can't just go in there and open your mouth until the cast and director feel comfortable with you.
Brian and I got cast out of that show into Trapper John, M. D.
I came to NBC on 'Friday Night Lights' and they have supported that show and found ways - unprecedented ways - to keep it on the air for a long time. And when I came to them with the idea of doing 'Parenthood,' they not only supported me in doing it but also got behind it in such a way that we were able to put together this incredible cast.
I've said maybe too many times that I'd rather be typecast than not cast at all.
My respect for animation has gone way up. It's a truckload of work. I have to sit with my animators the same way I'd sit with my actors and cast them.
'Wings' was a blessing, but it was also very difficult. Whenever you do situation comedy, no matter how excellent the execution - and we had a great cast and great writers - but the format is somewhat limited.
Shooting at night in Los Angeles is amazing. The city shuts down at 10 P.M. every night, and a whole different cast of characters comes out.
I wrote two plays before I was cast on 'The Neighbors.' They actually got published, which was cool.
The cast is so big that you really don't work very much.
The women I cast have to embody all sorts of contradictions... I have to find the right woman to speak to other women.
At the time I just was like, I can't believe I am on the show, and the first thing I have to do is an entire song and dance routine for the whole cast of 'Mad Men.'
Hill Street Blues gave me an opportunity to work with an ensemble cast of people whose work I admired.
You're not cast because you're like someone or because you're sympathetic to them. You're cast because you can act.
Mike and Heather and I rapped once or twice in New York and then we all wound up on a train together on the way out to Maryland. I think it was about a month and a half from the time we got cast until the time we shot the thing.
