I'm really hopeful about the future of space exploration and human spaceflight. Civilization as we know it has been defined by exploration.

We're trying to tell a very full story of 'Nashville' and these characters in Nashville, and I'm really hopeful that we're going to be able to do something as innovative as 'American Horror Story' and 'Friday Night Lights.' And I think so far, we're on the right path for that.
My first kiss was with a girlfriend. And it was at a party. I think I was hopeful that that would happen, but I didn't plan it.

And then you're like, 'Awww, why?'
