I never really considered acting as a career until I moved to New York.
For me, it was more a dramatic shift to go from the stage to the screen.
People feel like they know me from the work I have done, but it's not me.
I'm very focused on ""Dexter"" right now. I want to make it as good of a show as we can.
My mother is a survivor who's had a lot of things happen in her life that have been very trying.

I mean, the competition is really created by the buzz around the Emmys. It's a totally subjective thing.
I don't think closeted homosexual morticians have the market cornered on self-loathing or sense of shame.
I like to think I am well-mannered. If I have the option at a breakfast place, I'll go with the grits. That's how Southern I am.
It's interesting to play a role where you don't really have to preoccupy yourself with any need to convince yourself that you're not acting.
