I love going to concerts, so that whole environment is something that intrigues me anyway.
If someone comes up to me, 90 percent of the time it`s about Office Space.
I am also a drummer of sorts. I`ve got an electronic set sitting in my bedroom.
I was initially a leading man, but only on television.
I think it had something to do with my love of music, especially rock music.
There is no handbook about how a career is going to go.
I miss everything about Chicago, except January and February.
I grew up with Apocalypse Now and Badlands, so I had a real awe thing going.
I messed around in high school, but I pretty much put it away until I did a television show in San Francisco.
Yes, I`ve already done a couple of guest voices.
I still like to listen to the people that I came of age on.
Then, at some point, you get identified with certain things.
I don`t think anyone sets out to do something bad, it`s just that it`s very difficult.
I will confess I did none of my own singing. I did all my own costume and makeup, though.
You can go out in a good movie and look bad as well.
When you make a movie, it`s up to so many things and so many people.
I like the fact that this kind of family has been seen in a movie a million times: teenage kids, the family is a bit strained and they don`t have enough money, but in the background the guy used to be a Gene Simmons type.
I just don`t eat too much. That`s never been my problem.
I was a little nervous coming in mostly because my first scene was with Martin Sheen, who I`m a huge fan of.
Karl Malden was quite a mentor. He taught me things he had learned from being in front of a camera so long.
You always know when something works it`s a result of everything firing on all cylinders.
A lot of actors in my age bracket look at being still standing as pretty good.
Being able to fantasize for a couple of days at being a rock singer surpassed most things I`ve done on stage.
You need someone to tell you how to do things like hitting your marks, or driving a car so it looks right or getting out of a car so it doesn`t take a million years of screen time.
So I had no concept that there was this whole culture of memos, supervisors, meetings, casual Fridays and lame birthday parties.
