[about his role as Stonewall Jackson] It's not about flag waving to me, it's about showing a real American hero.
[on reasons for his role in White Irish Drinkers (2010)]: One, I really liked the title, that's how shallow I am. But the main reason was, I was afraid of it. You kind of heave a sigh and go, "Oh God, I'm going to have to go there?".
Acting can be a very reactive profession. Acting is a fantastic thing, and it's my life, but writing is also part of me too, so I did it and in so doing took responsibility for my own life. And it was very directly and specifically because of "Beyond Glory" that Jim Cameron cast me in Avatar (2009). And Avatar is responsible for the good fortune I've had over the last few years.
...My dad had gone to Swarthmore. He is New York Jewish and my mom is New York Irish Catholic. You put them together and you get me. I consider myself quite ethnically Jewish, without being particularly religious (laughs). Although, I can leave that door open for the future, if I need it.
