#Quote
1 When I first started out in Houston, it was theater or bust. And I loved it. I still love it. And then I went to undergraduate and graduate school for acting.
2 There's no audience to wonderfully get in your way when you're doing a single-camera anything, whether it's a sitcom or drama or film. And I do mean that in the best way.
3 My choices in projects have all been character or role-based, and on a financial level, it's obvious: as an actor on a TV series, I get a wonderful paycheck, and a consistent paycheck, which doesn't always happen when you're doing theater or movies.
4 It's a shame, but every time I get something scientific in the script, I read up to find out what I'm talking about - but then I'm on to the next script and it's forgotten.
5 I was very average in the social label scale going through school. I was neither the coolest person in school, nor did I suffer the slings and arrows of being made fun of to such a degree that I couldn't get through the day.
6 I try to master every facet of a character in order to build a safety net for myself, so I can go on to take more risks to create someone really distinct.
7 I grew up with two different parakeets - one that lived for five years, and one that lived for 13 years - so I always had a bit of an attraction to birds and it's an oddly good fit to be in a movie about birdwatchers.
8 I did have a Twitter account that I tried for a couple days, but found I had nothing to say. There are some interesting facts I could share, but I don't want to share that part of myself.
9 In L.A., I have more of a yard existence, and so I enjoy walking my two little dogs in New York - one's a Maltese and the other's a Shih Tzu.
10 The Big Bang Theory (2007) has completely changed my life.
11 To have a job you can count on as an actor is so rare, whether that means belonging to a regional theater company or being on TV.
12 Well, I'm a big believer in "never say never".
13 As a human being, you know that there are some days when you'd rather not talk to anybody - but I can't really do that anymore without appearing rude.
14 Every time I think about writing, comedy doesn't interest me in the slightest. I can play comedy, but I don't think in terms of comic dialogue.
15 I don't think the jet-setting life is really for most people.
16 I had a very strong interest in music, specifically the piano from a very small age.
17 I love seeing tennis up close.
18 I think in any form of acting, you're always well served if you've done theater.
19 I think intelligence is usually sexy until it becomes irritating. After that, you're stuck.
20 I was a very shy child.
21 I'm also a big American Idol (2002) fan. I think it's just great fun.
22 I've always loved TV very much, and as a child I was so religious with it, but now it's more when it fits in.
23 If I ever wrote a script myself, it would be strongly emotional material.
24 [After he won a Golden Globe for The Big Bang Theory (2007) which was presented by his co-star Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting] I told her as soon as we got offstage that "No matter how many years I work in this business, no matter how many other awards I might get, that will never happen twice." To be presented with this statuette by my co-star who I love so much meant the world to me.
25 [on credentials for playing a physicist in The Big Bang Theory (2007)] I was very fascinated with meteorology at a young age. I lived on the Gulf Coast and hurricanes blew through there. That is the class I failed in college: meteorology. I didn't have an interest in the particulars - but what a wonderful basis for a show.
