For me, as an audience member, I'm always most engaged by serialized storytelling, so as an actor, the thing that I take away from it is how much fun it is to perform a serialized story.
I've always felt more comfortable in the company of women, and as far as girlfriends go, they've each been a learning experience. You meet someone at a certain point in your life, then break apart, but you always share that time.
You know what I like about a beard? You can always look contemplative.
With 'Dawson's Creek,' I wasn't a fan of '90210,' and that wasn't particularly my genre of show. 'Fringe,' on the other hand, is right up my alley.
If you don't like my work in 'The Affair,' that's fine, but I'll stand by the work because I felt that everything that went on camera was what I intended to go on camera.
I'll cop to this: so much of doing a 22-episode show is just keeping your head above water.
