Bright blue eyes
[when he received news of his Emmy nomination] "I am keeping with tradition today. After I learned of my Golden Globe nomination, I went to the dentist, so today, let's make it the orthodontist."
Acting classes, I guess, are good and I would like to maybe sometime take one. But I would feel like I was learning someone else's technique. I like mine.
Yeah, I like cars and basketball. But you know what I like more? Bananas.
[about Australia] I love it! It's awesome. I want to move here! I've just been promoting Big Fat Liar (2002) and hoping it's going to go really good. Malcolm in the Middle (2000) is doing really well here. I haven't been able to do a lot of stuff and I haven't seen that much though.
Some kids are always getting into trouble or doing stuff, and I stay away from those types. I know I am no better than anyone else in this world. I'm just an actor, that's nothing special. But I'm not into anything bad. Just blackjack.
"There was a scene cut out of Big Fat Liar (2002) where I had to wear a dress. This may sound kind of weird, but I really enjoyed shooting that scene".
By that point, I already had nine concussions. But concussions don't usually correlate with TIAs. The doctors did every test. A lot of times with TIAs, there's a small hole in heart that causes it. Clots go to the brain and you have a mini-stroke. I don't have that hole. I'm 31, I've never sipped alcohol, I've never touched a drug or taken a drag of a cigarette. The only thing I've felt was stress. I'm a high-strung person. I just like to always be moving. I'm not good at relaxing.
