You get a sense of how the show works and then let your personality take over.
They're real people. It's a look into the future that's not going to be a perfect utopian future. Joss was able to portray people with flaws, imperfect people, tyrannical people, people who can be both heroic and self-centered.
Hopefully, young people will read more books, and it will cause them to think a little longer, than just react to pretty pictures.
I mean, I'm a guy with three kids. I'm home usually Friday nights, but I know most people who aren't like me aren't.
It could potentially be something big but come what may, we have closure on a very sad chapter of our lives when the show was cancelled. Now we have this movie that stands on its own and hopefully we're all part of something special and I think we are.
I'm like a fungus; you can't get rid of me.
I don't prefer the guest star, one-shots. The arcs are more interesting because they give you more time to work through the character and they tend to give you more close-ups, which is what television is all about.
I was involved with drama departments since the 5th grade. I played at it. It was an escape.
I'm always looking, as an actor, for activities. I think it's far more interesting to watch what people do than what they say. You always want to watch behavior, because the dialogue as written by our illustrious leaders is great. Eminently playable.

We've had a long ride back from a cancellation of a short-lived television series to the release of a major motion picture. I don't know if there's any other story equivalent to that in Hollywood history,
My heroes are the camera crew and the electricians. They work such long hours.
The only people who have control over their careers are the ones you see on the covers of magazines. Everyone else is just plodding along making a living. The key is not to live over your means and overdo it.
I just consider myself a piece of the puzzle and I'm lucky enough to be asked or invited to the party, if you will. I hope I can bring some laughs and grimaces to the fans.
There's a definite Boy-named-Sue bitterness emanating from Jayne. You don't cross him, you don't trust him. But you want him on your side in a fight.
A lot of the television industry is so cookie-cutter. In general, there are so many shows that are easy and bland to watch. You can tune in at any time and know exactly where you are in the story arc because it's pretty much the same every week.
