Trivia and Quotes

Quotes (20)

  • Neil: So I've done my fair share of theater. I have also been very fortunate in that I've been able to come to New York two or three times a year just to see as many shows as possible. I think the live theater culture here is incredible.

  • Neil: Thankfully I've been quite lucky in my career, but it's always good to re-evaluate things and think about what else you want to do.

  • Neil: I'm a games and theory kind of guy. I love puzzles, so it was fun dissecting Shakespeare's prose.

  • (Comparing himself to his role as Barney in the show "How I Met Your Mother") Neil: I’m relatively sardonic, but I'm certainly not the playboy that he is. He's a quantity man. He’s after as many crazy adventures and one-night stands that he can get, and I’m a bit more regular.
