  • Quotes

    • Anthony:(On the success of The Dead Zone) I don't think you can always plan for success, but you can be prepared. So it's always nice when it sort of surprises you, you know? And it really took me by surprise.

    • Anthony: Everyone deserves the opportunity to succeed.

    • Anthony: I've been a working actor since age eight. It became my craft and career by high school. I did not go to college, but I'm an avid reader in the ongoing process of educating myself.

    • Anthony: I grew up in the public eye. I can't hide from that. I always embrace the work I've done before. I wouldn't be where I am now if it wasn't for those movies. I'm always baffled by actors who are like, 'I'm not going to talk about the '80s.' What? You're just forgetting that whole experience? I feel very fortunate to have been able to do those films. It gave me the tools I needed to be where I am.

    • Anthony: (on working in all three mediums) Movies and TV are both incredibly gratifying. I treat the work the same. Music, specifically songwriting and music production, are very gratifying as well.

    • Anthony: (on what he would do if he had to spend a million dollars on someone other than himself) Donate a portion to reputable children's and animal charities, donate a portion to churches and homeless organizations.

    • Anthony: (on Tom Green's directorial style with "Freddy Got Fingered") Off-camera, he's very quiet. He'd often be walking around quietly, twirling his hair while thinking about his next shot. I think the guy's a genius. I think the guy's a social hypnotist. I think he's incredible. He's on to something big-time and it's not just standup comedy. If this doesn't make $100 million, something's wrong. I smell a sequel.
