Chris was supposed to headline the CBS military drama, JAG, if it returned for an eleventh season.
Chris: (on his passion for theoretical physics) I find this (field) fascinating. Would you believe that we are all traveling 155,000 miles per second?
Chris: (in a 2004 interview; During that time he was starring in "As the World Turns".) Would I like to say I'm Brad Pitt? Why of course! But for now I'm happy to be just a working actor on a great show.
Chris: (on replacing David James Elliot in "JAG") I have nothing but the utmost respect for the guy, and I don't presume to fill his shoes. I am coming on as a new character; I'm doing my own thing, and hopefully people like it.
Chris: (on his departure from "As the World Turns" being "story line-dictated") It means that my character wasn't doing anything, and when your character's story line stalls, prepare to hit the road.
Chris: (on needing to train on military procedure for his role in "JAG") I did Black Hawk Down. I spent four months with the Rangers for that, so I have some experience playing a military guy. It was a good fit.
Chris: (the two things being his age and his relationships) I just never like to discuss those two things. It makes me uncomfortable.
Chris: (on doing soap opera) I come in everyday and do about 40 pages of dialog. The work is challenging, but each and everyday is a new learning experience.
Chris: (on the difference between working on a daytime and primetime show) You can do a take 10-15 times and that gives the actor a chance to warm up and go through the motions a few times, as opposed to daytime, where it's one or two takes and that's it.
