Corin Nemec: Every role varies greatly, just as emotions vary greatly.
Corin Nemec: "A lot of my influence is from Charles Bukowski. He writes very radical poetry, about his daily life. Very dark stuff."
Corin Nemec: "I have my ethics and morals. I have my anchor point of what is right and wrong in real life, but I'm not afraid to entertain any and every aspect of personality in relationship to creating a character."
Corin Nemec: "Parker Lewis and Stargate were similar in some ways. They were both one-camera shows, and both were the highest quality for the genre."
Corin Nemec: "What motivates me in art is the ugly and beautiful nature of the truth. It has to be truthful and honest, even if it is ugly and grotesque."
Corin Nemec: "Scientology, to me, is it! There's nothing scary or mysterious about it. Grab a book, any book, and discover for yourself the truth that is Universal to us all."
Corin Nemec: "Poetry is whatever comes out. And that's where I like to be-in that place where I just write for the love of writing."
Corin Nemec: (about funny instances on the Stargate SG-1 set) "It was funny but it wasn't funny like at the time. No one was really laughing on the set. I don't know because the season I did, there wasn't too much joking around or practical jokes or anything like that. So, maybe it's the banana scene."
