  • Quotes

    • David: I'm more into beats than rhymes. I'm a huge fan of anything touched by the Neptunes. Dancing is kind of my thing. I go out with my friends as often as I can on the weekends, and I'm always drawn to girls with rhythm.

    • David: (on what he's doing next) I have too many projects coming out right now. I have a movie called The Quiet with Elisha Cuthbert and Shawn Ashmore, and an indie film based on Oscar Wilde's novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray. I'm Dorian, so it was an experiment for me as far as the first time I got to lead a film on my own. And not only that, the content itself is very dark, very sexual, very not 7th Heaven!

    • David: (on 7th Heaven's success) It's funny because we always knew it would do well, even when everyone else was saying the show wasn't really going to go anywhere. The thing about it is that there's nothing else like it. So that in itself kind of constitutes a longevity--you find your audience and they have nowhere else to go!

    • David: (on being recognised by fans) It's different every day. A lot of times, yeah, usually I'll get something. Sometimes it's worse than others...sometimes it's really bad! It's always a grab bag of fans. I'm invisible when I'm around JC (Chasez) though!

    • David: (after playing in *NSYNC's bowling charity game) I don't bowl because I'm no good at it... but I wasn't the worst one out there! I'm very good friends with JC (Chasez) and I love doing charity work.

    • David: (on his dream movie role) I would be Maximus or Aragorn from Lord of the Rings... (Or) make me Hobbit #3 and I'll be fine!
