  • Quotes

    • Eric: I think it's stupid [for gay performers to be closeted]. If you're thinking, 'I'll get more jobs if people think I'm straight,' really? Well, there are tons of straight actors who are unemployed. Getting work in this business is tough, period, gay or straight.

    • Eric: (On the cast of 'Bones') I felt good about this group of people when we first got together to read through the pilot in Hart's office. They're all very kind, respectful, hard working, talented people. I think we probably all bonded in the fact that we were we liked the project, that we were all blessed with a wonderful opportunity to work together on the show. We liked Hart and we were excited about his vision for the show.

    • Eric: (On getting his hair cut for his role on 'Bones') I was getting tired of my hair being long and I wanted to cut it. Hart thought it would be good as a storyline for the second season, and that's what ended up happening.

    • Eric: I grew up with musical theater, and maybe I like Broadway better than TV. You know, I lived in New York for 10 years, and I went to every single show - several times. That's a dream!

    • Eric: I don't know how you can be attracted to someone and then turn off any attraction you might have for someone else, no matter how in love you are.

    • Eric: I care what people think — not just critics, but audiences, too.

    • Eric: As actors, we go through so much rejection, it can't faze me.
