    • Garret: I remember one of my earliest jobs was a sitcom and it was my first one when I started doing television, and I remember people saying 'he's not a serious actor,' and then I had trouble getting in for those. And then after Deadwood it's like, 'oh, he can't be funny.

    • Garret: (on getting more projects after "Deadwood") I guess I shouldn't say it's all because of Deadwood. I should say that it's because of me, but I feel like it's all because of Deadwood. That showcase really opened up a lot of doors for me.

    • Garret: I've been very lucky and while I do play a lot of bad guys, they've been very wide and varied. I feel like if I have a reputation it's as someone who is a chameleon, which I like. I don't know if it's the best business move because people don't know who you are. But I like it and it makes me feel good.

    • Garret: (on fame and being stalked by Paparazzi) I don't even know how to control that. All I can do is be good and get better and make one role different from the last.

    • Garret: (about his character on "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles") It is cool. It's cool to just win a fight. I gotta tell you, I've been beat up so much in my career. It's so nice to actually win, break a neck. I'm anxious to punch something actually. I haven't punched anything as a terminator yet. It's all lifting people by their necks.

    • Garret: I played Jesus Christ [in NBC's short-lived The Book of Daniel] which also had pretty good job security, because you can't kill Jesus. But I don't know if there is ever job security in what we do.

    • Garret: (on playing a robot on "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles") I don't know about you, but I look back on my life and there are moments that I could have been braver. So it's kind of fun to have an excuse to be really brave. And I mean in acting terms and Terminator terms, to not be afraid to play a character who has no fear, to jump off a building and be brave enough to not show it is pretty cool.

    • Garret: I'm just not good at playing the guys that get the girl and all that. I was just never that. I didn't buy it, and I bet no one else would, either. When I quit chasing those and just started doing the character stuff that I always loved, things went better.

    • Garret: (about working on "Deadwood") It's just so fun when it all works. This is what you thought it would be when you were a dewy-eyed kid, saying, 'I want to be an actor.' This is what you thought it would be all the time.

    • Garret: (about becoming a regular cast member in the 2nd season of "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles") I was surprised they asked me to be a regular on the show. I wouldn't think a terminator's life would be that long.
