  • Quotes

    • Glenn: (on the film "Tully") I liked it. Even more than those edgy things, what appeals to me is the gentleness and slowness that reveals itself in a deeper, more personal way.

    • Glenn: (on the challenges of stage work) Sometimes people shout out from the audience. One guy actually called out to one of the actors, 'Is your name Jackson? Hey, are you Jackson?' We just kept going. Now we call that actor Jackson. It's an interactive show. 'Come on up! Tell us about you'.

    • Glenn: (on being chosen as one of the 50 "Beautiful People" of Paper Magazine) It's all kind of new to me in a certain way, I'm usually in the background about these kinds of things.

    • Glenn: (on the opportunity to lose himself in the characters he plays) That's always been an appealing part of acting for me. To a certain extent it's getting away from myself or trying to embody something different.

    • Glenn: (on seeing himself in a magazine) I get alienated by it. Even just seeing that picture in Paper Magazine -- I was just telling a friend the other day -- I felt alienated by it. You've got an identification, you know that's you, your name is there, but it's like, "hmmm".

    • Glenn: (about "Flirting With Disaster") That was a really fortunate break. A lot of doors opened for me.
