    • Greg: (About being glad that he's not typecast in Hollywood) like all things, it's a blessing and a curse. There is probably added simplicity to a career where you can be identified for the kinds of roles you can -- and should -- play as an actor. I am sure with me, it's the second or third meeting [for a role] that people come around and say, 'You know, he could do that.' I don't think a lot of times I am the obvious choice.

    • Greg: (About raising his two daughters) I went to a Wiggles concert not too long ago – got down with them. The truth is, they don't watch a lot of TV. What I feel most protective of at this point is keeping them isolated from ... pop culture. I just want to allow that innocence to drag out a little bit further.

    • Greg: Setting goals can blind you to opportunities. You might be trying to get to point C. When opportunity B comes, you don't even look at it because you're going straight to C. I've never had a clear road map. When things come along, I benefit.

    • Greg: (On his school days) I was always explaining why my term papers were never on time. I think that's where I got my acting training!

    Greg Kinnear is a true actor. You really believe that he got into acting because he loves it for what it is. You'll never see him in any tabloids and you won't hear any gossip about him. In his roles, you sense more realism than many other actor's who are considered more talented than he. Of all of his roles in all of his movies, my favorite has to be "Little Miss Sunshine."moreless
