Jack Coleman: (about his character in The Office) I don't want to play earnest. I'd rather play somebody who's kind of sleazy. It's much more fun, especially in a comedy. You don't want to be some earnest guy who's just trying to do the right thing but can't. I want to be doing the wrong thing intentionally.
Jack: I am blind as a bat and I wear contact lenses because the vision they afford is much better. So I wear contacts and then I have to wear reading glasses. My eyes have been bad - I come from bad eyesight on both sides of my family.
Jack: I don't play a lot of convicts or mafia guys. I'm usually a professional, a doctor, lawyer, banker... that kind of thing. But sometimes you get to be the twisted guy, too, which is what I'm relishing so much about this [Heroes] role. There's nothing worse than playing a milquetoast. I'm happy to play a jerk, and I'm happy to play a bad guy. It really is fun to be able to play somebody who has a dark, sinister side.
Jack Coleman: (About life on the "Heroes" set) There's always plenty of shenanigans. If you've ever been around Greg Grunberg there are always shenanigans. It's a fun set.
Jack Coleman: (About his most challenging scene in "Heroes") I recently did an entire scene in Japanese, and that was challenging because that took quite a bit of time for me to memorize and get comfortable enough so that I could do it. So, possibly that, and then there's some scenes that are physically strenuous, and but I don't think there was one that caused me quite as much angst as when I got the script and saw that I was doing a page and a half in Japanese.
Jack Coleman: I always thought invisibility would be cool, but then I was invisible for most of the '90s.
Jack Coleman: (Heroes and it's following success) I attribute the success of the show entirely to Milo's hair. Actually, I believe it's the combination of epic storytelling set against realistic human consequences. What might it be like to wake up with these abilities? It has to be more complicated than finding a cool uniform. And it is.
Jack Coleman: I would love to do a movie like All the President's Men. A really smart, crisp political thriller.
Jack Coleman: A television series grind can wear you down into dust, too, because it's a million more hours than the theater.
Jack Coleman: After a hit show is over, you soon realize this is a very tough business brutally tough. But I'm a better actor and I have more gravitas than I had at 24 with bleached-blonde hair.
