John Francis Daley Trivia


  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • John: (Talking about the fact that he's really young) I just tell everyone I'm 37, so I get the respect I deserve.

    • John: (Talking about his high school years) I had a tutor for most of my time in high school. When I was a freshman, I got Freaks and Geeks. I basically went from that to my next job to my next job. I never felt like I was missing out on high school, because I realized what an incredible experience I was having.

    • John: (Talking about real high school and Freaks and Geeks) Everyone can say that they went to high school, but not everyone can say that during high school they were doing a television show about high school.

    • John: The biggest challenge is making that transition from kid to adult on the screen. When you're a kid actor, you tend to be seen as a kid actor. It's very difficult for people to see you as anything else. Fortunately, I've been able to grow into my own skin as an adult.

    • John The one project that I've always wanted to do is a feature film that I'll write and direct. That, and to star in Venezuelan softcore porn. But that goes without saying.

    • John: My family has had the most influence on my career. They told me that I could do anything I wanted with my life, and then supported me the whole way.

    • John: (Comparing real high school to Freaks and Geeks high school experience) I never had the real high-school experience, only the fictional "lights, camera, action" high-school experience. But doing a television show is always going to be more fun than going to actual high school, so I can't complain.

    • (After earning a black belt in Kung Fu)
      John: I don't get to use it too often. I try to. I pick fights with people all the time. No one wants to hit me back.

    • (On preparing himself for his role in "Kitchen Confidential")
      John: We learned how to look like we know how to cook. We ran through this extensive thirty-minute training at the commissary on the Fox lot. By the end of it I learned how to flip stuff in a pan, and that's basically all I have to do. Flip stuff in a pan.
