    • Josh: (On working with rocker Bon Jovi on the set of Ally McBeal)
      As far as Bon Jovi coming in, he's just cool. He's such a nice, cool guy. It's just cool to me that Bon Jovi knows my name!

    • Josh: (On his character in Ally McBeal) Raymond is quite a chauvinist. And as my mom will testify, I differ from him in that way. However, on the flip side, Raymond is extremely honest and I try to be. Look for more serious story lines for Raymond soon.

    • Josh: (On acting and his goals) I love acting, every job is a dream job when you're an actor. I'd like to do eventually more film work and to collaborate with the best actors and directors in film.
