  • Quotes

    • Justin: I was a huge fan. Knight Rider was an iconic figure in my childhood. I'd run around in a leather jacket and fight indiscriminate crime in my house. I never saw it when it ran initially, because I was about four [at the time]. But I watched it when it was syndicated.

    • Justin: (KITT is his fictional car on the show "Knight Rider") I'm a very good driver. I have all of my points, everything, I'm good. Not to the degree that KITT does, but I can hold my own.

    • Justin: (On his series "Knight Rider") The hero is going to win at the end of the day. Sometimes people need that kind of story. There's enough stories where the good guys don't win.

    • Justin: I've always been a hopeless romantic. I don't do it on a daily basis. I'll do something big and then I'm like, "How the hell am I going to top that next year?" I start planning a year in advance.

    • Justin: (on something readers may not know about him) I can decorate. My office is an "Ocean Room," because I love the ocean. It's like a sea-green/blue. I have two aquariums in there. It's more like my playroom. I've got my Game Boy and PlayStation stuff in there.

    • Justin: (on his character Jamie on "All My Children") He's very sarcastic. It's fun for me because that's how I am in real life. For a while I hated my character just because he is such an idiot. I'd beat him up if I ever met him on the street. But it's gotten fun because he is edgier. He's always been a smart character. He just didn't have common sense before.

    • Justin: (On growing up in a small town) I hated it because all the things that I wanted to do, I could not do there. We had no pavement, so skateboarding was out. I tried it once, but I hit a rock and ran into a fence.

    • Justin: I was a model from Abercromibe & Fitch. Then, I got a role on All My Children. Now, I'm happier than I've ever been.

  • Great on All my Children.

    Great actor.
