  • Quotes

    • Michael: (talking about his most embarrassing moment in an audition for "Dark Angel") It was with Jessica (Alba) and James Cameron (director of Titanic). Not only I was nervous about auditioning in front of James, but I also had to do it with this gorgeous girl. All I remember is I was trying not to sweat.

    • Michael Weatherly: When I first read the script, someone had left it in my apartment. They had been housesitting while I was away working out of the country, and when I came back this had been sitting on my desk. And it had said, 'Dark Angel, James Cameron, Charles Eglee.' And I had thought, 'Oh, Jim Cameron's new movie - this is kind of cool.' So I picked it up and read it, envisioning Ed Harris as Logan. Then, a couple of weeks later, I got a call from my manger, and she said, 'Do you want to audition for this Dark Angel thing? We've got a meeting for you.' And I said, 'Great, which part?' I mean, I figured I'd be bodyguard number three or maybe I'd get to be one of the jam pony messengers in the back. And she said, 'No, no. Logan.'

    • Michael Weatherly: My favorite show so far has been Prodigy, in which I got thrown off the top of a building, and she dove after me, and then we slammed through a window and landed on a bed. And I thought, 'You know, I'm a lucky man to be able to do this for a living. What an odd occupation.'

    • Michael Weatherly: (On his "Dark Angel" character, 'Logan') He's got the tricked-out apartment. He's also extremely good at the computer stuff. I don't even know where the power switch is! My character kicks butt!

    • Michael: (on balancing his career and being a parent) I just try to let him know as much as possible that he is loved. And I haven't made any more children because I didn't know when I was 26 that it was this hard. At 26, I just figured, "Hey, you do it." I mean, God, the ignorance of youth. [Laughs]

    • Michael: (asked how hard it is to spend time with his son due to the long hours on "NCIS") It's really hard. Luckily, August has a really solid home [with his mother, actress Amelia Heinle] and I get my weekends, when I'm there. We go to basketball games, we make home movies, we go for hikers - but yeah, it's not ideal.

    • Michael: (asked how he feels about "NCIS" after four years) I'm so proud of it, and pleased and amazed at how popular it is all around the world. Walking around Sydney and Melbourne (when in Australia in May 2007), I was approached by everyone from goth kids asking if they can take a picture, to investment bankers and women in the supermarket. So it has a pretty broad audience.

    • Michael: (asked if he still enjoys playing Tony in "NCIS") You know, I'm actually looking forward to taking some time off. Being away from Tony is really nice because he is a lot (to handle). I mean, I hang out with him a lot and he's hard work! He's very tactile and loves to live life to the full. And he eats a lot!

    • Michael: The most challenging thing is when I take naps in between scenes. I'm a napper! I average two a day. And my character (Logan Cale in Dark Angel) wears glasses, so when I wake up from the nap my glasses are sort of bent and crooked and I have to straighten them out. There are a couple of scenes when my glasses appear crooked. And that's due to my love of naps.

    • Michael Weatherly: (about NCIS) And there's also a family dynamic that's like growing up in an American dysfunctional family. You know, you've got the father, the strange sibling rivalries going on and the weird grandpa in the basement with the dead bodies. You know, like everyone's family.

    • Michael:(About his car) I drive Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

    • Michael Weatherly: If you look at the other shows that are on this year, I don't think there's anything like Dark Angel, is there? I was watching it a couple of weeks ago, and what occurred to me is that this is the show that I would have been watching a few years ago, when I had time to watch television. Because I think it's like a candy that's somewhat nutritious. It's like the candy vitamin C.

    • Michael Weatherly: There's not a lot on TV that's like Dark Angel. To its credit, it's not a show that's trying to be like everything else. It's not a copycat.

    • Michael Weatherly: How much do you Sci-Fi it up? Really, I think it's kind of subtle, because I don't think that you necessarily realize that you're watching a show that takes place in the future all the time. It plays kind of current. But at the same time, you have the freedom of that specific element of the Sci-Fi genre; the jump forward in time gives you a little wiggle room, so you can have the genetically engineered super-babe. You can have certain, more sinister elements at play.

    • Michael Weatherly: When you read a script you always have that perspective. If it's a television show, you kind of imagine it on a television, with television angels and everything. When you read a movie script, you really flesh it out with movie stars and the whole thing.

    • Michael Weatherly: I have almost a phobia about [interviews]. I get all paranoid and freaked out. I'll lie in bed going 'Why did I say that?'

    • Michael Weatherly: I always had three pair of pants, four shirts, a sweater and jacket. Now I have, like, three rooms of clothes. Of course, I have terrible taste.
