Percy: (on fan turnout at mall appearances during promotions of "Veronica Mars") It was real crazy. It was a blessing, though, because that's a big reason why I do it. You know, to meet the people out there and let 'em know I love 'em, and let 'em know, you know, God is good, and just be a good example. And it was real cool to see that people are watching us!
Percy: My mother and father have been very influential in my life, for the foundation of faith, morals and principles they have instilled in me. Whether in separate households, they both, and including they rest of my family, have always shown me unconditional love.
Percy: I was taught not to limit myself to one thing or one title. A plumber can be a plumber, a writer, a mechanic, a musician and whatever else he or she wants to be in this life.
Percy: (about working on "Veronica Mars") The experience of working with a cast and crew on a regular basis, working with a lot of outstanding and experienced actors, it elevates the game for me a little bit. It makes me feel a lot more enthused and excited about which way my career is going and what's going on in my life.
Percy: (after an interview in 2005) I'm glad to have to opportunity to talk about how good God is and how He got me to where I am. Even with all of my hard work, it's God who's bringing me to this point.
Percy: I really don't watch much TV at all. If I do, I'm probably watching sports, SportsCenter, Judge Mathis, The Sopranos, The Wire, the History Channel, or maybe a game show or something. All time favorites are Martin, Sanford & Son, and In Living Color, to name a few.
Percy: (on his audition for Wallace Fennel, his character in "Veronica Mars") I was nervous, but the good kinda nervous. If I don't get that feeling in my stomach I think that I'm not humble or just don't want it bad enough.
Percy: I think I love singing more than people love to listen to me. But I'm decent. No Luther Vandross, but I try to make it do what it do.
Percy: (about his first scene in UPN's "Veronica Mars") It was the most difficult thing I've ever done in my life. I had to convey the humiliation and isolation that Wallace felt on that flagpole but still show that he was trying to maintain every ounce of dignity he had left. I know Rob wanted to show something dark and controversial to set the stage for the show. But I was worried about backlash from the NAACP for portraying a black man taped to a flagpole. After I auditioned with that scene, I had a moment of hesitation about the role of Wallace.
