Quincy: (on his budding career) I'm having a really good 2007. I think I'm about three years ahead of the curve. I'm fortunate that I've been able to book some really good jobs this year.
Quincy: You have to go into every audition and be ready. Most of the time you'll go in, do OK, and be told you're not quite right for the role. That's when you need to not take it personally and turn the page to the next audition, where you might get your big break
Quincy: (on his CSI: New York role) I showed up on the set and I had a personal assistant, a trailer and person holding an umbrella over my head when it was raining. It was pretty surreal.
