Richard: Film, by far, is harder. It's not just the hours are harder; Everything is harder about film.
Richard: You know, I always want to hear the story of somebody who, because I always joke that 'I wanted to be a doctor, but my parents pushed me into acting.' Because it was so opposite that. It's so funny. My father hated what I was doing. Hated it!
Richard: (on choosing a profession) Most importantly, [the thing to ask yourself is] 'Am I gonna have fun doing this? Is this gonna be a good experience?'... And if you're not happy, I mean what kind of life is that. I think that's one of the things [you need to strive for].
Richard: The paycheck [on TV] is great. It's the greatest job in Hollywood. TV is where it's at.
Richard: When I was playing football and when I was wrestling I hated being at practice. I hated it. And when I was at rehearsal I loved it. There was no other place I wanted to be.
Richard: (on the script of "All Over the Guy") I thought it was really interesting to see the script and it was not about stereotypes, not about disease, not about any of that, but just about a relationship.
Richard: Knowing that you're going to go in and you're going to read for a gay character for an actor that can be kind of threatening.
Richard: (on theatre, TV, and film) Actually I think all three of them are completely different animals. [Stage] is more akin to doing a sitcom. And episodic is more akin to film. So theater is to sitcom as episodic is to film.
Richard: (on doing an action film) I want to do something completely different from what I'm doing on TV. Get me a gun in my hand and I want to shoot people.
