Rick: (on being Latino; in an October 2007 interview) Being in LA is a great thing to 'cause the Mexican culture just embraces us too. So there's a lot of pride. There's a lot of love out there. And I think now is the most perfect time to be Latino and just be proud of it and just embrace it.

Rick: (on deciding to become an actor) Since I was 10, I can remember making the decision. I did a church play that left a profound feeling in me. My mom would take me to the theater for movies and plays and I think that subconsciously pushed me. I told my mother, 'I wanna act, where do I do that?'
