    • Silas: (What attracted him to play Haywire) Well, I've always been interested in people who are fundamentally different on a psychological level. That is the fun of being an actor, to really explore the imaginative world. The farther you get away from your day-to-day life, the more fun it is. It wasn't something I wanted to turn down, because it wasn't the typical rapist or mean, run-of-the-mill bad guy. He was a bad guy who had a very specific disorder. The specificity was more interesting to me. He wasn't your garden variety thug.

    • Silas: (How he got his part in Prison Break) I went in to read for another role during pilot season almost three years ago. I go in to read for this regular part and they are like, "Great. That is fine." I leave, I'm on vacation with my family for a few weeks on the East Coast, and they call me to say, "We don't want you for that, but maybe for this one or two-part role. Can you come back and audition?" I was at a point in my career where I was like, "I've played crazy before, so I'm not gonna leave Maine to come back L.A. to audition for something you just saw me for, and for a part that is my stock and trade." So I basically said no, and they called back to make me an offer and said, "It is one, maybe two episodes." "Great. No problem." It turned into this wild ride.
