#Quote
1I don't look for Jason Bateman vehicles. I played a ton of team sport growing up, and team wins are just incredibly gratifying. Guys like Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn, Sacha Baron Cohen, they do things you love to watch. I like to do the other half.
2(On quitting drinking) I was never at a place where rehab would have been appropriate. Booze was what would make me want to stay out all night and do some blow or smoke a joint or whatever, so shutting that off was key. It's like ketchup and French fries - I don't want one without the other. So that's the moment: Do you want to continue being great at being in your twenties, or do you want to step up and graduate into adulthood?
3(On his career - Details Magazine, 2010) This isn't a way to make a living that you can have any control over. You can't kiss the boss's ass and work extra hard to get that promotion. Things are going better now than ever, but in 24 months? I could be hearing crickets.
4[on his past drinking] As disciplined as I am. I'm also a huge hedonist. If my fun level is like a 6 when I'm out, why not take it to a 10? That's how I was with drinking. If I'm buzzed, let's get drunk. And if I'm drunk, let's black out. I mean, why not? I didn't understand why you'd stop.
5My goal is to get another 30 years out of this business. So I need to figure out the fuel to do that. And so far, I think it's respect and quality and company, not celebrity or box office or stardom. It's not a sprinter's approach. It's more like a long-distance thing. You can stick around a lot longer if you kind of slow-play it.
6I would rather do three or four small parts every year as opposed to some of the lower-hanging fruit that might get my name above the title. If you take that big paycheck for that, it's going to be real high-profile, you're going to be famous for a couple of weeks, and then your career is over and you've got to make sure you don't spend all your money before you die.
7This is a tough town to live in if you're not relevant. I'm not making my decisions based on the fear of that. But there's a reason people have a long career. And it's because they're doing respectful work. I really want to be in that group.
8I've been offered a couple of leads in some movies that really suck. I mean, you know, if they're offering me the lead, the script ain't that great. The stuff that's good, I'm a little further down the cast list.
9I have a tendency to evolve into William Shatner, with my big fat face.
10By definition, gay is smart. I see plenty of macho heterosexual idiots, but nine times out of 10 you can have a great conversation if you find a gay guy.
