1 I love Facebook. I could brush my teeth with Facebook.
2 [re his infamous homophobic remark] For the last six years of my life, I’ve been fighting off bigots. It’s, like, bigots want to embrace me, and I politely take their arms from around my neck. I don’t share their views, never have.
3 [re his reaction to real-life serial killings behind Blue Caprice (2013) ] I was thoroughly embarrassed, because in my community, whenever you hear some really foul [crime], we’re holding our breath to see whether the person is black or white. He’s always either a crazy white man or a brother.
4 [on being fired from Grey’s Anatomy (2005)]: I apologized and showed my remorse for what I said and for the pain I caused anyone. If a black man can’t get forgiveness in this country, when so many other people like Robert Downey Jr. and the governor of California get second and third chances… I think that says a lot about race and this country where we stand.
5 I’m no longer going to play thugs or debauched cops that I can’t possibly make complex characters. I’m bigger than that. I owe too much to too many good people at the Goodman, Arena and Playwrights Horizons.
6 Even if I’m playing a bad guy, I work hard to make him multi-leveled and interesting.
7 You don’t have the time to “make the time” to do anything. You have to do it now!
