I'd love to come back every summer and do a play here. It's a definite challenge - we had less than three weeks for rehearsal, so we came in running.
Why don't we save time and you just tell me what I want?
It's not that I'm asking for that, and I don't know how to explain it. I just think there's room for the disenfranchised. I don't think we have to sweep it under the rug.
We talk about, you know, diet and that we shouldn't give our kids big things and obesity and fast food. Well, you know there are people who don't have that problem because they're not getting any food! We have so many deep problems and issues facing humanity.
At this point in my life, I like the security of a job, while still having time for my young son and to pursue other creative work.
I always get involved with the environment because once you go past the tipping point with the environment, you don't get it back.
I like big casts. The experience of working together, that human contact - those are my roots, professionally.
Republicans will destroy the country... that comes from a Republican sensibility, which is to destroy the fabric of the psychological well being of most men. They have gotten too involved with making money. They do not understand the real values, the democratic values, of the emotions and the commit
I jumped into acting because it was fun. It was tougher when I had to take my fun seriously.
Cable has become something much bigger than expected, ... so that when a show like 'Law & Order' is seen three times a day, five days a week ... when you get that kind of exposure all the time and don't get paid anything, there's got to be something done.
At least Manhattan, in terms of danger and eccentricity, is much more of a theme park now. You couldn't really shoot the old Law & Order in New York today. It's a different city.

Probably as a serial rapist,
It's over. The franchise is dead. The press killed it. Your magazine f**king killed it. New York Magazine. It's like all the critics got together and said, 'This franchise must die.' Because they all had the exact same review. It's like they didn't see the movie. Got any more gum?
From what I've heard about Israel and its sites, landscape, beaches and historical and religious heritage, it is a wonderful place to visit. I told my friends that I'm going to Israel because I'm a New Yorker, and a New Yorker goes to Israel.
I cannot explain something that no one has ever figured out.
Success can be obviously a two way street.
No one ever takes my side.
You look around New York, and we are surrounded by restaurants and food trucks, and we celebrate food in this city like no tomorrow.
Although Sex And The City was a great show and I loved that for what it was, the response to it became so much more than the show, ... That became, in a sense, annoying. So it was great to go back to something I knew, but I could explore more, recreate, bring more nuance.
It's terrible. We're starting to look like Hong Kong, or Singapore at worst. Pretty soon you won't be able to throw a piece of gum on the street.
I don't think they should have thrown out the baby with the bath water,
People are so phobic and crazed about this word 'commitment.' It's weird. Everyone has taken this word to a new height of morality.
I never talk about my private life. When you're in this business it becomes so precious. I don't understand when people open up about themselves to the press.
As soon as I feel people are talking too much about my character, it's time to leave.
In society, we have these unspoken rules of conduct, these 'shoulds.' Even though we pride ourselves on being a democracy, there are all these ways we say you 'should' behave. But what if you're living your life by the 'shoulds' and you're not really living your life?
Law and Order' is completely story-driven and completely characterless, really. If you do that format for five years and you're an actor, you're bound to get bored. It wears on you. And it was really wearing on me.
As an actor you appreciate the security of a job. But I don't ever want to get too comfortable.
