  • I think because people are passing--people that we are aware of are passing at--I don't say a great pace, but it seems like people are dropping, and I think it's just making . . . there's a consciousness and there's sensitivity to it.
  • I still have shy qualities but nobody would believe that, just because we're in the forefront and I can talk a lot of mess and I can run my mouth.
  • Television is in a different time because of reality television, so it's not as exciting.

  • Acting is therapeutic.
  • . . . because I could throw so hard when I got to college they made me a pitcher.
  • You know, I don't play the race card a lot. I'm half-black, half-white, and I'm proud of--my skin is brown. The world sees me as a black man, but my mother didn't raise me as a black man. She didn't raise me as a white guy.
  • It's no accident that I'm not married and don't have kids yet. Because, despite what I've achieved in my career, I'm always wondering when somebody's gonna tap me on the shoulder and say, "OK, the gig is up".
  • When I do tie the knot, it will be one time, for good.

  • Well, you can't compete with a 6'5" man in a wig.
  • Because I could throw so hard when I got to college, they made me a pitcher. If I had to do it all over again, I would have stuck to playing in the outfield. I loved running. I can catch everything in the outfield. I could throw people out from the fence.

  • What I love about Criminal Minds: Evolution (2005) is that Morgan [his character] is an ex-Marine, ex-SWAT. To do those things you have to be a pretty bad-ass dude. It's a great incentive to stay in shape.
  • Hopefully when you see the movie, Maybe you don't have the Orlando in your life, but you know that guy. He goes to church. He's down the street. He's one of the boys at the schoolyard. They exist.
