TV scares the shit out of me.
With all due respect, it’s a business about numbers and how many people are watching.
When you work in the system the way I do at the moment, occasionally you come across material that can seem like you’re going to compromise your integrity as an artist by participating in it.
That’s scary because you think, ‘How am I going to make it out of TV alive?’

I think the hardest thing in network TV is to maintain truth, to maintain integrity in the work and integrity in the characters and the easiest thing is to go to the classic network, ‘Yeah,’ the dishonest, easy approach and I just can’t live with myself to do that. I don’t want to do that. I would rather just do another job.
