I like to have a regimen. I don't like to be fancy free.

One of the biggest misconceptions about me is that I'm a comedian, which I'm not. A comedian is someone who can stand up in front of an audience and make you laugh. I've never done stand-up and I never will. I'm a comic actor. My comedy comes through my characters. ---->>>

At the end of the day, even if my part is a bit goofy, the key thing is that I'm doing what I love to do, and that's to make people laugh. ---->>>

I am the common man. I'm polite, I love my family and I play by the rules. And sometimes I get pushed around. That's my lifestyle, and that's what I try to bring to characters. ---->>>

We went through all the scenes and they became kind of funny and they expanded a little bit and because it seemed to be working so well in the movie, they added a couple of things later on in the movie and that's how it turned out. ---->>>

I love comedy. Playing the underdog, and getting the laughs is my form of entertainment. I could think of nothing different that I would want to be doing at this time in my life. ---->>>

At the end of the day, the numbers that we're hearing are not going to be totally correct or not correct at all. ---->>>

I think I'm the only actor in the history of film who got to slap Sam Jackson on the face and butt and lived to tell about it. ---->>>

I really enjoyed working on 'Dumb & Dumberer' with Cheri Oteri, maybe because we are both into improvisations. We were meant to act together. ---->>>

I'm not a joke guy; I'm not a stand-up comic. ---->>>

I can't do comedy that is cutting and vicious. If I knew I'd said something that was going to make someone feel bad, well, that supersedes everything. ---->>>

I don't believe I've ever played a hip dude. I don't think I would have the wherewithal to do that. ---->>>
