When I’m playing comedy, I never do ‘jokes.’ Sometimes I’ll deliver a line in a way I think is more likely to get a laugh, but all the best comedy is played straight. What’s funny is the way it hits the world around it or the way it hits the other characters.

When I got the offer to do ‘Weird Ernie’ in the pilot, I was living in New York, and somebody had made a mistake, and they made an offer that was supposed to be $2,500 for the job, but they offered $25,000. I couldn’t turn that down. I’d never heard of anything like that!

There’s a cumulative effect to getting good parts as a freelance actor, because you’re only as good as your last job, and you have to keep going out and getting them. Unless you’re part of the finance structure, by which I mean a bankable star, which I never was and never will be.

One of the defense mechanisms I have for the difficulties in the business, one of which is rejection, is that if I do the work, I go in, and I’m prepared and I audition and they don’t hire me, I’m always just amazed, thinking, ‘Wow! For that money, they could’ve had Bruce McGill, and they didn’t take me? I just think that’s amazing.’

I don’t work all day, every day on ‘Rizzoli & Isles,’ but I work every day. It may be a scene or two, or it may be an enormous workload, but there’s really not a lot of room for anything else, and that’s the choice I made. And that’s why I stayed away from TV before: Because I know that that’s what it is.
