I have a great-great-great-grandfather who was a Confederate cavalry colonel, and I still have his military composite photo on my wall. The chemicals in the photo tint have changed over the years to the point that he looks green. One of my family members apparently still has the piece of paper that listed every thing in his pocket when he got shot.
I grew up in the South, so a huge part of our American History education revolved around the Civil War.
I love the long-form format of television. I love being able to develop a character, over a long period of time.
I think the American Western laid down a kind of subject matter that's about following your instinct or following your gut and having a sort of removed quality from your humanity. And I think Clint Eastwood helped to establish that.
About once a year, I do these long-distance relays with some friends of mine, and it takes about 27 or 28 hours to complete it.
I can't claim I'm truly a man's man, I'm just as much of a dork and a crybaby sometimes as anybody else.
