You know what? I did a lot of things that were deliberate, and they all backfired. I was trying desperately to become Will Ferrell or Adam Sandler, and it did not work for me. I took a lot of leaps that I shouldn’t have, traditionally speaking. I paid the price for that. I was not as hire-able for a while. But then I just gave all that up.
I believe in making movies very inexpensively; I think that way too much money is spent on making movies. Enough movies are being made, but not enough experimental ones.

You can’t put the Hollywood sign in a movie without paying them. That is a landmark in L.A. I’m sorry, remove it from our skyline, then. You know? How dare they. That should be public domain, right? But it’s privately owned, and they enforce that. They sue people. If you see it in the movie, they’ve paid for that.
What’s great about TV, and what I love about being on ‘Parenthood,’ is you have this family. I’m now going on four years of working with the same 100 people, and that helps you feel like your life has more roots. It’s more conducive to having a family, and you’re staying in town. So that part is amazing.
We were doing press for this movie that my friends and I made for $5,000 called ‘Brothers Justice,’ that I also wrote and directed. And during the press of that, people kept saying, ‘What’s next, what’s next?’ And my best friend Nate and I – Nate produced it – we kept saying, ‘Oh, we’re gonna do a car-chase movie next.’
They’re making so few movies that you really just have to make it. It’s going to be the only way you end up getting work. I don’t believe anyone’s going to really go out on a limb and just throw millions of dollars on someone that’s not been proven. They’re going to have to show somebody something at some point.
