I liked dark, urban stories like ‘Peter Gunn,’ which was a detective series on network TV when I was a little boy. I grew up in a farmtown in the Midwest where not much exciting happened. I liked the idea of lives lived at night and the shadowy characters who lived in that demi-monde.Michael Emerson
I’m the worst at a computer.Michael Emerson
It’s not really an easier racket than acting is. For some reason, I guess it had – the rejection of an illustrator’s life is less penetrating than the rejection of an actor’s life. So I was able to manage that. But all the while, I still nursed that old dream of being an actor.Michael Emerson
I was a housepainter and a landscape nursery man, and all these various odd jobs I had, and started doing community theater.Michael Emerson
This is this thing I harp on: Sometimes acting can be a self-defeating psychological enterprise if we feel like we’re desperate, if we feel like we’re beggars at the door, praying that someone will take pity on us and give us a job. It would be so much better to feel like we’re tradesmen.Michael Emerson
