“Our job is just a job, you go to work, we go to work. If I’m at home working, I love coming home and sleeping in my bed. I was working a lot of other different places, but she comes to visit.” he added.
“You know, we both come from the theater. She’s on Broadway right now doing To Kill a Mockingbird, I’m out in the world doing movies. We understand the bond we have, the commonality of experiences, the commonality of joy of the theater and of our lives and of our daughter’s life, so it’s easy for us to stay connected.” he said.
