(2012, on landing Revolution) I was in Las Vegas, being a danger to myself. I got a call from my manager. She said, "Jon Favreau and Eric Kripke would like to meet you. They're doing a show. It's also produced by J.J. Abrams." I said, "What time do I gotta be there?" I flew back immediately, we met on a weekend, and they sort of just pitched me the show, what it was and what it was about. And given that and the pedigree that it came with, I said, "What do I gotta do? I'm in." And that's where it went from there. It's been nothing but joy ever since.
