I then had to screen test against like, three guys from Australia, three guys from London, four guys from New York, five guys from LA. It was like American Idol. It was like ‘go home… go home…’ and ‘you stay… you stay. “I don’t know how I got it but I will have to say, I’ve been on my own since I was 16 years old and that’s a long…
“What’s up with that shit? He’s got to stop and face his demons. He’s always running. What’s he always running from? I don’t know.

” You know, it’s not about the fans feeling sorry for me, it’s more about like I just don’t like shoving anything down anyone’s throat, you know what I mean?

This week’s Paulisms – January 2, 2017. “I don’t particularly like directing episodes that I’m in. I’d much rather direct things that I’m not in. I don’t know how Mel Gibson did it with ‘Braveheart.’ I’d much prefer not to do it.” – Paul Wesley.
