I'm not a broad comic, but I think I can be funny and I think I make people laugh.

I'm part of that generation that grew up watching TV, and being an actor was all about being on TV or being in films.

I've worked in the theater, television, and films. A five-hour TV series is certainly more time than a character I'd be playing in a film.

My thing is, I like playing guys who have a really interesting internal monologue.

My favorite television show of all time is 'Hill Street Blues.' I think it's the show that is to television what Pele was to football or Muhammad Ali was to boxing.

One of the things I learnt over the years is that there is a craft to writing, like there is a craft to acting. I hadn't done my apprenticeship as a writer. I did try to be a writer for hire but I'm not any good at it.

One of the things I liked about playing Tony Gates in 'Line of Duty' was that I don't think he gave much thought to justifying his actions until he was under investigation.

When I was growing up and watching 'The Sweeney,' the notion of police officers being an inch away from the villains that they're chasing was commonplace.
