They [his parents] wanted me to be educated — a doctor or a lawyer. They weren’t happy that I chose the arts. They wanted me to have a good life. It’s ironic that I made the leap in a different way.

[Upon winning an Emmy for his role in The West Wing] I’ve never wanted to do anything but act. It saved my life, it’s the reason I get up in the morning, it’s my opiate. The prize for me was always getting the next gig so I could do this wonderful thing that I love. So this, my friends, is deliciously redundant.
