I would bend over backward to be back on Grey's. Any day, I'll choose lying in bed with Katherine Heigl looking over me over getting thrown against walls by supernatural persons at 5 in the morning.— Jeffrey Dean Morgan
The most colossal Jeffrey Dean Morgan quotes that may be undiscovered and unusual
I love playing a villain. I think that there's something freeing about that, and it's a different kind of challenge. More than anything, for me as an actor, it's about challenging myself and doing as many different things as I can.
I'm learning a lot how to be good at what I do and also how lucky I am and take it all in and be grateful for all this late in life success I've been having and it's good to have people that have been around and successful for awhile and work with them and see how they behave and it's why they are who they are and why they're still successful.
I don't know that I feel comfortable playing a villain;
as a matter of fact I probably don't feel comfortable, which is why I like it so much. It's just an opportunity to try something different.
Working exterior nights in Vancouver, when it's raining and snowing, is a little daunting, when you haven't slept.

If you look at my résumé, I've more often than not played a very solid, decent human being.
The last decade has been a little rough, so I'm hoping to start this one on the right foot.
I can't say enough about Ireland. I can't. I'd move there.
More and more of our finest actors are finding room for themselves in the world of television - but I truly believe it's because some of the best stories are being told there.
I just didn't want to get bored playing a character, and that's kind of the benefit of doing films; you've lived with a character for four or five months and that's it, and you walk away from that character and you feel like you told a story.
There's no man, alive or dead, who's going to fault you for living.
Certainly I think being an absentee farther helps in adding a layer of conflict.
Sometimes in TV, it can get really stale, especially if you're doing these 23-episode years. It's a lot of work, and to put your family through that, on a location, is not always the greatest thing in the world.

The work I'm doing on 'Watchmen' is mind bending and physically just hard.
