Bryan Batt quotes

I watch the TV or learn scripts while on the elliptical - need to get back on it!

I live a bi-coastal and sometimes tri-coastal life.

Labels don't really impress, it's the uniqueness and risk in decor that inspire.

Be fun! I don't like homes or rooms that don't have a sense of humor or have some sense of whimsy or a personality. Your home should reflect who you are, and what you love. I would never have something in my home because it's the thing to have. I have to love it and it needs some connection to me.

I am a collector of many things, but I particularly love the sterling silver mint julep cups, each engraved with the titles of the Broadway shows in which I appeared.

I changed the lyrics of 'All I Need Is the Girl' to 'All I Need Is the Job' for an audition years ago. It's a great ice-breaker - people want to laugh.

My mantra is, 'Don't be afraid of color.' What did it do to you? Do a color testing in alternate kinds of light you desire in the room because the pigment will change. And I refuse to believe that pale pale or white colors in a small room will buy you more square footage. Go with color all the way.

Put every light you have on a dimmer. Because after a certain age, we can play with the lighting and set it on how you look best on it. It's cheaper than plastic surgery.

Did Anthony Hopkins really have to be a serial killer to be in 'Silence of the Lambs?,' I don't think so, no. It's called acting, people.

Gay actors have been playing straight since Euripides.

Gray is great. People think gray is a neutral, but I think it's such a moody, intense, dramatic and sexy color. It's very sleek.

I did grow up in New Orleans. I grew up right on the lake, right across the levee.

I didn't have any role models. I really thought I was doomed to this loveless, lonely life. I didn't know any gay people until I began doing theater.

I tend to wake up in the middle of the night with ideas crying to be documented.

I think there is this steely strength beneath this beautiful veneer that a lot of women possess. I can't fathom or understand it.

It's funny... musical theater is what paid my rent and kept me going for the longest time.

There are many Broadway songs that apply to moments on 'Mad Men,' and I sing them on set all the time.

We have a costume closet at home. My family will put on a costume for any excuse.

When people ask, 'What role are you dying to play?' I always say, 'The one being written for me right now.'
