Here is what the 33-year-old actor had to share with the mag:
On joining True Detective season two: “Yeah, I’m really excited. I’ve just been prepping. It’s been almost a full year since I’ve been on camera, so I’m itching, man. I’m overdue. You’ve just got to grind it out. …”
On taking a year off: “Yeah, I mean it was just showing a lot of patience on my end and turning a lot of stuff down because I wanted to be a part of it. And having this meeting with Nic Pizzolatto, it kind of brought me back to when I was here in New York and why I wanted to be an actor, why you struggle and why you don’t quit. … I loved that first season of it so much. It’s just unlike anything I’ve seen in, you know, I don’t know when. And it was so grounded. It could really happen. This is very similar, and I love that. It makes it more relatable. It makes these guys more real. Nowadays, it takes f–king balls to stand by that and do it that way.”
On starring in a Call of Duty spot: “I’m not a gamer, but I mean it’s hard not to get hooked when you get exposed to it. It’s creepy real!”
