Personal Quotes

[on his most memorable moment filming Glee] I can think of two moments. One moment would be shooting a scene with Kristen Chenowith where she is singing. I was sitting right in front of her and she was just belting it out. She can let loose like no other! She's singing a song and it was pretty much directly to me. I was sitting right in front of her and she was singing it to the group of people I was in. It was one of those moments where I thought, "Wow! How did I end up here?" She is so beautiful and talented.

[on his hairstyle for Glee] I had knee surgery about four months before the audition, and I cut my hair in a mohawk. I don't know why, but I did. So I decided to do it again for this audition because of this part; maybe it would make me stand out from the rest of the guys. Lo and behold, it worked out. And now I'm stuck with it.

I've been playing piano since I was 5, and started writing when I was 6 or 7. It was never a revelation I had, it was just what I did. Playing music was always a part of my life, I don't know anything else.

You don't really have time to watch TV if you work on TV.

Personal Quotes

[on missing Sarah Michelle Gellar] "I loved working with Sarah... Sarah is great. A great person. Without Sarah I wouldn't be standing here right now. So I owe her a lot."

[From "Late Show with David Letterman" (1993) on his view on L.A.] "I see L.A. as a beautiful blonde with dirty underwear"

"I'd have to say, I can share Cordelia's pain".

"[on the subject of hipness] It's just one of those things. It's like buttering an English muffin. An English muffin is hip. Because it's so good".

[on appearing as Angel in the very last "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997) episode:] "I pretty much slid right back in. It was another day of work. I'm not big with reunions, but it was fine."

[on his divorce from Ingrid Quinn:] It was great at first, but soon became a real burden. Ingrid found it tough to cope with the fact that all of a sudden I'd become public property as opposed to her husband. [June 9, 2003]

[When told that Amy Acker told a reporter that he sometimes flashes his fellow stars:] "Yeah, I pull my trousers down in the middle of a serious take to see if they can keep a straight face. I need to lighten the moment, I guess."

[on hearing that The WB, which canceled the series, has offered to return to "Angel" (1999) with occasional TV movies or a miniseries] "As far as returning to the show for a reunion, I could probably put that to bed now: I have no interest in doing that. It would have to be a bigger challenge, rather than going back to something." (May 13, 2004)

[on being cast in "Bones" (2005)] I have love and admiration for what I've done in the past, but I'm looking forward to playing this character, Seeley Booth. He's a simple guy on the outside - a cheeseburger and black cup of coffee guy. Inside, he's conflicted. (September 13, 2005)

[on the sexual tension between Booth and Brennan in "Bones" (2005)] The potential for their personal lives entering into their professional lives is, I just think, dynamic. I think we all remember when we would watch "Moonlighting" (1985). You never remembered what crimes the characters were solving and, to me, that is character work. (November 22, 2006)

[on almost turning down the part of Seeley in "Bones" (2005)] I had a difficult first meeting with [the producers] because I'm pretty frank. I was kind of in the mentality of, "This is who I am. This is me. I can offer this. But you don't have your leading lady yet." ... For me, I come from a stock of family [where] my handshake is better than a contract. And I've gotten burnt a lot on that, but I wear my heart on my sleeve and I will continue to. ... I looked at it as an opportunity to take a character, mold him and take a lot of chances. ... I personally am kind of sticking towards the attitude of what it's like to walk the fine line of potentially having a '69 Chevelle with a 396 under the hood and 375 horsepower, and the fine line of being correct as an FBI officer. (November 22, 2006) And I was kind of conflicted with some of the ideas of 'Is this going to be recent bones or . . . a recently decomposed body?' It just didn't feel right.

I didn't come from a traditional background of studying theater and doing Shakespeare. (December 27, 2006)

[about his character Seeley Booth] He's a stand-up, blue-collar guy. I know the blue collar mentality. You meet these guys, you make friends, that's all stuff that I have.

[on working with acting coach Ivana Chubbuck:] I'm learning more how to do that now, draw on my own experience. It's a style she teaches that makes sense to me. I didn't know this could be so much fun. (New York Times, December 27, 2006)

[about his mother] I always thought of her as Doris Day. (New York Times, December 27, 2006)

For me, what I was doing with "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997) and "Angel" (1999), it was all about the pain and the torture and the sense of being in the alleyway. Not to take anything away from it, but those were some learning, hard, difficult times when I didn't know what the hell I was doing. (New York Times, December 27, 2006)

I didn't grow up as child actor. I was fortunate to find this show with a small character that grew into this huge cult thing. I was like, "Let's ride it." (New York Times, December 27, 2006)

(2002) I like downtown cities, but L.A. doesn't really have one, so you have to go look for it. But you can go down there and just experience Broadway. There's a lot of stuff going on. Chinatown is fascinating. There's a restaurant that I always go to, and it's like being in San Francisco's Chinatown.

(2002) I like to escape to hotels. I'm pretty much a hotel fanatic, whether it's the Peninsula Hotel--where the people are great and it's the lap of luxury--or the Chateau Marmont. I could easily escape to a hotel for a weekend and do absolutely nothing. Just sitting in the lobby and watching people come in and out is entertaining. I can use the spa. You kind of find yourself wanting to stay once you're in the door. I've just always liked hotels. I like the bed and the sheets and everything that comes along with it.

I was walking my dog and a talent scout saw me on the street. Then from there, I got my manager, which led to me getting my first acting jobs. ... He was trying to pick me up. It was a guy, he was homosexual. You know, he knew off the bat when he met me that I was very into females, so he knew he was going to strike out on that one. But I did some research and saw he was a reputable guy. So, yeah, walking my dog kind of led me to acting. (interview in Smoke Magazine, Spring, 2008)

Mini Biography

Matthew Morrison knew he wanted to be an entertainer after participating in a theatre camp as a child. He attended NYU's TISCH School of the arts in the CAP21 program before joining the cast of Footloose. He was a member of the boy band LMNT, briefly, before he redevoted himself to Broadway in Rocky Horror. Hairspray has been his big break.
IMDb Mini Biography By: Christina Trivigno

Mini Biography

It took a summer of acting in a children's theater group to convince Matthew Morrison that he wanted to become an actor. He auditioned and attended Orange County High School of the Arts, and followed that with NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, although he didn't enjoy his college foray. Despite a regulation that students couldn't audition in the first two years at NYU, he got himself an agent and dropped out from NYU. His musical debut was in the musical version of Footloose which was then followed by The Rocky Horror Picture Show. His big break, however, was in Hairspray when he landed the part of Link Larkin. It was after this role he made a debut into the television and film world, with small roles in Sex and the City, Hack, Encino Man, and others. His self-proclaimed favorite role he did in television was in 'Once Upon a Mattress', which was a musical for TV that starred Carol Burnett. He was nominated for a Tony for his role in The Light in the Piazza, and eventually left the show in late 2005. He dabbled some more in roles between the television, film, and theater world. After starring in the Lincoln Center production of South Pacific as Lt. Cable in 2008, he took on the role of "Will Schuester" in the upcoming Fox series 'Glee' which premiers Fall 2009.

Personal Quotes

[When asked in an interview whether the widespread rumor that he is John Wayne's grandson is true] Oh, God! That is just a rumor, but I would have no shame in perpetuating it. I'll be John Wayne's grandson! You know, his real name was Marion Morrison -- and if you look at pictures of him and me, it's quite uncanny.

[on the newer movie version of Hairspray] I've heard the rumor about John Travolta playing Edna Turnblad and it'd be interesting, but I want Harvey [Fierstein] to do it; he's the man - or woman - for the job. They might see me for Link, but they'd probably go for Justin Timberlake.

[on working on Broadway] - There were all these beautiful, beautiful dancers. As a straight guy I had some room. There were the shared interests in singing and dancing, and I always find dancing with someone very evocative and sexual. I definitely hooked up with a lot of girls when I was a young guy on Broadway. It was exciting. Very joyous and free.

I'm not comfortable with the idea of my sex appeal, but I know in my job I have to use it. I wish I could say I got to this point in my career based on my talent, but I don't think that's true.

Date of Birth
13 January 1966, Lewiston, Maine, USA

Birth Name
Patrick Galen Dempsey

Dr. McDreamy

5' 10½" (1.79 m)

Mini Biography

Patrick Dempsey has lived two charming but separate lives on film and television. From an exuberant, somewhat awkward charmer in college comedy films of the late 1980s and early 1990s, he has morphed spectacularly into a dreamy, wavy-haired television hunk of the new-age millennium and this seductive new image has since spilled off into romantic lead roles back on the large screen as a slightly offbeat, self-effacing Prince Charming type. Irish-American Patrick Galen Dempsey was born on January 13, 1966 in Lewiston, Maine. The youngest of three, his father, William, an insurance agent, and mother Amanda, a school secretary, raised the children in Buckfield (Maine). Patrick, who was diagnosed as dyslexic (he has to fully memorize his scripts), attended St. Dominic Regional High School but dropped out before graduating.

Always interested in entertainment, Patrick studied juggling and entered several competitions. Acting was also a natural for him and, at age 15, he earned the role of the rebellious son in a Maine production of "On Golden Pond". Two years later, he won a prime role as David, the gay teen, in the Harvey Fierstein play "Torch Song Trilogy", spending several months touring the San Francisco area with the show. In between he, found supplementary gigs dancing and juggling. More opportunities came his way after winning the protagonist role of Neil Simon's "Brighton Beach Memoirs" that toured in 1984. Directed by the renowned comedy favorite Gene Saks, Dempsey started looking at the possibility of film work.

He made his movie debit in the secondary part of a Catholic student in the 1960s-era school-age comedy Heaven Help Us (1985) starring "Brat Pack" actor Andrew McCarthy. More silliness followed with Meatballs III: Summer Job (1986) and a ripe turn in the socially aware television-movie "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color: A Fighting Choice (#30.10)" (1986) in which he played an epileptic teen who sues his parents (Beau Bridges and Karen Valentine) in order to have risky brain surgery. Around the same time, he found himself in a television series entitled "Fast Times" (1986), based on the ultimate school-age film Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982), which made a star out of Sean Penn. Inheriting the Robert Romanus cool guy role of con artist Mike Damone, expectations were far too big and the television series died a quick death.

However, his movie career got on a faster track and he scored well co-starring with the worldly Beverly D'Angelo in the movie In the Mood (1987), as a young man who makes headlines pursuing older women. Life resembled art that same year when Patrick married actress and drama coach Rocky Parker, who played a bit part in the film. He was 21 and she was 48. By this time, his trademark cuteness and appeal started taking shape. The youthful 21-year old Patrick played a nerd role next in the very funny high school comedy Can't Buy Me Love (1987) with Amanda Peterson. A movie favorite for many, Patrick had reached the peak of his early career popularity. He showed a more serious side in the World War II-era drama In a Shallow Grave (1988), which presented a Cyrano de Bergerac-like storyline with Patrick as the Christian de Neuvillette counterpart, but then he went straight back to familiar territory with the college-themed comedies Some Girls (1988) with Jennifer Connelly, Loverboy (1989), and Happy Together (1989).

Stretching more in the 1990s, Patrick co-starred on stage in a 1991 production of "The Subject Was Roses" (playing the Martin Sheen film role) as the World War II soldier readjusting to civilian life with his parents (Dana Ivey and "Frasier" co-star John Mahoney). Films included the cross-country comedy-drama Coupe de Ville (1990), the action thriller Run (1991), Mobsters (1991), in which he made a stab at playing major Mafioso Meyer Lansky, Face the Music (1993) opposite "Brat Pack" femme Molly Ringwald, the title role in Bank Robber (1993), and the Mark Twain family-geared Ava's Magical Adventure (1998), co-directed by Patrick and wife Rocky. However, the couple divorced that same year. On television, Patrick played a young John Fitzgerald Kennedy in the miniseries J.F.K.: Reckless Youth (1993) (TV), Pierre Arronax in the television remake of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1997/II) (TV), and Raskolnikov in a small screen version of Crime and Punishment (1998) (TV). The rest of the decade on film was less newsworthy with co-starring or featured movie roles in Hugo Pool (1997), Denial (1998/II), Life in the Fast Lane (1998) and Me and Will (1999).

It was television that gave Patrick a shot in the arm as he progressed into the new millennium. A recurring role as Will's closeted sportscaster amour in the sitcom "Will & Grace" (1998) presented Patrick in a more mature, wry and sexier fashion. Another recurring role in "Once and Again" (1999) earned him a dramatic Emmy nomination in 2001 as Outstanding Guest Actor, and a third on "The Practice" (1997) was also extremely well-received. While the romantic comedy film Sweet Home Alabama (2002) opposite Reese Witherspoon really nailed the direction Dempsey was headed, the medical series "Grey's Anatomy" (2005), as neurosurgeon Dr. Derek Shepherd (aka "Dr. McDreamy"), gave distaff audiences the whole heartthrob package. The perfect vehicle to showcase his undeniable charisma and sharp talent for offbeat comedy, he is a two-time Golden Globe nominee and his popularity has absolutely skyrocketed. This reawakening has also swung the door open again on high-profile film offers, registering with the ladies once again in a number of light leading man parts, notably Enchanted (2007) and Made of Honor (2008).

Off-camera, Dempsey married a second time in 1999, to make-up artist and Delux Beauty founder Jillian Dempsey. The couple have three children: daughter, Tallulah Fyfe (born 2002), and twin sons Darby Galen and Sullivan Patrick (born 2007). An avid sports car racer (he has participated in the Indianapolis and Daytona Beach events), he showed off a more humanitarian side when he started the Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope and Healing in his hometown of Lewiston after his mother developed ovarian cancer. Befittingly, he has produced a sexy men's fragrance line by Avon called "Unscripted".

"I'd come in with this bitter attitude. It's not an escape, because I feel this disappointment, this jealousy." - on why he couldn't stand to go to the movies during his decade-long career-drought.

People sometimes mistake being serious with being taken seriously. And, sure, if you have a political point of view, you have every right to share it. But you have to be careful not to get too self-important. You have to find the balance between being entertaining and being preachy. And you're seeing that at the box office. People aren't buying it any more. There's a time and a place, and what we need right now is a little more positivity.

Soon after, Brody was cast as the lead in the MTV cult series Now What? His television credits also include a recurring role as Coop in ABC's "Once and Again" (1999); a recurring role as Dave in the WB's Emmy-nominated "Gilmore Girls" (2000); and standout guest starring roles in "Judging Amy" (1999), "Family Law" (1999) and "Smallville" (2001).

In addition to starring in the skateboarding movie Grind (2003), Brody's feature film credits include a very small role in the 2002 hit thriller The Ring (2002) and the dynamic lead role as Patrick in Missing Brendan (2003), opposite Edward Asner and Illeana Douglas.

Personal Quotes

I just graduated from high school, and I was working at Blockbuster. Not only did I get into movies while I was there, but I was putting away boxes and looking at the kids on the covers, it felt like windows into these seemingly perfect lives.

"I'll never have a more life changing year than last year than this last one (2003- 2004). I could win an Oscar and it wouldn't alter my daily life as much as "The O.C." (2003) has".

"You know how in The Fugitive (1993), when Harrison Ford hears sirens, he'll just subtly steer the other way? I do that when I see groups of teenage girls".

I love movie-making. I'm interested in writing and directing, and I've dabbled, but I haven't done anything I care to brag about. Yet.

I wish I came from a more pure place. I don't have something to say from the bottom of my soul. I just know how to take stuff I like and repackage it in a slightly different way.

I don't want to be one of those guys who's known for his love life and not his work.

I was giving away movies all day, and it looked really interesting. I was not into school, there wasn't anything I wanted to do. The only thing in my career counseling class that looked at all interesting was acting. I was kind of drifting. I thought maybe I'd own a surf shop.

It's very important to me to love what I do. It was important to me to find a career that I truly enjoy. You can find something that sort of excites you, that's half the battle of life.

I'd like to write a little bit. If I could trade being an actor for a writer, I'd rather be a writer. But I don't know if I'm I'm any good at it

Life is so fleeting in a way - and it's unlike me, because I'm very driven, and I get a little obsessive - but I am trying to be very Zen about it. Just enjoy it.

And, honestly, who cares if you get a good movie or not? I feel like I'm in semi-retirement already a little bit. I'm 27, and I have a house. I've decided that I'm happy with my lot in life.

[on fame] When all this started I was worried I'd become addicted to the wrong things. I don't mean drugs, but I thought I might become an egomaniac. I will admit that I've caught myself about to act like a diva But I try to keep myself in check.

He changed his name for screen-credit purposes because there's an actor named Ben Schenkman registered with the Screen Actors Guild.

Son of Austin attorney Pieter Schenkkan and poet-writer Mary Frances Victory.

Has a manager, publicist and lawyer on the payroll (he's shopping for a new agent now that his career is taking off)

He recently moved into a new apartment in Santa Monica and bought a sleek new Infiniti G35, which he concedes he spends more on than housing.

Personal Quotes

"I've always been kind of a loner. Continue to be. So, in that sense, Ryan and I are the same. I played football in Texas, but I didn't really hang out with the jocks. I did honors courses, but I didn't hang out with those kids, either. I sort of had my own group I hung with occasionally, but I've always been kind of by myself." - When asked about his high school experience.

It's a Fox thing, the bad-boy image. They're trying to type me out. There are worse things in life, you know. I'm just really excited about the opportunity.

"It's against type in the sense of my background, but it's with type in the sense that I am a loner who's new to this business and skeptical about a lot of it." When discussing differences between Ryan Atwood and himself.

"I'm somewhat puzzled about that myself. I did theater in college, so I had already started down that path, but I didn't want to major in theater at U. Va. I didn't really know what I wanted to do, so I thought I'd get a good education and do some acting at the same time" Explaining why he majored in Economics and Foreign Affairs and not theater.

Sometimes those fears (about fame) creep into the back of your head, but then you slap yourself and think, 'Oh, woe is me! People actually like me.' What a silly thing to worry about. This is a huge opportunity, and I'm excited.

I had one year of struggle. My parents were always there, but I didn't want to rely on them. Now it's moving pretty fast. I'm not rich, but obviously this is fantastic. All I know to do with money is put it in a shoe box anyway.

This whole scene is very strange. It's a very strange town and a very strange business, and it has a tendency to creep me out. Ryan's relationship with Orange County is very similar to my relationship with L.A.: fabulous wealth, and odd people behaving oddly, and I'm definitely a bit overwhelmed. I hope I'm hiding it well.

"I don't like the whole trend of people in the business treating marriage like entertainment. It's either for publicity value or because they're bored. Because they haven't done a movie in a few months, they get married instead." - On Young Hollywood weddings.

[When a Newsweek interviewer asked McKenzie if he thinks The OC should end with Ryan and Marissa getting married] "I've always pushed for the big marriage that the whole entire audience has always seen coming. Ryan and Seth walk down the aisle hand in hand."
