#Quote
1You can maybe be artistic and really original and creative, but as long as it's got that funniness at the root of it, then certain people are going to love it just because they need a laugh.
2To open the majority of peoples' minds to something new is difficult. I always think that, as long as it's funny underneath, then you can argue that a teaspoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.
3There are no real guidelines or maps in Australia as to how to write a show, whereas in Hollywood it's where the TV industry is created and there's a lot of work that goes into development.
4The last few years I've had to force myself to go out and be more involved the world because I can get a bit more cerebral and escape into characters and the world of characters. But now I guess I escape into stories about 'Wilfred.'
5My dad was in the army so we moved around a lot and I changed schools every year and had to make new friends, and I found that if I was the funny guy I could do that easier.
6I'm sort lucky in that for me, I'm a writer now. I started as an actor but I'm a writer and so things like 'Wilfred' and shows like that are where I escape to.
7I don't get that many scripts. Back in Australia, I've pretty much done my own shows and really no work outside of that. It's only now that I'm starting to read some Hollywood film scripts, and I've read some really great ones.
8British comedy - which has been a big inspiration to me for many years - is very different to Australian comedy and different again to American comedy.
9Back in Australia, I did foster care for sick cats for years, and I was always most successful with the animals when I was given two - a brother and sister.
10The writer's room is a really interesting place to be.
11So many young pets burn out in Hollywood, it's crazy.
12I've always been fairly confident in my acting.
13I see something that seems like standard fare, that I can imagine any number of actors playing, and I'm generally not interested.
14I had a good theater career for years. I played Hamlet when I was 22, and I've played some really great roles.
15I do have a couple of pets, but I am determined to keep them out of the media spotlight.
16Eventually, I want to be a creative producer that isn't in things. The acting is more of a secondary thing for me now.
17Dogs are more of a responsibility than kids - you can send a kid off to their grandparents or a nanny, but with a dog you can't do that.
18[on 'Wilfred'] There's nothing unusual here. All dogs have Australian accents.
#Fact
1In 2012, he was ordered to pay $325,000 to a bus driver he attacked when he was refused a seat at a Melbourne race course, in 2007. He pleaded guilty in 2008 to unlawfully assaulting Mr Hosny, but he was spared a conviction so he could continue his lucrative acting career in the US.
