OWI: Do you prefer playing Matt Parkman as the nice guy we see now, or the future "morally gray" version
we saw in 'String Theory'?
GG: I always want people to think that he could turn on a dime if he had to. If I come across as nice ALL the
time it wouldn't be interesting. We all have a dark side. Don't we?

OWI: What did Matt ever do with those diamonds?
GG: Gave them to his pregnant wife Janice. She was left holding the bag... literally.

OWI: If you could play any role, what would you like it to be?
GG: I would love to play Scotty in Star Trek.

OWI: How much of the real Greg do we see on the screen? Are you anything like any of the characters we
see you play?
GG: I never fall far from the characters I play. There is always a big part of me in them. I can't help it.

: What does the immediate future hold for you?
GG: Very busy on shooting the second season and prepping a film.

OWI: Tell us about your best day on the Heroes set. Can you tell us about the worst day without hurting
anyone's feelings?
GG: The first day back on season 2. Any day of work for an actor is always his best.

OWI: Any hints for aspiring actors?
GG: Never get out of line. You are standing in a long line of other actors who have the same dream you do.
Those who stay the course WILL eventually get their shot. Never give up. If you do, you are just moving the
actors behind you in line a little closer to THEIR dream.

OWI: Any plans to direct or produce?
GG: Sure. I'm producing and starring in a film I wrote right now. So yes... it's in my future.

OWI: Who do you like to watch on screen?
GG: Terry O' Quinn on Lost... and Jenna Jameson.

Heroes Quotes

Mohinder Suresh: Evolution is an imperfect, and often violent process. Morality loses it's meaning. The question of good and evil, reduced to one simple choice: Survive? Or perish?

Claire: My dad lied to me about my entire life; my biological parents, my ability, you can’t just hide things like that! There’s got to be something on there.
Zack: If your dad’s the guy you’re describing I don’t think he’s gonna keep his secrets on the family computer.
