Acting is a win-win situation. There is no risk involved. That's why I get tired of hearing actors who try to make out that there's a downside to it. Fame is an odd thing. It bugs you a little bit, but it's really not bad.
In Hollywood if you're good looking, tall, have okay teeth and nice skin, the odds of being successful are great. If you're short and fat, it's a different story. But as long as you look like a leading man type, half your job is done already.
Acting may be how I've made my living, but music has always been my passion.
Extra work [in film] is boring for the extras, and I started to feel like an extra with lines -- it wasn't that challenging to me. So I made a record and...the Nashville community really embraced me. But I gotta tell you, after a couple of years of being out on the road with three other guys in a van...you have a real appreciation of somebody coming to your trailer door and saying, "Mr. Corbett, can we get you a cappuccino?" What I found was, in the two years that I stopped doing it, I really missed it and liked the environment of a movie set and the relationships.
My job [on the set] is to suck it in and try not to [mess] up my words.
I was raised Catholic and I was an altar boy, though my father was a Jehovah's Witness and my mother was Jewish. I become a born-again Christian for a short time in the '80s; I've been to some Buddhist temples. I don't have any labels on me now...
