Memorable quotes (on/off the set)
"Many forms, sizes and colors, I think there are heroes in sports, in life...It would be cliché to say my dad, my granddad. I think I'm a fan of people who were brave, my aunt, my grandmother, those are my heroes."
"I think people would be surprised at how much we curse when we screw up. I'm like somebody with Tourette's Syndrome."
"Oh every day I fight for the integrity of the character and where I want it to go. Sometimes I think the writers are better at writing story than dialogue, or maybe I just understand the character better than they do. But they do allow us to collaborate. I just go to see Nick's apartment after 43 episodes, and I had to tell them to get rid of some stuff."
"Another challenge? Getting up at 6:30 in the morning to go act. It's not fun acting that early in the morning or acting at 4 A.M in the middle of the night or in the morning when you're really tired. That's a challenge. What a luxurious problem to have."

George's best friend is Jorja Fox (ex. Sara Sidle, CSI)
