Kenny Johnson's Quotes

  • In my work, I just want to tell a story and help people go on a journey. I'm glad any fans that I do have and I'm usually not aware of it until I get out there or read a message board. I want to thank everyone who follows my work.
  • I love people! I am a people person. I am a very curious human being. I am very interested in what people have to say. I love cultures too, so I am always traveling. I am very thankful for anybody who follows anything I do. I never take it for granted that people are out there watching. I want to thank them for giving me the time.
  • On portraying Ham Dewey, one of the female writers on the show wouldn't even look at him: I would have to tell her, It's not me! It's this character! How do you think I feel? I've gotta play the guy! But it really, really makes you feel a certain way towards him. I'm not trying to make him a sympathetic character in any way whatsoever. I'm trying not to judge it personally. It's a very tough line to draw, because I'm married, and this is the exact kind of guy that I'd never want to be."People automatically say, what a sleaze. There is a sense of denial that this guy is in. But I know real cops. When they're paired up together, they get so close, you know? There's no excuse for it, but these guys do have a connection. They fight like cats and dogs, but when they get in a really messed-up situation, they're there for each other."
