71574. I never felt a need to manipulate my career from the outside – try to be someone I wasn’t to get ahead. – Randy Harrison

71575. A lot of my friends are club people. It’s not me. It’s funny to represent that, because it’s not me. I don’t fit into a gay club setting. It’s just ironic that I represent that somehow. – Randy Harrison
