|"He was so subtle, I didn't get it at first. He is an instinctive film actor--everything is internalized." --"Fresh" director Boaz Yakin quoted in Us, August 1994.|
|On working with Dustin Hoffman in the film version of "American Buffalo": "I don't think I was taller than him, but he still wanted a platform or a stool to stand on whenever we had a scene together." --Sean Nelson to Kenya Dilday in Detour Magazine, November 1996.|
|"I think his future is extremely bright. He's as talented, if not more, as all the hot young actors around at the moment. He has the potential to be Tom Cruise, someone who started out young and went all the way. He could be as big a star as anybody out there.
"In this business, there are a lot of temptations for a young man, and he'll have to deal with those. But he's very levelheaded, and he has a very supportive family--his mother was on the L.A. set (of 'The Wood') every day." --Rick Famuyiwa quoted in New York Post, August 7, 1999.
