"Right now, I’m still pretty tied up with Castle; I have a couple of years of that to go. We’re having a great time, we’re telling some great stories and we’re enjoying it. Joss and James have done so much for me, I’m not the guy that goes knocking at their door and goes, ‘Do some more for me!’ You know what I mean?
