The most exciting acting tends to happen in roles you never thought you could play.
I have a lot of faith in people.
I'm a con artist in that I'm an actor. I make people believe something is real when they know perfectly well it isn't.

When you end a successful sitcom, the most sensible thing to do is go back to the theater.
I gave up shame a long time ago.

It's a very tough time for the playwright. Broadway has become almost a musical comedy theme park with all these long-running shows.
Time sneaks up on you like a windshield on a bug.
I can't imagine doing an hour-long dramatic series because it's so much work. A sitcom is a wonderful gig. You work from 10 to 4 every day, it's fun, and you get to live at home.

I'd sleep under a Vermeer.
