I don't know a lot of agents like Al Hack.
I long for the days when grosses were not even known. There was no weekend competition.
Yes, there are directors I admire, the mavericks. Altman. There are many good directors.
It's kind of interesting to be a director who is all of a sudden being an actor playing an agent. This is my whole world!
There's evidence of a social decline in direct proportion to technology and the industrialization of the motion picture industry.
Well you're talking about a long career, a lot of movies, a lot of stars. I guess working with Henry Fonda and Katherine Hepburn was a great privilege.
There are always at least five good films at the end of the year to get nominated, but generally speaking nowadays, it's more of the independent films that are recognized.
No one turns down a film with Woody; it's something everyone wants in their career as an important moment. He's such a comedic genius, without question, so I was thrilled.
