Fisher Stevens Quotes
I wanted to do an episode about Chuck having a gambling problem. I wanted to portray my addiction on the show. But I think it's a little edgy for Saturday night.
I have a bit of a traveling addiction, and, ah, yeah. I went to, ah, Bali this summer.
I like people and get along, and I'm afraid to express my anger and my rage.
And TV is not the easiest place to be dangerous or on the edge. Especially on a Saturday night.
But I used to have a bit of a gambling problem. And that would have been the answer to my prayers. It got worse when I started playing this character, too.
But I'm trying to play into this role as much as possible and be a nicer person in real life.
No, but I'm really lucky, because I'm not the superhero.
Well, I just wanted to be a person. I just wanted them to keep writing me as humanistic as possible.
But I like being nasty. I like being cranky. Especially if it's a cold day in Chicago, it's nice to just take it out on Kyle, because he's so easy to scream at, you know?
I really wanted to be born a woman. It all started there. A South American woman. And I'm upset that I was born a white Jewish male. I've been angry since.
But did I think it would last more than 13 episodes at the time? No, I didn't think that. I never know.
I use that as my responsibility on the show, to be the pragmatist.
I used to be more of a wild kid. But I've slowed down.
I'm really obsessed with the past.
It got a little boring I guess, playing the same note over and over.
You know, it's a very sexist society, Indonesia.
But basically what I like are the possibilities, and the fantasy element of the show. Not science fantasy so much, but fantasy, the humanistic elements and how people relate when they're in a dire situation or comedic situation.
The reason I took Early Edition - besides the fact that I liked it - was that it enabled me to start a production company in New York City. It's a low-budget film company to produce and direct movies.
Unfortunately, the public might not know that we get a script usually two days before shooting. So sometimes I'm shooting an episode and don't even know how it's going to end because I haven't read that yet.
