I'm a satirist, so I've got boxing gloves on if the person is worthy of satire. But I'm not an assassin. If that ever happens, it's only because something happened during the interview that got me going, and then I had to translate my feelings to the mouth of the character.
I would love to play an unexpected character. Really raw and simple and not a cliche - something rugged. People like to put actors in boxes.

This character matters so much to so many people. I want to get that right. I want to do it justice. I want people to believe in the character and have faith in the character and kids to grow up wanting to be Superman. Or, God forbid, there's people who are going through hardship and wishing that this character would turn up and save them.
Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
I wish I had played team sports. I think every kid should. Teamwork builds character - teaches people about leadership and cooperation.

I'm not a child star, but you could say that I've grown up on TV.

From there I went on to become the most notable black comic on 'Saturday Night Live' since Eddie Murphy.

I don't really know Lance, but he comes over to me and goes, 'Hey, I just wanted to let you know I'm a fan of 'Pretty Little Liars' and I'm rooting for your character.' It was surreal!

You do Batman right, and he's going to be popular. He's a great character. I was once asked by somebody if writing 'Batman' was like holding a Ming vase or something.

When you choose your friends, don't be short-changed by choosing personality over character.
W. Somerset Maugham
