I didn't realize House would be the central character, more the bitter comic relief appearing occasionally. I relish his wounded nature - the lameness, the scarred Byronic hero.
I think there's a possibility that comic book movies are getting a tiny bit better on the one hand because they're no longer made by executives, who are, you know, ninety-year-old bald tailors with cigars, going, 'The kids love this!'
I think the reason I choose the comic approach so often is because it's harder, therefore affording me the opportunity to show off.
Rita Mae Brown
I write books, I write for comic books, I give lectures... I live. And when the opportunity comes to do a picture, I do a picture.
I'm a comic, and I'm supposed to outrage and make people laugh, Part of makin' people laugh is to shake up their thinkin'. That's what I came here to do.

I had to find my way of translating the excitement you get when you're reading comic books to the big screen.
My only problem with fans is when they turn pro. For example, when all the professional writers were fired by DC in the '60s, they brought in a generation of comic book fans who would have paid to have written these stories.
If I wasn't a comic or TV star, I really wanted to be a photojournalist.
If I wasn't a comic or TV star, I really wanted to be a photojournalist. That was my other dream job.

My roles in comedies from 'Austin Powers' to 'Tommy Boy' to 'Wayne's World,' were sort of comedic 'straight man' parts. My character on 'Parks & Recreation' is the comic relief in a comedy. To play a character that appears strictly for laughs is sort of new for me and really fun.
We have to do a film parody for Comic Relief. We can't decide which film to parody at the moment. Any ideas welcome, but not Spiderman owing to costume being too tight.

I used to go to the Cleveland Comedy Club all the time. If there was a comic I liked, I'd go see him two or three times that week. Bob Saget was one of those guys.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
