I like working. I wish I could say I made a deliberate choice to comedy, but it's just what came my way. It's what the studios wanted to make.

It's a joyful day at work, making your friends laugh.
John C. Reilly

I think romance is a tool, comedy is a tool and drama is a tool. I really just want to tell stories that challenge the viewer, move people, make you laugh, perhaps push an idea about being open-minded but never settle on a genre or an opinion. I hate genre. I like movies that are original in their approach.
Adults will not necessarily laugh at the same thing as their children.
Richard C. Armitage
