Benicio Del Toro
I remember when being a 'a company man' was a badge of honor; today in Silicon Valley it may brand you a loser or, in the best case scenario, someone afraid to take risks.

So I made a request. I said to the writers, I have a minor request that I just want to play a loser.

'Backwash' is an old-school, slapstick-y romp between three eccentric loser friends who inadvertently rob a bank, armed solely with a salami and a sweat sock, and then find themselves on the run pursued by singing cops. It's kind of a classic piece, a sophisticated piece, if you will.

It's hard to think of yourself as a loser at 2 years old.
Washington - having spent a lot of time there, I grew up there and have spent a lot of time there recently - is largely defined by detailed analytical views and policy choices that are not very good. You know, each policy choice has a winner and a loser, right? Somebody's ox is getting gored.
I actually think the reason I am interested in certain parts is because I was such a dweeb in high school. When you are such a loser, it's a helpful way in to a lot of characters because even very powerful people are not all that powerful, really.
I was a loser in high school.
Seann William Scott
I'm a bad loser, but I'm not a good winner either - I like to rub it in people's faces!

I was recently asked about the business side of 'Biggest Loser,' but as long as we entertain people, we can keep coming back and making a difference. It's a delicate balance, but one feeds off the other. I feel so good about the show - it's uplifting and inspiring and entertaining at the same time.
I always wanted to film 'Biggest Loser' in Hawaii. We could call it, 'Come on I wanna weigh you.'
I felt like a loser. I was unhappy as a child most of the time. We were terribly poor and I hated my size.
