As an actor, I like as much time with the material as possible and given the opportunity, time spent with the other actors in the scene. But that is a rare luxury in working in any TV series.
Many American TV actors employ agents, managers, business managers, publicists and stylists, and are now adding digital media manager to the list. Their job is to reach out to the fans, managing websites, Twitter feeds, Facebook and Wikipedia.
I wrote 'She's a Lady' on the back of a TWA menu, flying back from London after doing Tom Jones's TV show. Jones's manager wanted me to write him a song. If I have an idea and I don't have a pad of paper, I'll write on whatever is available. What's the difference? Paper is paper.
Yeah, my dad was in the foreign service. We lived in India, Indonesia and Africa, and we traveled a lot from those places. I was 10 when we moved back, and I felt like the odd guy out. It wasn't until later that I appreciated it. But coming back I didn't know any TV shows or music, which was even worse.
I don't have a TV or watch movies. I don't like to be broadcast to, I want to participate.
If I have the TV on, it's either a Mets game or 'SportsCenter.'
Eddie Kaye Thomas
I love detail, like drawing what's on top of someone's coffee table. Maybe there's a little bowl of butterscotch candies on it, next to the four TV remotes.
It cracks me up to see these ads for TV - for Depends or for glue for your dentures. The people in them look 55 with a hint of gray. Where are the people who are falling apart? We don't see that.
I don't care if I ever work in TV again.
Anyone who's had a casual conversation with his neighbors or is cognizant of reality TV should already be petrified of democracy.
I had a prior deal in place to do a miniseries for HBO, so I'm not done with TV. But I basically want to stay in movies.
There's certain things that you can do on cable that you can't do here on network TV, so then you have to think outside the box a little bit.
I prefer to do cable TV because it allows you the time to do other things. I definitely have an eye on doing more work in features and playing different characters, but I am also a big fan of going on vacation and playing golf and going to the beach.
The thing about movies now is in a way what it always was: The screen is huge and now the sound systems are too. And you never get that with TV. Even with a home system, it's never the same.
I'm on a never-ending quest to get back on a TV series, and I want to get on 'The Walking Dead.'
YouTube videos, they're more personal and more real than a commercial on TV.
No one knows if Saddam is still alive. They keep showing old footage of him on TV saying that it's live. You know, it's like the same thing we do with Dick Cheney.
Broadcast TV is like the landline of 20 years ago.
I don't understand why people don't understand that the world of TV should look like the world outside of TV.
I always wanted to entertain. When I was little, I would sing in front of the mirror with a hairbrush or my sisters and I would make shows. I always wanted to be on TV.
That's what film can do in a way that TV and other long-form storytelling can't. It gives you this very immersive moment.
J. C. Chandor
After college, I funded my short films with acting roles in film and TV. I learned my craft through the great opportunities British television gave me as a director.
I think whatever art form you're in, whether TV, film or theater, you should know the history of who came before you and how the art form has changed or not changed and to learn from the greats.
The big difference between TV and theater is that you get to do a new play every week, so it's quite challenging, but it keeps you fresh. There's never any fear of getting stale in your performance.
I've done a lot of bad TV and bad movies. I've also done some really great things.
Whether it's being a leading man, making TV shows, being with my family, I've learned a lot.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
