Edward Whitacre, Jr.
My dream is to one day just be me and my guitar. I'm working myself to the core. Who am I, underneath everything else? I'm still on that journey, to find that core.
Can't do it, simply cause underneath 'em is too ugly.

Even the roughest character, underneath all that hurt, is someone who wants to love and be loved.
As a surfer, I think of places like a wave: you see one thing on the surface. But you always know there's something different going on underneath.
Words like feminism or democracy scare me. They are words with barnacles on them, and you can't see what's underneath.
I discovered the fun of genre is... you get to explore your fears, and you get to use the metaphor of the genre - whether it's a giant monster or a... 12-year-old vampire. Whatever it is, you can sink something underneath the surface and make a personal film under the guise of great fun romp.
Yakima Canutt was famously John Wayne's stunt double, and in the Western movie 'Stagecoach,' there is a fantastic scene where there are some horses thundering along, pulling a carriage. He climbs out onto the horses and drops down underneath them, so he's being dragged along, and then he lets go.
Civilization is hideously fragile and there's not much between us and the horrors underneath, just about a coat of varnish.
As an actor, you are always looking for subtext, for layers, for what's going on underneath.
I love my city and I feel like the majority of the people that are in the city are people from other cities.

There is a very definite Russian heart in me; that never dies. I think you're born and you live your life with it and you die with it.

Underneath all the skin, we're all the same.
I rode with four street-clothes cops in the East Village. I spent six weeks riding with them every day - in street clothes, with a vest underneath.
I like the songs to appear very simple and to flow by without any kind of hiccup, but there has to be this impression of other currents underneath. Like if the songs aren't, on some level, multidimensional, we lose interest in them.

Talk about songs that make me cry: Track 7 on the 'Phineas and Ferb' soundtrack, 'Summer (Where Do We Begin?).' When you get to the part about sitting with your brother underneath the shade of a big tree in the backyard, ohmygod. Turn on the waterworks.
Anyway, so what he did was, he spread sheets for 100 yards and underneath them he'd put things so there were bumps and different levels and on top he'd put little bushes and if you didn't look to close, it looked like snow!
A more accurate statement would be that I was the first person since Jedi who was permitted to stick a fork into the piecrust to see if there was still any steam underneath.
From a writer's standpoint, each character and story presents its own unique challenges and delights. I'm deeply curious about all of my characters, and I love peeling away their layers to see what's underneath their skin, or secreted deep within their hearts.
