He has appeared in numerous award-winning productions in Chicago as well as off-Broadway in New York.

You don't really have time to do other than what's written. It's very rigid. Shows have a certain rhythm that nobody wants disturbed. So a lot of that doesn't take place on television, at least the television I was doing at the time when I first started.More Gary Cole quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

You can go out in a good movie and look bad as well.More Gary Cole quotes [08/14/2008 12:08:00]
It was really executed well, from the art direction to the wardrobe to everyone else. And I have to say, two really exceptional directors who did three each. Roxann [Dawson] did the first three and Jeremy [Webb] did the second three. And I think they really were very meticulous in getting the right tone because it is both. It isn't dour and it isn't grim, but it's not a romp either. It's truthful and it has room for both of those things.More Gary Cole quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
