actors

Washington is no place for a good actor. The competition from bad actors is too great.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Compare the cinema with theatre. Both are dramatic arts. Theatre brings actors before a public and every night during the season they re-enact the same drama. Deep in the nature of theatre is a sense of ritual. The cinema, by contrast, transports its audience individually, singly, out of the theatre towards the unknown.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Modern tourist guides have helped raised tourist expectations. And they have provided the natives -- from Kaiser Wilhelm down to the villagers of Chichacestenango -- with a detailed and itemized list of what is expected of them and when. These are the up-to-date scripts for actors on the tourists stage.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Movies are a fad. Audiences really want to see live actors on a stage.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To save the theatre, the theatre must be destroyed, the actors and actresses must all die of the plague. They poison the air, they make art impossible. It is not drama that they play, but pieces for the theatre. We should return to the Greeks, play in the open air; the drama dies of stalls and boxes and evening dress, and people who come to digest their dinner.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The great actors are the luminous ones. They are the great conductors of the stage.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The best actors do not let the wheels show.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I never said all actors are cattle, what I said was all actors should be treated like cattle.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Actors are loved because they are unoriginal. Actors stick to their script. The unoriginal man is loved by the mediocrity because this kind of artistic expression is something to which the merest five-eighth can climb.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The genuine artist is never true to life. He sees what is real, but not as we are normally aware of it. We do not go storming through life like actors in a play. Art is never real life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Many plays, are like blank checks. The actors and directors put their own signatures on them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Dustin Hoffman was the greatest. He had so much information to give and he mesmerized me. He really feels for actors who are just starting out and remembers his early days like they were yesterday.More [12/15/2005 12:12:00]
When on the set of a film, you have to play natural for entire scenes in a very unnatural environment. You have to express emotions and interact with other actors and also use your voice.More [12/20/2005 12:12:00]
Out of all the actors I have worked with, I love working with Larry Hagman the most. We were very close and it was just a wonderful time.More [03/23/2006 12:03:00]
I think it's a disgrace that English actors get taken advantage of. It's very different here.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
Some actors have opportunities and shapes given to them. Not me.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
From the beginning of the film, I thought that I was somehow in safe, good hands with Tim. I think that all the actors did.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
You mean actors? There are quite a few. There is an old saying: "Old actors don't retire; their parts just get smaller."More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
You have actors who begin at a certain young age and there's very little change in their technique and the depth of their performances; they're the same 30 years later.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
Well, actors get very frustrated with giving control to other people. They have their own ideas and wants for their characters. Warren Beatty once told me that he thought actors ended up directing out of frustration. If you have a strong sense of how to communicate a film, you should direct. The problem is that it is a huge commitment. I'd rather direct a play than a film due to the time. A movie can tie you up for a year or more.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
There's a whole army of people looking after you to make sure that you're not in any kind of danger. I mean, even when you're up swinging off a wire, there's people there checking everything. Everything is double checked and triple checked before you go anywhere near it. I'm not one of those actors who gets any pleasure out of doing their own stunts.More [04/07/2006 12:04:00]
Soap Actors are fun and interesting. They all have something special that you want to be around.More [04/10/2006 12:04:00]
Several of the actors I've had the good fortune of working with stand out in my mind as 'ultimate'. I guess the obvious would be Tom Hanks, because he really is as fun and as genuine as he comes across in his films and interviews.More [04/10/2006 12:04:00]
Of course, silence in the theater, when you know that that silence is being sustained before your eyes by a group of actors on stage can be equally thrilling. I think we undervalue silence as a very powerful currency. I think we're frightened of it right now. We fill it at the least provocation.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
[Hopper digs his] E-Ring ... one of the best young actors around. So giving, so positive. He's the real deal.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I don't think that there is any longer a dark shadow cast over actors who work in television, so I would readily go back.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I'd love to see the rushes but it's just not allowed because directors and also a lot of actors feel that if they see their work, and the director likes what they're doing, the actor might try to correct their mistakes.More [04/24/2006 12:04:00]
Most of the actors in the film have Down syndrome, ... Originally this was going to be a short film to promote to corporate entities that it's a viable idea to work with a cast with Down syndrome.More [04/24/2006 12:04:00]
We are older now, ... so it is good for us to feel like we're not just child actors any more. We've grown up and are now able to make our own acting decisions.More [04/25/2006 12:04:00]
Paul and I were both struggling actors. One night he would serve me in a restaurant, and the next night I would serve him. It was what out of work actors did.More [04/28/2006 12:04:00]
he taboo for straight actors playing gay is gone... My mother was squirming a bit in the theater because she comes from a different generation.More [05/01/2006 12:05:00]

It is all about marketing; that is where the real craft comes in. The best actors do not necessarily become the biggest stars. And vice versa.More [05/03/2006 12:05:00]
Generally speaking, actors are allowed NO input. Actors are dumb.More [05/03/2006 12:05:00]
A lot of actors had reservations about the material and about Paul - not his personality or talent, but, with a first- time filmmaker, there was not a lot of margin for error. But I trusted his vision.More [05/04/2006 12:05:00]
Some people are kind of themselves, and some people are straight-up actors that can meld into a lot of different parts.More [05/06/2006 12:05:00]

I am terribly conscious of the fact that the world doesn't need any more actors. There are so many brilliant actors around that one more twit like me joining the back of the queue seems completely unnecessary.More [05/11/2006 12:05:00]
For me, it was hard in a different way than with Heath. Because I think Heath was kind of constantly being pushed back by Ang, pushed back into his skin, and he wanted to come out. I had heard all these stories from actors who had warned me that after the first day of work, Ang said, 'You'll get better.' So I was waiting for that. And the first day of work he walked out to me and said, 'Great job.' And I was like, 'Uh-oh, that's not good.More [05/15/2006 12:05:00]
I doubt that means actors are going to be stampeding to play gay cowboys or even gay roles. But they'll be looking for material as honest and powerful as this film offers.More [05/15/2006 12:05:00]
These are the nicest people. From the producers and writers on down. The actors are just wonderful. ...They take care of the old man.More [05/16/2006 12:05:00]
[O'Connor took a different tact, embracing his young charges.] What's interesting is that these guys became actors in the best sense of the word, ... They were absolutely committed to each scene. The players didn't have to act -- they discovered that they just had to be themselves.More [05/22/2006 12:05:00]

I include Jimmy Caan with those other actors out of respect, not because of his process, but because I think he's an amazing actor.More [06/15/2006 12:06:00]
Oliver Stone's great. He shoots fast, which is great for actors but very hard on the crew, especially in 110-degree heat.More [06/20/2006 12:06:00]
I've always just adored music. It's my first love, really. I admire and respect people in the music business. You really have to work hard and diligently. Sometimes actors can be lazy and get away with it, but you can't do that if you're a musician.More [06/24/2006 12:06:00]
