Not knowing the lines, not having a mastery of the text is painful, because until you have it you can't play the scenes. When we're up onstage now I kind of dig it. It's fun. Though I know half the audience is going to like it for the wrong reason, half of them are not going to like it for the wrong reason. You just do the show. Hide

You've got to bring those three things to a leading man's role. In some people there's a little too much in the mix of one or the other. With Holden it was always the perfect mix. Hide

I'm not blowing my horn about it. Most people give, I think. But when I learned that "30 Rock" was going into syndication, I entered into a very lucrative agreement with Capital One, and I gave nearly every dime to charity. That's why I did the commercials. I got addicted to giving the money away. Hide

They told me right to my face that Kevin Costner was the person they wanted to play my part, and they couldn't afford him. Most of the people you worked with back then were numbingly frank in that way. Hide
