Personal Quotes

When I was young and crazy, I was young and crazy. It can be hard enough just to BE in your teens and 20s. Then add fame, money, access, and every single person telling you that you’re the greatest person who ever was, and it can be a recipe for disaster. Some people literally don’t survive it.

[on his short-lived sitcom, "A New Kind of Family" (1979)] It was notable only for how bad it was.

… One of the great gifts we get (as actors) is that we live on, frozen in time, forever… Truly, the most fulfilling moments I’ve ever had are on the stage. If you can’t have that as an actor, then you might as well at least have that other great thing, which is immortality.
