With Jim Carrey playing George Jetson and Nicole Kidman playing Jane Jetson. 6 Father of Chloe Sonnenfeld. 7 Nephew of Vaudeville and screen comedian Gus Schilling, whose voice likeness he inherited genetically. 8 One of his most embarrassing moments occurred when he was a teenager attending his first rock concert.

# Quote 1 [on directing Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones] Although Will would always be deferential and charming he's an eight-month-old Great Dane puppy, and he's got way too much energy, way too much joy, too much karmic perfection. And I think that may have affected Tommy. But from the entire first movie [they] loved each other. Will genuinely feels Tommy's one of the funniest people he's ever met because Tommy is George Burns and Will is Gracie Allen. You need both. 2 [on what he took away from each "Men in Black" film] - The first one was unique because it was the first one in the series and we got to create this world. What we realized in the second movie is that we thought the first movie was a comedy, and we realized that it was funny, but not a comedy. And the second one was too, "funny" or "joke-y," and we were trying for comic-beats as apposed to telling a great story. And the third Men in Black, we went back to the roots and it's much more like the first Men in Black, which is that it's really about emotion, character, and relationships. And if it's funny, it's funny because of those things, but we're not cutting to singing dogs. 3 A director sits on the set 11 and a half hours a day. And for 30 minutes they get to direct. 4 About Men in Black (1997): "It's basically a remake of The French Connection (1971) with aliens as a comedy."
