#Quote
1I never missed Homeland (2011) when it was on. Or Deadwood (2004). I watch Jon Stewart a lot, too - I'm a big leftie. And a lot of news.
2I enjoy watching Piers Morgan over here. He also took to task a couple of people who needed it during the gun-control debate. Piers is OK by me.
3Rhea loves Downton Abbey (2010). The costumes are great, let's put it that way.
4I'll watch Ricky Gervais in anything he does. The guy's hilarious.
5I used to love Benny Hill because he's nuts. And Monty Python [Monty Python's Flying Circus (1969)].
6Jersey is always with me. I was one of the lucky ones. Asbury Park is just the greatest place in the world to spend your childhood.
7It's fun to be on the edge. I think you do your best work when you take chances, when you're not safe, when you're not in the middle of the road, at least for me, anyway.

#Trademark
1Short stature
2Deep raspy voice
