Personal Quote:

I grew up watching sci-fi and monster movies like I Was a Teenage Werewolf (1957) and all those creepy old Vincent Price horror movies. They made a huge impression on me and I think that's what Independence Day (1996) is going to do for a whole generation of youngsters. It's going to be their favorite nightmare. See more »

In a jazz band called "The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra" with actor Peter Weller, they perform at local clubs in Los Angeles. They were also in a band together in the movie The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (1984). See more »
