Personal Quote:

[on preparing to play President Roosevelt] This great director we had at 'Second City' [Del Close] said, 'You wear your character like a trench coat. It's still you in there, but there's,like, a trench coat'. So I figured this was like a winter trench coat, because there was just a little bit more character that comes to the party. So I did a lot more reading, a lot more studying. See more »
