Personal Quote:

[on hosting the Academy Awards] Whatever your approach, the world is a rough room. And it's a big room. Not everybody is going to like what you have to say. But when you're up there, look like you want to be there. You're the captain of show business that night. That's your job. See more »


Considered for the role of Wilbur Turnblad in Hairspray (2007), which went to Christopher Walken. See more »


His act often has imitations of people from the 1930s-40s
