Personal Quote:

(On his short-lived job at Red Lobster) The thing about Red Lobster is that if you work there, you can't afford to eat there. You're making minimum wage. A shrimp costs minimum wage. I cleaned up after the kids. Kids don't eat. I used to zero in on a kid. 'Don't touch that scallop. Please don't touch that scallop.' See more »

Trivia:

Has the rare distinction of being in two movies that opened on the same day in the U.S.: The Longest Yard (2005) and Madagascar (2005) (May 27, 2005). Both of them stayed at the two top spots at the box office the following weeks, knocking down the last installment of the Star Wars saga, Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005). Both became members of the $100 million club. See more »
