Personal Quote:

[observation, 2013] The thing that I try to avoid is anything that is long-term - a long run of something, a long tour of something, involvement in a sitcom that requires me showing up every week. I'm 62 now. I've been doing this for forty years, and what's appealing to me is making it very eclectic. It keeps me more interested than just doing one thing. See more »
