Anthony Hopkins was fantastic at channeling Hitchcock - he would stay in character on set and walk up behind people and say "good evening" and freak them out. He loved to joke around on set.
While attending the prestigious graduate screenwriting program at UCLA, he wrote a small Hollywood studio film,'The Big Tease,' with Scottish comedian 'Craig Ferguson'. Although the film was not very successful, it led to working with various A-List movie studios, producers, and stars. However, as of 2005, only a couple of his screenplays have been produced and he never graduated from UCLA.
