Personal Quote:

[on directing "Date Night"] We wanted the awkwardness of Steve and Tina having to make up an erotic dance on the spot. I was standing behind the camera screaming at them "Sex robots!..Intercourse caterpillar!..Lick the pole!" I call it my little creative menage a trois. They were doing the dancing but I was in the scene with them, breaking out suggestive moves. See more »
