Personal Quote:

[on Bill Cosby's sexual assault allegations] While I certainly don't condone what Bill has been accused of, I feel those universities were vindictive in taking back his honorary doctorate; I believe, despite everything, he's actually earned that - if not before, then definitely since. Personally, I would have ordered him to do a remake of Leonard Part 6 (1987) and then called it even.

Trivia:

Despite Bill Cosby's accusations of his sexual assault allegations, he said in an interview he'll no longer defend his acting mentor. See more »
