Personal Quotes (2)

One of my first jobs as a voice actor was a tire commercial, I remember because it was really cheesy. One tire was talking to the other tire and said ' how are you feeling' and my tire said 'A little flat'
[on Robin Williams] Although working with him changed my life, in truth, he impacted me several years before when Dead Poets Society (1989) became one of my favorite films and really got me interested in poetry; I later became a poet. I was lucky to work with him as an actor and witness first hand the magic of what made him a legend -- the wit and other worldly improv skills -- as well as see him single handedly put the morale of a movie set, easily hundreds of people, on his shoulders and kept everyone laughing as they worked long hours for what seemed like months on end. And at the same time, I was fortunate to spend private times, many mornings in the makeup chair (my tri-hawk hair took hours) just talking about poetry... soft spoken and introspectively, we would discuss Walt Whitman and Charles Bukowski. With Hook (1991) and so many other films, I, like millions of others, became a fan and was always delightfully surprised by the performances he managed to produce. With his passing, I can't help to feel, along with my generation... I can't help feeling like it's the death of my childhood. I guess we can't stay in Neverland forever, we must all grow up.
