"Laurence Olivier said in an interview once that when he plays a tragedy he always aims for the funny parts, and the other way around. Because in a comedy you look for what's serious. I think that's true. Sometimes things are really funny if you're absolutely earnest. If you're really serious, it's hilarious."
"Acting is all about big hair and funny props... All the great actors knew it. Olivier knew it, Brando knew it."
