Actor (September 16, 1927 - June 23, 2011)
He sent the script over and I read it that first night, and about page 45 or 50, I called him up and said I'd do it. I didn't even finish it. You look for a part that you can score in. If I like this character and I can play it, the people are going to laugh or be interested, that's what you look for. They send me things that I wonder why they would send to anybody.
It wasn't that we improvised it. We were going to shoot it, but I had the props in my hand, and I wanted to understand the props before we shot, so I asked Paul 'Is this the hook?' and 'Where do you put the worm?' that's when the director just said 'Shoot these guys!' I didn't even know the camera was on, but it felt good!
