- Colman Domingo

Other Very

My only qualifications to be an actor were that I'm daring, and I'm a quick learner. I've always learnt by watching what other people do. It's the same with my writing. I write what I know. Structurally, I write in a very undisciplined way.

Doing Controls

If you're doing a large, complicated character with radio controls, it might take a number of people several months to make it and if you're talking about a quick little hand puppet, it could be made in 2 days, so there's enormous range there, and no real easy generalities.

If you're looking for a quick hit, that means you're looking for something disposable.

- Jodi Kantor

Sometimes Umpires

Umpires sometimes have a quick trigger.

- Johann Kaspar Lavater

I Think Nepotism

I think, so often, people go quick to that nepotism: 'I should be OK; my cousin's a producer. I can get into the movie.' How about audition, earn the part, and feel confident in knowing that the director felt you were the right person for the job versus hiring you because you know somebody?

- Jovan Adepo

Define Easiest

People are real quick to jump at the easiest way to define you.

- Judge Reinhold
