Quotes

#Quote
1I passed up a lot of work 'cause a lot of movies that may be out there right now I passed em up because there may have been a lot of cussin' in 'em.
2Every movie I do, or when I'm on the sketch comedy show, I don't really get into it until I have an outfit or something funny with my head or face or something.
3Invisible Boy was fun. Everybody else's character, they knew where they were at already as a superhero. But invisible boy's character, you kind of grow up with him within the movie.
4I loved Spider-Man, Spider-Man was the man.
5Being a role model, you just got to watch what you do.
6Where I'm from, they'll beat your head until it gets back down to normal size.
7You could do a scene that takes 15 hours, but in the movie, it's only 10 minutes. The scene where they put the sauce poisoning in; it took eight hours.
8We didn't know anything about comedy duos - Abbot and Costello, Martin and Lewis - we didn't know anything about that. Kim Fields showed us a tape of Martin and Lewis and their old shows and they come through the curtain so we started doing research on them.
