Quotes

#Quote
1[on Eugene Levy] He's wonderful. A great friend.
2[on Wired (1989)] I have no desire to see that. I don't see the need. I didn't see the need for the book. I don't see the need for the movie. Let it alone. Why? Why do we have to drag that out? Its such dirty laundry.
3I should have been in Ghostbusters (1984).
4I've been taking shots at Tri-star for their non-campaign of Who's Harry Crumb? (1989). I mean, good God, there's a team for ya. They sunk the picture and all got promotions for it.
5[on Uncle Buck (1989)] In the movie, Uncle Buck doesn't talk down to these kids. And I think that's why they like him. He treats them as an equal.
6[on Who's Harry Crumb? (1989)] It offered me a lot of different characters to play and it was a lot of fun.
7[on Ghostbusters (1984)] Harold [Ramis] had called and things just didn't go well with the negotiations on it. We didn't see eye to eye on certain things and the rest is history. But Rick [Moranis] did a great job with it.
8I think I may have become an actor to hide from myself. You can escape into a character.
