I guess because it is Opening Night of Holmes & Watson at Full Circle, I am thinking about acting today. Here are Nicolas Cage, Colin Firth, Stanley Tucci, Morgan Freeman, Peter Sarsgaard and Christoph Waltz in a roundtable discussion from THR.com:
My feeling: Acting is art as long as the actor perceives him-or-herself as an artist.
“I consider my entire movie career a complete failure. The goal of movie-making is to star in a film where your performance drives the film, and the film is either a soaring critical or commercial success, and I never had that.
“And now, the movies I’ve been in, I never give them a moment’s thought. Every movie I’ve ever been in, I just avoid.”
– Alec Baldwin
…and apparently he’s planning on going into politics.
