"I think of [Lucille] as... a basically good person who just has the wrong values." -Jessica Walter on her character Lucille Bluth

"'Our job as writers is to write these characters as despicable as possible. And your job as actors is to make them as likeable as possible.'" -Jason Bateman quoting creator Mitch Hurwitz

"Here I am at 'Inside the Actors Studio' and yet today, I went on a meeting... in which it was impressed upon me that I would probably have to read." -Jeffrey Tambor on continuing to hustle in his acting career
