About Increasingly

On buses and trains, I always think about the inexhaustible variety of human genes. We see types, and occasionally twins, but never doubles. All faces are unique, and this is exhilarating, despite the increasingly plastic similarity of TV stars and actors.

- A. S. Byatt

News Take

TV news is what you want it to be, and if you want it to be different, take a look at what you watch.

- Aaron Brown

I Wish Wish

Ugh - I wish I could just sit back and watch TV sometimes.

- Aaron Lazar

Like Telling

I might see something on TV and get inspired to write about it. I can't sit down and plan to write. It has to come to me in my head like someone telling me the words.

- Aaron Neville

Think I Think

I think socializing on the Internet is to socializing what reality TV is to reality.

- Aaron Sorkin

Like Trump

If the characters on 'The West Wing' were watching a TV show wherein a character like Trump was leading in the polls, they wouldn't find it believable.

- Aaron Sorkin

Young TV Show

When I create a TV show, it's so that I can write it. I'm not an empire builder; my writing staff is usually a combination of two kinds of people - experts in the world the show is set in, and young writers who will not be unhappy if they're not writing scripts.

- Aaron Sorkin

Love Very

I don't remember a drama on TV that had shown a couple could be married but still love each other very much, spend every day as if they were still on their honeymoon, be sensuous, and have fun together.

- Aaron Spelling

Needs Goes

Sometimes they keep us in the dark, but it's TV, so sometimes they keep us in the dark because even they don't know yet. You know what I mean? So, it sort of develops as it goes along and according to various needs that arise.

- Aaron Stanford

Doing Crossover

It used to be that you kind of got pigeonholed into one thing - you're either a stage actor or a TV actor or a movie actor. Today, there's a lot of crossover with film actors doing television, which never happened before, so those lines are a little bit more blurred than they used to be.

- Aaron Tveit

Broadway Been

I worked with Ismail Merchant on 'The Mystic Masseur,' I did 'Sakina's Restaurant,' I've done plays, I've been on Broadway, I've done movies, I've done TV... but nothing has had the pop culture penetrative impact as 'The Daily Show' has. It's the nature of the beast.

- Aasif Mandvi

People Modelling

People see my modelling and see me getting papped all the time and don't really get to see me because I don't do much TV or whatever.

- Abbey Clancy

Movie Compact

I'd like to do more TV; TV is completely different than working in movies in a lot of ways, it's like making a really compact movie. Because you don't have as much time, especially hour long shows, they move so quickly.

- Abigail Breslin

My Life ESPN

I'll always be into sports. Sports is part of my life forever. My TV stays on ESPN all day long, I'm one of those. I don't even listen to music in the car; all I listen to is sports talk.

- Action Bronson

Before Almost

I've never really broken this down before, but, in movies, you almost have no connection to fans. And if you do TV, you're kind of connected, but they know you as the TV name not your real name. If you do radio, there's more of a bond there. And then if you do a podcast it's like you're literally inside of your fans.

- Adam Carolla

Think Enough

If Joy Behar or Sherri Shepherd was a dude, they'd be off TV. They're not funny enough for dudes. What if Roseanne Barr was a dude? Think we'd know who she was?

- Adam Carolla

Distance Some

I'm not the first to admit that raising a child in Park Slope, Brooklyn, can bear an embarrassing resemblance to the TV show 'Portlandia.' My wife and I try to have some ironic distance from the culture of organic, chemical-free parenting, but we're often participants.

- Adam Davidson

Like TV Show

If you like standup and decide that it's overtaking your life and want to hate it, watch 1,000 standup comedians who are trying to get on a TV show.

- Adam DeVine

Away However

What's so cool about movies is once you're done with the movie, you put it away and come up with a whole new different idea with different characters and a different world. But in TV, you build these characters, and you build this world, and then you're there for however long you do the show.

- Adam DeVine

Thought Originally

I originally passed on 'Girls' because I thought TV was evil.

- Adam Driver

Film Good Writing

My only close-to-game-plan is to follow good writing. If the writing is in TV or if it's in theater or in film, that's it. It doesn't really matter what the medium is.

- Adam Driver

Play Another

The first job I got was this TV job in this show called 'The Unusuals.' Then I did a play called 'Slipping,' and at the same time I was rehearsing another play at Playwrights Horizons, and that kind of snowballed into a bunch of plays.

- Adam Driver

Pretty Fairly

Memorising my lines is actually something I do fairly well. I look at it a few times and it is pretty much there. When your shooting on TV, they do it in such a way that it is pretty easy.

- Adam Lamberg

Thought I Remember

When I was kid, I remember playing 'Vogue' by Madonna over and over and over again. And ah, you know, something about the beat was really cool, and Madonna, visually, was on TV all the time and I thought she was just so beautiful.

- Adam Lambert

Hang Been

Groceries, TV shows, and shoes are a few categories Amazon has been willing to hang onto for years.

- Adam Lashinsky

Always Became

People see you on TV every day, they start knowing your name. You know, I was always just the guy from Maroon 5 until I became myself.

- Adam Levine

Happen Movie

Nothing is more enjoyable for me than when I'm watching a movie or a TV show and there's that sense that anything can happen. It is the most fun feeling in the world.

- Adam McKay

See DVD

When the movie starts playing on TV and DVD, that's when you really see what the movie is.

- Adam McKay

Thought Dancing

I was completely with the reality TV boom for a while. I really liked a lot of the reality TV, and the one that lost me was the ballroom dancing one they do, 'Dancing with the Stars.' That was the one where I watched it and I was perplexed. I thought it was really boring.

- Adam McKay

Polite Least

Every time a pundit or elected official is on any TV news program, it should be a polite formality to mention that GE has made such and such billions off the war in Iraq by selling arms or that Murdoch is a right-wing activist with a clear stake in who wins and who taxes his profits the least.

- Adam McKay

Love Watching Tv

'Portlandia' - love it. I can consume three episodes of it without even realizing I'm watching TV.

- Adam Pally

Been However

I think where it's going is toward what the music industry is like, where channels will be considered more like labels that carry the type of TV show that you like, and then you'll consume them however you can. For example, I don't really watch Showtime, but I bought 'Homeland,' and I've been watching every episode on my iPad.

- Adam Pally

Yes Here

I've done shows that aired on American TV, but none of them proved to be successful, so yes, no one here knows who I am.

- Adam Rayner

Need Given

I don't devour huge amounts of television. I'm more naturally inclined to watch movies, but given my job, I need to have an understanding of what's on TV.

- Adam Rayner

Own Slightly

British audiences tend to want to see their own lives reflected on TV, whereas American audiences are quite aspirational and enjoy high-concept shows that show them lives that are perhaps slightly more exciting than they aspire to.

- Adam Rayner

Some Supposedly

You know, when you don't go on TV and talk about how many women you sleep with, some people in Hollywood, that are supposedly 'in the know,' start whispering that you're gay. If I were gay, I wouldn't be ashamed to admit it, but I'm not.

- Adam Sandler

Turnaround No Time

With the TV stuff, we usually hand in final, finished tracks. The turnaround time is so tight that there's no time to demo anything; you just do it.

- Adam Schlesinger

Records Movie

Either I need an assignment with a strict deadline - like something for a movie or a TV show or whatever - or else I need to create a made-up deadline for myself for my own records. Otherwise, I don't write anything.

- Adam Schlesinger

Small Watches

'Parks and Rec' is definitely a mainstream show - the group that watches it on TV on Thursday night is small, but the audience that watches it on things like Hulu, Netflix, and Tivo is enormous.

- Adam Scott

Treatment Entitled

There is nothing more unpleasant than watching someone on a TV or movie set act like they are entitled to a particular kind of treatment just because they have been doing it for longer. We are all in the same boat - one job at a time.

- Adam Scott

Think I Think

Most of the time, I don't think movies of TV shows are a great idea. It's worked a few times, but usually, I think that what's on TV works on TV.

- Adam Scott

Start Rehearse

I guess I'm used to TV where we don't really rehearse. You block it out, and then you just start shooting.

- Adam Scott

I Think Been

I think that a movie of a TV show is really tricky, and I don't know if it's ever really been done well. Because it's really hard if you have a 22-minute show, especially something like 'Party Down,' where it's all contained at the party.

- Adam Scott

I Remember Putting

I remember getting out of acting school and friends of mine talking about, like, 'You know, I don't think I'm gonna do TV.' Like, people putting on these airs of being picky. And I was never a snob about it.

- Adam Scott

Reason Some

I hate it when you are watching a movie where the characters are on the news, and for some reason they shoot it with a 35mm camera or a 4K camera, and they just put it on the TV as if that's the way it would look - it always takes me out of it by putting a filter on certain things. If it's too high quality, you're never gonna buy it.

- Adam Wingard

Politics Own

I talk about any number of things on my Facebook space. Politics. Current events. The writing life. The latest tempests in a teapot centering on fandom. Daily doings from my own life. My cats, for crying out loud. Flights of humorous fantasy. Books, both those I've read and those I've written. Movies. And occasionally, TV shows.

- Adam-Troy Castro

World Kind

Being on TV is kind of the best job in the world.

- Adelaide Kane

More Movie

I don't really watch a lot of TV, to be honest. I'm more of a movie girl, or I Netflix stuff.

- Adelaide Kane

Peace Like

I can't believe I did a peace sign on TV - like Ringo Starr!

- Adele

Self-Esteem Margins

By creating so many illusory images of physical perfection, whether on store aisles or storefront ads, magazine covers or TV shows, we speak more to the profit margins of companies than the self-esteem of today's girls.

- Adora Svitak

News Mommy

I wouldn't call myself a geek, but I do sometimes teach Mommy and Daddy stuff about computers. And I do watch TV, but only informative programmes like the news and documentaries.

- Adora Svitak

I Think Other

I don't claim that our TV comedies are highbrow in anyway, but I think there's a basis to them, and that's why they're more popular than other TV comedies. There's a basis of truth in them, a gut feeling.

- Adrian Edmondson

Sometimes Bring

In TV, sometimes you get lost in the fog of the scene, and when you're working with such good actors, they can bring you into the scene.

- Adriano Giannini

Going Very

For me, as an actor, going from TV to film was interesting because TV and film are two very different things.

- Aeriel Miranda

Think I Think

I actually prefer film to TV, but I don't know why. I think there's just a different energy.

- Aeriel Miranda

Play By The Time

I've made a point of trying not to play the same part, and of moving between theatre and film and TV. The idea is that by the time you come back, you have been away for a year and people have forgotten you. If you like having time off, which I do, that's a good career strategy.

- Aidan Gillen

Play By The Time

I've made a point of trying not to play the same part and of moving between theatre and film and TV. The idea is that by the time you come back, you have been away for a year, and people have forgotten you. If you like having time off, which I do, that's a good career strategy. Or at least, it's my strategy to keep my head together.

- Aidan Gillen

More Certainly

There's certainly more work for me in TV these days.

- Aidan Quinn

Fact Screen

So-called reality TV, which dominates British channels, is destroying what made it cherishable to me and lots of others in the first place. I loved Alan Clarke, Ken Loach and Alan Bleasdale's work. In fact the first TV dramas I ever saw were 'Screen Twos' produced by David Thompson, who also produced a lot of Alan Clarke.

- Aidan Gillen

Cards Away

I've enjoyed working on the TV series that I've worked on, in particular something like 'The Wire,' where there was so much time to tell the story and develop a character. I learned from that that it's best not to lay all your cards on the table straight away.

- Aidan Gillen

Chance TV Show

I'm not an extravagant person. You don't get a chance to spend money when you're working on a TV show.

- Aidan Turner

Though Literally

I don't have a TV at my house. I literally do not. I have a television, but I don't have anything plugged into it, though. I watch DVDs.

- Aimee Teegarden

Side Note

Side note: When I dressed up like Harley Quinn on TV a long time ago, everyone was like, 'Who is that?' And now she's got an entire merchandise line.

- AJ Lee

Soup Took

I started out being a stand up and writing my own material. That took me to 'Talk Soup,' where I was writing and performing for TV.

- Aisha Tyler

Church Kid

We were poor. My mother got our clothes out of the free box at the church, you know? So much of when you're a kid is about relating about what you watch on TV. And who's got these cooler shoes, and 'Let's trade lunches.' And I was just like, 'I don't have a television. I have a rock and a piece of tofu.'

- Aisha Tyler

Makeup Other

When you see me on TV against one of the other girls, they look 10 times better than me, and I'm OK with that. I make a conscious effort not to wear that much makeup and not have my hair so perfectly groomed. That's just not me. I'm not going to be perfect.

- AJ Lee

My Life Private

I want to be known for this character on TV two nights a week, and then I want to go away and live my life in private.

- AJ Lee

Love Watching Tv

To relax, I love sitting back and turning my brain off and watching TV.

- Aja Naomi King

Think I Think

Not to say there's not good TV out there, but I think TV is better when it accurately reflects the world as it is.

- Aja Naomi King

Audience Always

TV is such a great medium in what it can do in terms of enlightening an audience. We can really inspire and teach people about other people. That's a powerful tool, and that's something that the arts has always been capable of doing.

- Aja Naomi King

Been Healthier

I've been trying to eat healthier, but sometimes it doesn't work out when you're sitting in front of the TV drinking wine, and you realize you really need ice cream to go along with it.

- Aja Naomi King

Mom Back

One time, my mom told us, 'No TV.' It was 3 P.M., and I was sneaking it in. She put her hand on the back of the TV to see if it was warm, and it was. So she pulled the cord out of the wall, opened the second-floor window, and just threw it out the window.

- Akiva Schaffer

Made South

Cartoons are the best stuff on TV. 'Wonder Showzen,' 'Aqua Teen,' 'SpongeBob,' and, of course, 'South Park' - one of the funniest shows ever made.

- Akiva Schaffer

See Films

The film-watching crowd are mainly youngsters who see fashion on TV, in Hindi films, and in magazines.

- Akkineni Nagarjuna

Boss Big

I believe there is lot of untapped potential in the television market. With shows such as 'Bigg Boss' and '24' turning out to big hits on TV, I'm interested to be in it.

- Akkineni Nagarjuna

Technology Watching Tv

Do you realize if it weren't for Edison we'd be watching TV by candlelight?

- Al Boliska

Worry Think

Most Americans don't think about antitrust law when they look at their cable bill, flip channels on TV, or worry about what their favorite website knows about them. But they should.

- Al Franken

About Blockbuster

When I first started writing for television in the seventies and eighties, the Internet didn't exist, and we didn't need to worry about foreign websites illegally distributing the latest TV shows and blockbuster movies online.

- Al Franken

Living Read

I've never seen the Osbournes, I've never seen Paris Hilton. I'd rather read than watch reality TV. I'd rather live life than watch somebody else living it.

- Al Jourgensen

Over Audience

I prefer that for my own satisfaction over radio, there's no audience. TV, there's no audience. I need the response of the audience, even if it's a silent response.

- Al Lewis

Been Some

Some of the roles that are challenging are more in theater and TV. In movies, there's a tendency to cast actors in roles that have been successful for them. It has to pay for itself.

- Al Pacino

Tell The Real World

I get bitter, angry and disbelieving and I tell my kids there a lot of idiots out there. I also want them to know that being successful is not the real world - that their parents get treated better because they're on TV.

- Al Roker

Like Movie

I've done a movie and a TV series, and someday I'd like to do a successful movie and a successful TV series. That would be nice.

- Al Yankovic

I Think Some

Like, I have had moments, which I think most people have, where you'll be watching TV, and it'll be interrupted by some tragic event, and you'll actually find yourself thinking, 'I don't want to hear about this train being derailed! What happened to 'The Flintstones?'

- Al Yankovic

Depend Production

Well, you know, News Corp is the only real media global - that has a global presence that's involved in TV production, in movies, in publishing, in newspapers, digital media, et cetera. So for a company like that to function, clearly it does not depend only on Rupert Murdoch or James Murdoch.

- Al-Waleed bin Talal

Newspaper Some

Pick up any newspaper or magazine, open the TV, and you'll be bombarded with suggestions of how to have a successful life. Some of these suggestions are deeply unhelpful to our own projects and priorities - and we should take care.

- Alain de Botton

Vision Caricature

TV is a deformed vision, an excessive caricature. A chef has to stay an artisan, not become a star.

- Alain Ducasse

New Here

I saw part of The Singing Detective on TV in New York. I said, Something is going on here.

- Alain Resnais

Compare Communicate

I don't watch that much TV, so I can't compare one show to another. When I watch television, I watch people talking to one another usually or a science show where they show me microbes, you know. Microbes actually communicate quite a bit, and so there's a lot of talking going on.

- Alan Alda

Think Human Condition

TV has taken reflection out of the human condition. People didn't use to have a ready answer for everything, whether they knew something about it or not. People think they have to have an answer for everything because the guys on TV have an answer for everything.

- Alan Arkin

Wait Career

Depending on what happens with my directing career, I don't think I'll stop writing, even if I crash and burn in movies and TV. I'll go back to plays. Even if I crash and burn there, I'll write a novel. That's the great thing about writing is that you don't have to wait for people to give you permission to do it.

- Alan Ball

I Think Good Movies

I think there's a lot of interesting stuff on TV. I feel much more optimistic about TV than I do about movies. There will always be good movies but I think, for the most part, it's always going to be a huge fight to get those movies made. TV is the best place to be as a writer, I think.

- Alan Ball

Happy Want

Happy relationships are boring. We all want them in our own life. But I don't want to watch them on TV.

- Alan Ball

Feel Like

I am a little suspicious of industry paradigms. I feel like so many movies and TV shows feel so familiar because of over-reliance on these paradigms.

- Alan Ball

Television Film And TV

The difference between film and TV is the pace. You don't have the leisure of time in television.

- Alan Ball

Career Long Career

During a long career in TV broadcasting, I spent a lot of time contributing to other people's creations.

- Alan Bradley

Tell Deal

TV and film taught me to think cinematically. Teaching others to edit, for example, provides a great deal of insight into the millions of ways in which given elements can be put together to tell a story.

- Alan Bradley

Go Very

When you're on TV, you come into people's homes. In theater and film, they go to you - to the temple of the cinema or theater. And it's very different.

- Alan Cumming

Happier TV Show

My wife says I'm much happier when I'm not a regular on a TV show.

- Alan Dale

Ed Sullivan Brought

Ed Sullivan brought me to TV first in 1952, then Garry Moore's program gave me a lot of confidence and freedom.

- Alan King
