Other than the laws of physics, rules have never really worked out for me.
We worked very hard to make extensions very simple.
The similarity between the big directors I’ve worked with is that they allow the writer to find a way of doing what they want done without saying ‘do it this way.’ They describe what they want, then letting the writer figure out a way to do it.
I have worked hard to build relationships between Jewish people and black people.
It would be a foolish high representative who worked that way.
I worked at Starbucks when I was 16… It was all right.
Since I was very young I have always worked hard at whatever I have had to do.
I’ve spent over half my life at NBC. This is the only place I have ever worked.

I worked at Mark Foy’s during the day and studied drama at night.
I never wanted to feel I hadn’t worked hard enough.
‘Vanity Fair’ did this grid thing a couple years ago, connecting people who’ve worked together, and I had the most branches on it or whatever, because I’d worked with so-and-so and so-and-so worked with so-and-so, and I was kind of in the middle.

Atlantic’s Jerry Wexler believes first-rate records are made by first-rate voices. He certainly has worked with enough of them: Clyde McPhatter, Joe Turner, La Vern Baker, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Solomon Burke, Wilson Pickett and Aretha Franklin.
I’ve composed a fair amount in my life, and some of them have made it on to the screen, some compositions that I’ve done, a few. And I like doing that. I had never really considered doing a full-length thing. I’ve worked with other people creating full-length pieces.
