Throughout history in the theater and film people do like sarcastic characters, and they do like curmudgeons - if they're amusing, they do like them despite the fact that they're vitriolic, particularly if they're for the right thing.

I think if you have a comic perspective, almost anything that happens you tend to put through a comic filter.

The film studios learned to our dismay but to their pleasure that if they spent $200 million making a film they could make half a billion on it.

It's a wonderful thing to be able to create your own world whenever you want to. Writing is very pleasurable, very seductive, and very therapeutic. Time passes very fast when I'm writing-really fast.
