I’m guessing maybe some actors won’t be happy to read this.

The thing about an actor, you don’t have to train for it per se. I mean, I cannot be a musician, I cannot be an athlete, but I can be an actor because it’s just playing a human being right? And so that doesn’t … it takes training and it takes work, but not much.

(I saw it on Twitter here and I guess you can hear it tomorrow on CBS Sunday Morning.)

Maybe I’ll become an actor. I’m a human being.

I think.


  1. Hmmm. Not sure if you can be an actor if you only play yourself! ?

  2. Well, maybe not a GOOD actor? I do think some play only themselves … and not terrifically well.

    But what do I know? I don’t play myself. I play oboe. 😉
