I live in a small town in Connecticut, and they don't write scripts there, but I get them anyway because my agent is in Los Angeles.
What good is a character who's always winking at the audience to let them in on the secret?
I'm stopped by mothers who say, 'Mr. Wilder, what advice would you give to my young boy? He's really talented.'
I want to do what I can lend my talents to, but I want it to be as a human being and not as a two-dimensional character.
I'd like to do a comedy with Emma Thompson. I admire her as an actress so much. I love her. And I didn't know it until recently that her whole career started in comedy.
So my idea of neurotic is spending too much time trying to correct a wrong. When I feel that I'm doing that, then I snap out of it.
