I think I may have become an actor to hide from myself. You can escape into a character.

[on Ghostbusters (1984)] Harold [Ramis] had called and things just didn’t go well with the negotiations on it. We didn’t see eye to eye on certain things and the rest is history. But Rick [Moranis] did a great job with it.

[on Who’s Harry Crumb? (1989)] It offered me a lot of different characters to play and it was a lot of fun.
