ACTOR: "I can tell you don't act for a living because that's not really how it works. Each actor in the piece studies the part and if they're all good at what they do it comes together. If they stray, the director straightens them out. That's his job. "
EDDIE: "But surely the dialogue requires word music and that needs a coordinator, at least an informal one."
ACTOR: "Naw. The kind of people who become actors have an ear for that kind of thing. They're all lead sled dogs."
EDDIE: (apologizes for persisting in the argument, then:) "But actors are after the great moments, aren't they? The scenes that stay in the audience's minds afterward...surely with such a difficult goal in mind you don't want to leave it to chance."
EDDIE: "I'm just curious...what type of roles are you most comfortable with? Is there anything you have a special knack for?"
That's all I remember. Fascinating! Just fascinating!
