Tom Verica quotes

Right before 'American Dreams,' I started to pursue these avenues, like short films and getting into a couple night courses to really study photography and cinematography, and the language of visual storytelling.

Having spent a lot of time on sets, I was really interested in the overall storytelling aspect of shows and projects.

I am definitely most proud of 'American Dreams.'

I can put on my resume: 'Can play dead.'

I guess that is a good compliment for an actor for people to hate you wherever you go.

I played in 'From the Earth to the Moon,' working with Tom Hanks. He is a great guy, very smart.

I started my career as an actor, but I've been a director for 15 years now.

If we had a perfect world, we can do 'Scandal' during the day and 'Murder' at night - that's the optimal thing.

Most of my work had been in theater, and I was jumping not just into television but 'L.A. Law,' which had all these megastars in it.

Most shows are normally 40 or 50 pages.

My family is very close. I can't say that about many people I meet in Hollywood.

There are days when I am just dead on the floor, and I'm there in my makeup, and that's getting a little tiring.

Audiences have become so much more sophisticated, and they're looking for different eyes and different ways to tell a story. And 'Scandal' certainly gives us the freedom to take those chances.

I remember seeing this picture my mother had of Dick Clark. It didn't inspire me to be an actor or anything, but when I did 'American Dreams' with Dick Clark, my mother came out, and she showed him this picture of them that was taken 35 years earlier. It was great.

Myself, I happen to be married to an African-American woman, and we're together 17 years. We took a few trips to the South 15 years ago, and we were sobered by some of the reactions people had - how subtle or not-so-subtle their reactions were.

Be the change that you wish to see in the world. Mahatma Gandhi

You have to enjoy life. Always be surrounded by people that you like, people who have a nice conversation. There are so many positive things to think about. Sophia Loren

Most people have a blank slate and can start from nothing. But for me, I had to break a bad habit that I've been doing all of my life, which is freestyle hip-hop. Roshon Fegan
