Quote of the Day

"The reality is, if you go to the theater in New York, if someone doesn't have 'Law & Order' on their Playbill biography, they either just got off the bus or they're really bad actors."

- Dick Wolf, creator/producer of said "Law & Order."

See Barbara Hoffman's humorous story in the Post about at least one successful actor who's not embarassed to include in his playbill bio: "has not appeared in Law & Order." But not for lack of trying...

A few weeks ago on Saturday Night Live (first time I'd watched it in years), Jake Gyllenhaal was in a lovely sketch about an acting class geared exclusively toward roles in the various Law & Orders. I had hoped to find it on YouTube, but no luck
