The function of the press in society is to inform, but its role in society is to make money.
The wealth of information now available at the click of a finger amazes me.
Clark Gable seemed fascinating all his life because there wasn't so much information about him. Today, you're on television all the time.
I got as much information as I could, so I wouldn't look stupid, but this is a post 9/11 world and there's only so much you can do with the FBI in terms of research.
All of a sudden, if you think about the entire ecosystem of connected devices that can pull down information, access content and allow me to share and work and communicate, the vast majority now are not Windows computers. They are iPhones. They are iPads. They are Android devices.
The gospel music and doo-wop is what has informed me personally.
Information is power. But like all power, there are those who want to keep it for themselves.
Writing an encyclopedia is hard. To do anywhere near a decent job, you have to know a great deal of information about an incredibly wide variety of subjects. Writing so much text is difficult, but doing all the background research seems impossible.
I was born in Mumbai, but I grew up in England, and then my adulthood has been in the States. I'm an American stuffed with an English person with an Indian person inside. I feel like those things kind of inform me in some way, which I think helps me as an actor.
If you pick up that information, the first metre or two, the ball coming out of the hand, you can analyse what's coming.
