  • "I loved being with Burton on the set. We love hanging out. I love to watch where he’s going, what he’s trying, all the different things he does."
  • "Talking about Batman Returns, he’s got me in this armadillo suit and I’m in a place that’s so freezing — the stage was so cold — I was the only one comfortable. Everyone’s walking around in scarves and hats … I’m in pounds of latex or whatever the hell it was. I had a great time with him."
  • "I've watched the show [Gotham]. I think he's [Rob Lord Taylor] a very good young Penguin. He's a terrific actor."
  • "I don't know about that [future appearances in the show]. Again, it's all about the schedules and the parts and like how the thing is written and what it would be and there are so many particulars."
