Quote of the Day

“I tend to gravitate toward conflicted characters, and a character who is exploring chaos theory and population control and the difficulties of love and family is pretty rich. I mean, I’d be absolutely hopeless playing parts like -- who’s the guy who is married to Demi Moore? I’d be hopeless in roles of his.” -- Ed Stoppard, on why he wanted to play Val, an introverted researcher of mathematical biology, in a revival of his father Tom's play "Arcadia."

I just saw him in *Arcadia* a few weeks ago in London and he was wonderful! *Arcadia* is one of my favorite Stoppard plays anyway, but wow, this guy was a joy to see in the role of Valentine ... delicious!
