Humor is a family trait. I always loved getting on panels where they ask how do you do your research? The other writers say things like, 'Well, I work for NASA, and all I do is read scientific journals,' or 'I strap on chain mail and read tracts about William the Conqueror.' I watch Tiny Toons and the Marx Brothers, and Hope and Crosby road movies.
I'm usually catching up on things I should have been doing while I was filming - a pile of mail and bills. I like reading. I like watching a lot of sports on TV - football, boxing. I like cricket a lot. I try to get down to Lords to watch Yorkshire if they're playing down there.
