Funny actors

Ken Levine talks about funny actors. My rule of thumb: it's satisfactory if an actor reads it so it sounds as funny as it did in your head. You pray for an actor who reads it funnier.

The ability to get more out of a script than was put into it is a great mystery to me, and the actor who has it -- well, as Greg Daniels said about Jenna Fischer, it's like a magic trick.
