Bonus Trivia

.

Fox on acting with silences: "I think that's the whole idea of listening. I've seen that with other actors-the moment where it could be an actor's most brilliant moment, where the actor says nothing. There are also times when it's great to have this five-page dialogue, like Mamet. Our shows are great because most of the time we're talking about the science." - quoted in Venice magazine, April 2001
