Top 10 Best Danny Strong Quotes

I love the idea of a movie hero in a thriller who is able to get ahead by just his brilliance, and not with a gun or by being an action hero.

I spent so many years of my life as a stage actor and when you do all these plays, a lot of really great plays are very politically driven. They deal with deep social issues, and that’s the kind of stuff that I love, as an audience member.

It seems to me that our presidential elections have turned more into a popularity contest than a real analysis about who really should be President of the United States.

Even from a really young age I was a huge movie buff – five, six, seven, eight. Just loved movies, but in a more in-depth way than most kids that loved movies at that time. I’d find a filmmaker or something and want to see all his movies.

Screenwriting is definitely the majority of my time, but I do still act when stuff comes up. I do a few jobs a year.People ask me that all the time about written something for yourself to star in, and it’s strange. I just approach it as two separate careers.

I started writing when I was 26, so I don’t even know what year that was. I wrote a script for me to star in. A friend of mine, who was an actor that I would compete against a lot, had written a script and was taking all these meetings. He just kept pushing me and was like, “You got to do it. You’re going to love it!” He’s a very successful screenwriter now. His name is Michael Bacall and he wrote 21 Jump Street, Project X, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. So it was a few factors.

In the case of Game Change, the discussion in that film was how our politicians have become so much like celebrities – personality becomes more important than substance so that they can function in a 24-hour news cycle. So the question is, how do you feel about that? Is this what you want from a politician – somebody who’s wildly charismatic, but has so little knowledge of substantive issues?

In movies that tackle these political issues, there are far more interesting themes to be explored than partisan politics, which is what we get on cable news every second of every day.
