Christopher Meloni: (on Kathy Bates directing for 'Oz')
With Oz there's a kind of structure to (telling the stories), and you've got to get it done. And it's driven more emotionally than with wacky camera shots and that stuff. So, when you have an actor directing, they understand how to tell a story emotionally. So there's an instant rapport and an instant communication between the actor who's acting and the actor who's directing. And Kathy Bates - what a ballsy, beautiful, forthright, smart woman. I fell in love with her, Jesus Christ. She directed the episode where I first grabbed Beecher's cock. As an actor that was the first time I'd ever grabbed another guy's cock!
