Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Clancy Brown: (regarding The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension) I think it could have done well, but it got mixed up in one of those Hollywood studio game things, where they all change places. "Buckaroo Banzai" was just so strange that nobody really knew how to approach it. It really is way ahead of its time.

    • Clancy Brown: (about the premise of Carnivàle) Throughout the history of man, there has been a constant struggle between the forces of light and the forces of darkness. God and the Devil have decided to wage this war on Earth - with human proxies. Occasionally, these two avatars of light and darkness meet. And subsequently, a Dark Age or an Age of Enlightenment ensues.

    • Clancy: There's a lot of people out here that spend a lot of time in promotion, and that just seems like a big waste of time to me.

    • Clancy Brown: If it's something that reaches out and grabs me, I want to do it. I have a lot of trouble doing things that don't grab me. So, I'm not a very good actor in that way. I can't fake it.

    • Clancy (on the making of Highlander): For the scene we did in the church there could have been a wonderful dialogue - "God, this doesn't compare to the Greek Orthodox Church," or "I liked it better when they did it in Latin," or any type of thing. There's all sorts of twists that could have been done. I like the little twists like that because they make the audience think. "Highlander" still has its action and everything, but that's really all we went for here, the good guy/bad guy, cops and robbers type of thing.

    • Clancy Brown: All the movies where I play nice guys do not seem to do very well.

  • Great actor

    People know him mainly because of Mr. Krabs. But if you watch Highlander, you will realize that this guy is more than you think he is
  • He is kind of good.

    Clancy brown is good but the onlt show I like him playing is Mr. Krabs on Spongebob. There are other shows he plays but sometimes I cant tell which charater he plays because I hate the shows. He did a good job with his voice as Mr. Krabs. Most of the cast on spongebob is only good on that show. He might not be one of my favorite voice actors but at least he did a voice of a charater on one of my favorite shows, Spongebob Squarepants. Maybe in the future there will be another cool show that he will play as a charater. I wish him luck in the future.moreless
