  • Quotes

    • Doug:Kidnapped was a blast. We shot in NYC. I was involved in the pilot through episode six. NBC pulled the plug after ep five, I think. Too bad the show was cancelled. I think it was quite good. Hopefully, the series will be out on DVD sometime in 2007, so people will be able to enjoy it

    • Doug: Type-casting has never been a concern of mine. I take comfort in actors like Gary Oldman, Billy Bob Thornton, James Gandolfini, James Woods, Vincent D'Onofrio, and James Spader, etc. -- all who forged careers playing villains at first before becoming their own unconventional leading men.

    • Doug: Both The X-Files and Millenium flirted with the unknown. I think we're fascinated with that: the unknown. It's like God or religion; an act of faith and intrigue. On a less metaphysical level, both The X-Files and MilleniumT were forerunners in filmic TV. They broke ground in style: gritty, dark, and feature-esque.

    • Doug: I remember when I was a kid, I would run somewhat loudly into the living room in the afternoon and Grandma would be like, 'Shhh, Dougie, my story is on,' and it would be The Guiding Light on in the background. With Granny it never mattered in the duration of my career that I did a movie with Tom Hanks, that I acted with Val Kilmer, Sean Penn. It didn't matter. She didn't care. 'Dougie, when are you going to be on my story?' So I imagine now Granny is up in heaven dancing with Jesus and watching The Guiding Light on the celestial network with all the saints and angels. She is probably ecstatic that her grandson finally made it in her eyes.

    • Doug Hutchison Quote (on if he considered himself a character actor): In my opinion, all actors are 'character actors' because we all play characters.

    • Doug :Remembering Darren McGavin:
      I used to watch The Night Stalker every week when I was a kid. Kudos to Darren McGavin for scaring the piss out of me and forcing me to pull the sheets up over my head at bedtime!
