  • Quotes

    • Hill: (On working with James Roday) We have the chemistry off-camera. I think eventually, I personally think it wouldn't work. We both like to have a lot of fun, and I think that translates to the screen. We're all thankful to have a job.

    • Hill: (On his dancing career) I do eventually want to get back into performing, but right now it's more fun for me to dance for myself.

    • Dulé: (on an unusual fan encounter) I was doing Bring in Da' Noise, Bring In Da' Funk here in New York and I came out and was all sweaty and I had my towel and this lady was like, 'Oh! Can I have your towel, can I have your towel?' I gave it to her and she ran down the road screaming. And I was just like wow - it was a nasty, sweaty towel.

    I think I loved Dule every since he was on

    The West Wing and he is very talented but also

    Very underused on the show. Here in the tv show Pysch

    He is now getting mor exposure playing the sidekick and straight man and he is good at it. Here's hoping that he will be more recognized now on this show!
