  • 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.
