  • Quotes

    • Jeremy: (on his show "Living the Dream") It was exhilarating to only have basic storylines and you have to improvise it as you go along. There were no rehearsals or anything; just a meeting every day to block out basic storylines and then they just trusted us to run with it.

    • Jeremy: (on playing "Billy the gay guy" on the faux reality show "Living the Dream") Billy is extremely different from me. Billy dresses differently, walks differently, talks differently, and is much softer and feminine than me. It was exhausting. Even things like answering a knock at the door & I had to answer in Billy's voice and never my own to stay in character.
