  • Quotes

    • Keith Carradine: (About playing the bad guy n Coyote Waits) It was great fun. I've got this huge mustache going anyway, because I'm playing Wild Bill Hickok on an HBO series right now. So I had to grow my own mustache for that. And it served. It worked for this character of McGiniss.

    • Keith Carradine: (About Dexter and his role on the show) It's the best kind of show to step into. If you're invited to join a show for a season and it could be a hit show, yeah, it's great. [My character] pretty much interact with all the regulars on the show but I seem to be forming a partnership with Dexter's sister and there seems to be a blossoming romance.

    • Keith Carradine: (On his role as Wild Bill Hickok) It's a challenging role in that the guy has taken on such a mythic proportion over the years. When Gary Cooper played the part, he didn't have long hair, he didn't have the mustache. It was more of a Hollywood take on who the guy was. Jeff Bridges was the first one to actually play Hickok with any degree of historical accuracy. I've been given an opportunity to carry on in that light.

    • Keith Carradine: (on awards) They don't mean anything to me. Until I win one.
