  • Quotes

    • Nathan: People in New York are very specific about their things. One of the traits of being a New Yorker is that you have to believe you're the biggest and the best. That means bagels, that means everything.

    • Nathan: America is fickle, and if the audience doesn't get it, regardless of how good the show is, we're gone in two weeks. Is that necessarily going to happen? Probably not. But is there a chance it'll happen? Absolutely.

    • Nathan: I guess people are confused, they don't think I'm a theater kind of actor and they don't know that I have very little comedy experience.

    • Nathan: (about going to the beach) It's like the lobby of a casino. The dregs of society. Screaming kids, and it's packed, hot, and everyone's sweaty. I enjoy, like, sunsets and looking at the ocean, but I don't like parking, walking, humanity—ugh, awful. And the preparation!

    • Nathan: Our parents' notion of how Hollywood works must be so skewed.

    • Nathan: (on studying at Colby-Sawyer) I performed in a lot of great roles, as well as produced and directed productions and started an improv group. Other kids have Yale theater degrees, but I have more experience because I had so many more opportunities.

    • Nathan: (on why he thinks "Studio 60" was canceled) I think it was just money, the huge amount of money that it cost to create it and then run it. They needed it to be a huge hit to make money. The set was expensive, and it was expensive to pay all those people.

    • Nathan: All the opportunities I had at Colby-Sawyer showed me there was nothing stopping me. Everything was within my grasp. Everything was possible.

    • Nathan: Television is an editor's medium, not an actor's medium. There's often no rehearsal, and everything is fast, fast, fast. Then the editors cut and splice your performance.

    • Nathan: (on his character Tom Jeter in "Studio 60") He's fast, great wit, really smart man, and he knows how to craft a joke while you're walking down a hallway.

    • Nathan: I come from a very funny family. That's how you cut your teeth, at the dinner table. We would just tear people apart.

    • Nathan: (in preparing for his role in Studio 60) I've been watching West Wing and Sports Night episodes nonstop since I got the audition. It makes you want to walk down hallways really fast.

    • Nathan: I have a fantasy of coming up with an animated show. I have a lot of friends who do post-production animation and after-effects for Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. So I have this fantasy of doing a half hour for Cartoon Network or something.

    • Nathan: The only reason I'm here in New York is because I didn't want to be by myself doing the red carpet. Doing it together we're like a tag team.

    • Nathan: There are people who, when they're around a group of other talented people who are funny and smart, they just explode. They really open up and are themselves, truly.

    • Nathan: Live theater is a much more powerful medium for actors. You are always in control of your performance.

    • Nathan: My agent is really pushing me hard toward television, because that's where the money is, but live theater is what I love.

    • Nathan: Isn't "romance expert" just a fancy way of saying slut?

  • Talented, charming, wonderful.

    I absolutely love Nathan Cordry. The character of Tom Jeter on Studio 60 is amusing and makes the show worthwhile. Nathan is extemely talented, funny, and charming. His appearance on the Daily Show as a correspondent was delightful and he continues to amaze me. I think his character on Studio 60 will be a great jumping off point for his career. I even enjoyed his guest spot on Law and Order: Criminal Intent. I honestly hope he gets more extensive roles in the future because I would love to see what he can really do.

  • Nate has definitely established himself as much more than just "the bald guy's little brother."

    Nate Corddry's first piece about the battleship Iowa was hilarious, and the rest have been just as great, if not better. He has managed to establish a likeable, if not just a bit disturbed, character that plays great with the show, and all the pieces he does. It's somewhat dissapointing that he has "pulled a Carell" so soon, (He will be leaving The Daily Show to be a part of the new Aaron Sorkin series Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip) but that, too is a testament to his comedic talent and potential. Nate has definitely established himself as much more than just "the bald guy's little brother."moreless
