(Talking about the play "Talk Radio")
Peter Hermann: I think the piece has been described as 'this quilt of insanity' about the late 1980s. It allows us to look at how the country talked about itself and to examine what has changed in this country since then.
Peter: (regarding wife Mariska Hargitay's win for a 2005 Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama Series) I cannot believe she's as articulate as she is, because I cannot speak, I'm so happy and so proud. I am totally blown away and so proud.
(Regarding his role on "Talk Radio")
It's interesting because I've been in front of cameras where I know it's going to be broadcast, but somehow the thought of talking and being heard by people - somehow there was something really frightening to me about [doing publicity work on radio]; to only have people hear my voice, it's a totally different dynamic.
Peter Hermann: We just sat at home. I was making Christmas cards, Mariska was on the treadmill, and we were watching "The Black Stallion". It was incredibly romantic--hey we're newlyweds.
Peter Hermann: I think the books talk among themselves when they're alone at night. They've gotten to know one another by now and it's a great place to be. (Talking about his favorite room in his house, the library)
Peter Hermann: It's so incredible to see aspects of Mariska that simply weren't there before because there was nothing to call them to existence. It's like a whole new person emerged after two years of marriage. (talking about wife Mariska Hargitay after son August was born)
