(on working on The War at Home and A Night At The Museum)
Rami Malek: To work with [Michael] Rapaport, who is a wonderful man, very giving, and to have a very similar experience with Ben Stiller, who brings so much to the table and is a very kind man as well, is something that I think is very rare in this business, to have an opportunity like this. I'm just a happy man because of it. The whole movie, being surrounded by so many legendary comedians, such funny men, geniuses really, was very exciting. It was a once in a lifetime experience. I was really blessed.
(when asked what he could say to troubled young gay teens)
Rami Malek: To be so young and courageous in that respect is something that is very honorable. I hope that despite all the fear, that young men will see this as a way to fly against those fears and stand up for themselves in a courageous, honorable fashion. And really, for anyone who's having any type of trouble regarding parents or anything at all, to really take a bold step to go with your heart, go with your gut and see what comes out of it rather than hiding.
(on the role of Kenny for The War at Home)
Rami Malek: [Rob Lotterstein] created this character and gave him such a unique identity and humor and ability for people to fall in love with Kenny. I just try to layer on to everything that's written for me. The way Kenny can attach himself to the Gold family and go to them for advice is written, of course, but the manner that makes him lovable is something that Rob and I have created together, I hope.
