(on Hogan's Heroes)
Klemperer: What we are all doing is parody. For an actor, my role is satisfying because it challenges me to develop new little facets of the character. Here and there I can extend his pomposity while never forgetting that he is, basically, just a scared little man. Or, again, I can extend his naivete, or go further with what he believes is cunning. If he were a total idiot, the whole show would fall like a house of cards.
