  • “It weighs a ton; it smells awful,” he said.
  • He said it helped get him into character, but that was the extent of any joy in it.
  • “I think they added weight to it every year just because a) the costume designer, Michele [Clapton], hates actors, obviously,” he said. “And I think they just wanted to physically tire us out by the end so we never, ever wanted to do the show again.”
