"Many film actors, though, who are purely film actors, they’re kind of like celebrity chefs, you know what I mean? You hand them the ingredients, and they whip it up, and they cook it, and they put it on a plate, and they want a round of applause. In the theater, we don’t just cook the food and serve it." —Alec Baldwin explains that contrary to the message of his former Orphans co-star Shia LeBeouf's acting wisdom tweets, good theater comes from slow and thoughtful work, and not a kick-it-up-a-notch state of mind.
