There used to be a candy called 'Bonkers,' which I believe to be the greatest candy of all time.

Some suggestions for you :

I didn't want to make a literal film about Detroit, because it felt like what they were experiencing was more universal than that.

I don't really have that much angst to get rid of.

I've lost perspective on what I'm doing. I think it's good for me to take a break and reassess why I'm doing it and how I'm doing it. And I think this is probably a good way to learn about that. I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does.

I don't like the process of meeting someone and you make a film and that's it. You think you're just getting started, and then it's over.

The Internet is just an abstract place. Sure, I've become part of that in some way, but it's hard for me to wrap my head around a lot of it. I prefer just to kind of stay out of it.

I always wanted to do a comedy, but I wanted to pick the right one. But it came down to working with Steve Carell. I've wanted to work with him since I met him years ago as a kid.

I think that you can sort of have your own personal journey and you know, you can just kind of apply that to whatever characters you're playing.

If you do one good thing, that doesn't define you either. Being around the kids in the juvenile center, they were engaging, they made us laugh but they were there for doing something terrible.

It was a strange experience, making a love story and not getting along with your co-star in any way.

I'm from Canada, and I think, like everyone growing up anywhere else in the world, you are very aware of America - it sort of looms large in its legend, and so did Detroit.

I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does.

A car is only trouble at a certain point.

I'd like to see some Broadway shows at some point in time.

That's the power of film. If it's good, it can somehow make you feel connected to even the farthest thing from your own experience.
