Look at 'Batman' - that was theater of the absurd, as is 'Family Guy.'

Some suggestions for you :

I love to do voiceover because, for me, if you know what you're doing, it's simple. No makeup, no costuming, none of the baloney. None of the egos - you don't have to deal with all that crap. I love voiceovers.

You have no idea the people I meet when I do these Comic-Cons. When I go sign autographs and say hello to people, I see everything!

The word that scares the hell out of me is 'frail.' I don't want to be frail.

I've been almost everywhere. But I've never been to the steppes of Latvia. It's something I've always wanted to do.

I'm very lucky. I do voiceovers, 'Family Guy,' on and on, and quite frankly, I'm one of the luckiest actors in the world. I was able to create a character who became iconic.

My art, like my acting, is a profound expression of poetic license.

When I got to Hollywood, there wasn't even a Boulevard. I'm that old. It was just a little dirt trail. I'm kidding.

I have no patience with dinosaurs.

Oh, it's fun to be an icon!

I have the curse of thinking funny!

Typecasting is really rampant in Hollywood, and because I played a costumed character and did it successfully, it was a real stigma.

In the late '60s, there were the the three B's: The Beatles, Batman, and Bond.

If you hang around long enough, they think you're good. It's either my tenacity or stupidity - I'm not sure which.

My paintings capture the humor, zaniness, and depth of the Batman villains as well as the Freudian motivations of Batman as an all-too-human, venerable, and funny vigilante superhero.
