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.

Some suggestions for you :

Life is full of ironies and absurdities.

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!

I've always shied away from 'Where are they now?' shows, because I've been lucky enough to keep working, and people know where I am.

You can't play Batman in a serious, square-jawed, straight-ahead way without giving the audience the sense that there's something behind that mask waiting to get out, that he's a little crazed; he's strange.

How many actors have a shot at being a part of something that became a part of pop culture? It's been very rewarding. I'm not getting the 20 million bucks for the new movies, but at least I'm getting warmth and recognition from people wherever I go.

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

When 'Family Guy' came along, it was like a gift, and it expanded my fan base.

I don't paint butter dishes, doilies, or hummingbirds in my garden. It's more raw, I suppose. But it always creates a reaction.

I used to spend hours just sitting in an old wreck of a car with a stickshift; I'd just sit there and shift.

I have become convinced that everything that is classy doesn't go away.

Not to be able to move around or do things without thinking - that's tough. I may end up that way, but if I do, I hope to hell my intellect will take over, and I'll find some kind of joy and a way to contribute.

The wonderful thing with some of the things I've done - most of them, really - is to be trusted. To be able to do your thing, to work on it, hone it into my gem of creativity!

I get called 'Mayor West' a lot in airports. I've been very fortunate to have a fan base that keeps growing, and the work gets such a warm response and humor from people.

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