On filming a comedy with Allen "I mean, it’s different working with Woody as an actor, because I get to spend more time with him. Which is great. It’s a little bit different doing a comedy with him, because he’s a comic master and that’s his gift. He knows... he’s very definite about timing: 'We have to make this scene move faster, because it’s fitting right in after this one. Don’t give me the punchline before I get in the phrase.' It’s just a little more mechanical, but it wasn’t a totally different experience. I was working more, so I had more direction from Woody, but most of that was just 'pass the jam' sort of thing."
"We finished it. No, it’s finished. We don’t do pick ups on a Woody Allen film. There is no such thing. No, when you are done, you’re done. You finish on time. You shoot a 12-hour day, five days a week. It’s very humane. And if he doesn’t like something in dailies then we just go back and reshoot it, he makes time for it. And he has so much time for it, because he has no set up for anything. You have the whole day to reshoot whatever you might need to. We’re done. You don’t even do looping actually. It’s wonderful."
