The only way to make money as a manager is to win in one place, get fired and hired somewhere else.
You would think, in an ideal world, that if you were in a really good film and did a really good job, whether it was a big film or not, you would get hired a lot; but that is not my experience.
I just needed a job. Before being hired as an usher at the CBS Theatre, I didn't even know there was a show business!
Females get hired along procreative lines. After 40, we're kind of cooked.
I look for people who have drive, who have ambition, who are humble. I've hired many people at very strange places.
As an actor, you're pretty much a hired gun. You are reading other people's words off of a page and doing what they want you to do.
Usually, I get hired because I'm tall.
On the one hand, I'm grateful to be hired and thrilled to be paid.
In an age of social media and content being key, it's important to change the mold where you have $100,000 to $150,000 for one video. I hired some guys that are young, just out of college, and we used some new, far-less-expensive cameras and technology to make videos.
I hear from everybody, and they say 'Joe, nowhere but in Washington do they think not working together makes sense.' We're not hired to fight.
I still treat every job as if I might never get hired again as far as the way I save money and live really modestly.
I started working with Timely in 1946. Stan Lee hired me.
My temperament is not the adventuresome sort that enjoys starting new projects every six months. I love ensemble, nine-to-five stability. There's a family dynamic in making a television show that you don't get on a movie, where you're a hired gun for a few months.
It's beyond my control who's going to cast me or how you're going to pigeonholed, so for me, it's just I want to keep doing different things because I want to get better, so hopefully I'll be hired to do them.
When hired three years ago, I willingly accepted the challenge of leading the Bulls back to the type of team this city richly deserves. I'm proud of the fact that each year the team has taken another step toward an NBA championship, and played with intense pride and determination.
