We asked Jane Fonda if she would like to meet American pilots in Hanoi, but she refused, she didn't want to.
Pilots enjoy the fun and challenge of handling the fancy machine.
I met dozens of pilots and would go on dates. I had the opportunity to go up in one of the planes, but I was scared of flying.
And most of these pilots were lost during the first five flights.
I've had a long line of failed television programs, pilots that were never picked up, series that didn't go very long. I've learned that there's really nothing you can do. If it's not in my control, I try not to worry about it.
So just as I want pilots on the planes that I fly, when it comes to monetary policy, I want to think that there is someone with sound judgement at the controls.
Pilots take no special joy in walking. Pilots like flying.
I paid my way through school doing set construction for film and television. I'm a member of Local 44. I was a construction coordinator on 'Beverly Hills 90210' for 4 1/2 years and ran their whole construction program. I did two other pilots as a coordinator for Aaron Spelling.
We were flying on a winged vehicle that would do reentry different than we had ever done before. So all of those were firsts. Test pilots truly love firsts.
I've done 10 or 11 pilots for network television, which is ridiculous.
Learning to fly an airplane taught me a way of thinking, an approach to problem-solving that was applicable and effective. Pilots are very methodical and meticulous, and artists tend not to be.
Most of the pilots I choose do not have high-concept ideas, so for me it's not the idea as much as the execution of the idea, and if the idea, like you take a bar in Boston, that's not a high-concept idea. But if it's executed well, it makes a great show.
For 'Breaking Bad,' it was like, that's one of the best pilots, probably the best pilot I have ever read.
Disney has been such a big part of my early career. I've done two pilots for Disney, and I've been working with them since I was 16, and I just turned 21.
I tested for a couple of pilots, but they said I was too tall.
