“Good people will find this offensive. I, too, get worked up when I hear about Harvey Weinstein and other people who have taken advantage of people. But I also believe very strongly that we don’t want to live in a world where accusations ruin people’s lives. We have tried that as a human race and it doesn’t always, doesn’t work out great, you know? So accusations are very different than proof and, you know, we obviously are going to support people that haven’t done, that haven’t been proved guilty.

Not only do I support him as a friend, but I’ve known him for 20 years. I’ve worked with him for 20 years and I’ve never seen any behaviour like that described."

“We read the pilot and were like, this is a real work. So when you see it you’re like, ‘Oh, I can really trust this guy. Actually, I remember that we didn’t really improv that much, because we knew he had a specific way he wanted it done. And so we followed his lead.”  

 Tony Hale on the "Pilot" script

“It’s the greatest thing ever. That’s why I’m so excited to go in and see this. He kind of put us all in the back of the station wagon and drove us to the grocery store, and we got to shop and fill up the cart with him, but we have no idea what he went back in the kitchen and cooked.”

"the minute you meet him you know smart he is. Honestly, acting-wise I would trust him to tell me what to do in a heartbeat — and I don’t feel that way about a lot of people I’ve worked with. Less is more with him and I appreciate that.”  

 Jessica Walter on working with Mitch Hurwitz

“I trust him with my life. I always have, and that’s the truth. No matter what, I know what he’s doing will be fantastic. And without that, it wouldn’t work, but we all feel the same way and we’d all do anything for him because of it.”  

 Portia de Rossi on working with Mitch Hurwitz

“I am stunned by the performances. This year I really feel that it was more about the actors.”
