The human mind is like Van Halen. If you just pull out one piece and keep replacing it, it just degenerates.— Fran Kranz
The most unexpected Fran Kranz quotes that will be huge advantage for your personal development
I wanted to be an actor from a young age, but actually becoming one and seen the ugly side of the world does feel different and sometimes unwelcome. There are shallow, vapid, untalented people zombieing the streets of Hollywood, adding decadence and immorality to an already extravagant business.
As a professional actor, I don't have much choice about what I've gotten into.
I tend to be cast in comedies and I'm fine with that.
It's a rare thing when you read a role and have this immediate ownership over it, you have this take and this connection, and it's not even that you feel that you're gonna do a good job, it's that you feel like you've found it. It fits, it's natural; it's like putting on a good shoe or something.
I'm not the biggest comic book fan.
That's what I love about acting, is playing different roles.
I want to work for the character, and not make it work for me.
The actors I respect are the real character actors, who are the real chameleon actors that completely change from role to role. I love Peter Sellers, Alec Guinness and Gary Oldman. They tend to be British, I guess. People who really disappear and transform, I really like that.
When I was a kid, I would make these incredibly bloody movies in my back yard.
I was constantly making weird blood concoctions; Jell-O and milk was a good one. I was constantly ruining clothes and staining my parents' walls and stuff.
The more experience I get, the more I know to relax and let go of things because there's so much that is out of your control. So much needs to happen to get a film made nowadays and star power doesn't even matter anymore. So, me being what I am, I have to realise that to an extent.
Horror is so often a 'thinkless' genre, sort of considered popcorn movies, but you really put a lot of, not just heart and soul, but a lot of physical energy into it.
I know that I've played a lot of comedic roles.
It's a visual medium. When you get one role, you start to get cast in that role for awhile because that's what people have seen you do, and have hopefully seen you do it successfully.
There are actors who aren't on the cover of magazines but still decide what work they want and when they want it. I want a family one day. So I dream of really being able to decide when to work and when not to.
I'm still relatively unknown, and as an actor you just want to work.
So, if you get a job, it's hard to turn it down, even if it's something you don't believe is great, you still want to put your stamp on it. And you really believe that by saying yes and bringing your best, you can help it out a little, or improve on something. But the hope is that you can get to a position where you can start to shape your career.
I mean, horror films in general put humans in these awful supernatural or horrible situations, but 'Cabin In The Woods' cranks it up a few notches and becomes outrageous and totally bizarre.
