Akira Kurosawa, David Lean and Alfred Hitchcock were the main inspirations for ‘Samurai Jack,’ along with a lot of ’70s cinema.

Genndy Tartakovsky

It’s very, very corrupting to the spirit, doing comedy. And you have to be almost a saint, like Jack Benny was, like Steve Martin is, to avoid the corrupting of it, because there’s very little work where the actual work and the reward are simultaneous, and comedy is that.

Aaron Lazar
My first job was being a page at ‘The Tonight Show.’ I saw Jack Paar come out one night and sit on the edge of his desk and talk about what he’d done the night before. I thought, ‘I can do that!’ I used to do that on a street corner in the Bronx with all my buddies.

Jimmy Dean
I loved when the superhero genre crosses with horror. Morbius. Those are the guys I gravitated towards. Blade. So for me, to be interested in doing a superhero movie, it would need to be on the dark side or a Jack Kirby property. Kamandi, Demon, Mr. Miracle – I love any Kirby.

Guillermo del Toro
Who is Jack Dorsey protecting? Who are the social media companies protecting when they ban people for reporting facts about Islamic Jihad and Sharia in America? Who? Who are they protecting? Islamic terrorists, that’s who they’re protecting.

Elia Kazan
One of the big draws of the show is here’s a guy who is ordinary in a lot of ways but, due to his profession, he’s placed in extraordinary situations that he has to make right with action and with thought. That’s what is appealing about Jack – he takes charge.

Kiefer Sutherland
’24’ is not an anti-government show, really. We’ve always relied on Jack to fight for the greater good in his own way, and at times, ’24’ is very patriotic. For me personally, I definitely pay attention to things in a different way.

Mary Lynn Rajskub
I had a fantastic father, Jack Sharp, and I will always carry him in my heart as my father.

There’s no really signature Leo DiCaprio role, like Jack Nicholson is Jack Nicholson no matter what movie he’s in.

Rocky Graziano
‘The Naked Civil Servant’ was as important for me as ‘Easy Rider’ was for Jack Nicholson. No question.

John Hurt
Every country is like a particular type of person. America is like a belligerent, adolescent boy; Canada is like an intelligent, 35-year-old woman. Australia is like Jack Nicholson. It comes right up to you and laughs very hard in your face in a highly threatening and engaging manner.

Douglas Adams
We have to let them grow, because young players can always improve. That goes for Jack Wilshere, too.

Michael Laudrup
When I arrived at ‘Emmerdale,’ Clive was the one person I got really starstruck about. It was weird, I was there with my dad and he said, ‘There’s Jack Sugden.’ He was lovely, very welcoming and absolutely massive.

Kelvin Fletcher
From the first album, we’ve had songs like ‘The Jack’ that are blues based. We also did it in ‘Ride On,’ where we went into the blues.

Angus Young
My favourite player was Jack Grealish; top man! He is a naturally gifted footballer and for me, he is a joy to watch. If I could watch any player play, it would be him. He can do everything – he is exciting and tries to make things happen.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin
And now, I still really don’t care that much but now I have music playing all the time at home, which is a first for me. Whatever. Everything from Ani DiFranco to Dave Matthews to Jack Johnson and Norah Jones.

Jennifer Garner
John Mayer and Jack Johnson are two of my all-time favorites. I love Colbie Caillat and really cool, beach-y, guitar, acoustic type music.

Halston Sage
I loved literary science fiction. In fact, as a kid, when I was reading science fiction, I thought ‘I can’t wait for the future when the special effects are good’ to represent what was in these books by Arthur C. Clarke, Alfred Bester, Philip K. Dick, J.G. Ballard, Jack Vance.

Matt Groening
When I was nine years old I use to copy – not trace – the covers of the Donald Duck comics. Many years later I became a close friend of Jack Hannah, the director of the Donald Duck film shorts.

William Jackson
Generally my response to seeing something really symmetrical and perfect is… it’s the scene with Jack Nicholson’s Joker in the first ‘Batman,’ the museum scene. Him just spray-painting the Mona Lisa, and whatever, with his goons.

Oneohtrix Point Never
The Shining is my fourth picture with Jack Nicholson, or as he says, our fourth ‘classic.’

Scatman Crothers
During the writer’s strike I was walking a line and ran into Jack Black and he said, ‘We’re doing Airborne 2!’, and I asked, ‘Are you kidding?’, and he said, ‘Yeah.’ I like ‘Airborne,’ its very pure.

I had such a lack of respect for women that I just treated them as a hobby, trying to live up to the supposed image of Jack Nicholson and all those guys who were womanizers.

Christian Slater
A senator will come off Capitol Hill and they’ll be barred from two years from lobbying in the Senate. So they’ll pick the phone up and they’ll call their buddy, the senator, their old buddies, and they’ll say, ‘Listen, I’m here at this law firm now. I can’t lobby you, but my new partner, Jack, can lobby you.’

Jack Abramoff
You know, when my dad was a racing fan in Australia he would follow Jack Brabham and sometimes only hear if he won two days after a race – when the result finally appeared in his newspaper. These days I can tweet something and it’s all over the world in seconds.

Mark Webber
I’d say that acting is a side project for Jack.

Kyle Gass
I suppose they call me a woman’s director because there were all these movie queens in the old days, and I directed most of them. But I also directed Jack Barrymore and Ronald Colman and James Stewart, to name a few.

George Cukor
In ‘A Boy’s Own Story’ and ‘Jack Holmes and His Friend,’ my idea was to take someone totally different from my real self and, at the same time, to assign to him my own life trajectory.

Edmund White
Jack Bender is a real actor’s director. Because he was an actor, and because he directed theater, he really enjoys that process.

Michael Emerson
I really enjoy those characters like ‘Profit.’ With those elements that are shady and dark, you’re not responsible for being a likable character. Like some of Jack Nicholson’s characters, you remember them for so long.

Adrian Pasdar
My eldest son, Jack, grew up with me as a ‘part-time’ dad.

Mike McGavick
Jack White is an extraordinary person because he’s like a three-dimensional chess player. He thinks so far ahead.

Jimmy Page
Jack Nicklaus is the greatest winner I’ve ever seen.

Dan Jenkins
I learned another lesson from Jack Welch. It was in 1998, and at that time, we were one of the most valuable companies in the world. I said, ‘Jack, what does it take to have a great company?’ And he said, ‘It takes major setbacks and overcoming those.’

John T. Chambers
I get carded for soda, you know, when I go to the supermarket. I mean, they card me for everything. You know, I can’t even get through a hand of black jack without getting carded, like, five times.

Macaulay Culkin
I got to see Jack White. I love his new album. There’s a song on the album called ‘I Think I Should Go to Sleep’ that my son loves. We play it on a loop around the house, and he just bounces around.

Adam Pally
My first car was a 1976 Toyota Corolla Liftback in red, like the one in ‘The Blues Brothers.’ I painted a Union Jack on the roof. I was absolutely in love with it until I destroyed it, which broke my heart!

Richard Hammond
I take a four-pin extension lead, so I can jack one plug in the wall, and I’ve got four plugs there for me. With all our phones and different gadgets, I think everyone should carry one. It’s become a crucial part of my travel kit.

Colin Salmon
I love getting on You Tube to look at the old comics. I am in my element seeing guys like Jack Benny and Phil Silvers give interviews.

Bruce Forsyth
I’m not sure I can explain the nature of Jack Kennedy’s charm, but he took life just as it came.

Gene Tierney
The name Jack was given by an American tourist.

Jack Ma
I thought they’d get one of us, but Jack, after all he’s been through, never worried about it I thought it would be me.

Robert Kennedy
I can like Jack Nicolson’s Joker, and I can like Heath Ledger’s Joker. There’s other Jokers I don’t have to like.

David Harbour
I watching this Disney documentary, and I’m not Disney, but I was thinking about Mickey Mouse and he became an icon. Walt moved onto other things but he made him exist. I was thinking, ‘Wow, is ‘Samurai Jack’ my ‘Mickey Mouse?’ Am I stupid to stop working on it?’

Genndy Tartakovsky
This whole ‘Mondo’ thing started when I saw Jack White perform at Coachella a couple of years ago. It was like a religious set, man.

Joshua Ostrander
I would’ve loved Jack Kennedy. I would’ve loved to have campaigned for him and supported him. I wish there were more like him today.

Rob Lowe
The magic of ‘Jack’ is that it’s unique, there’s not a lot of stuff like it.

Genndy Tartakovsky
I love sleeping in my son’s silly racecar bed. I love watching hours of ‘Yo Gabba Gabba.’ I love long playdates with his best friend Jack and traveling with Zev. Most of all I love coming home from work and seeing Zev run up to me saying, ‘My mommy’s home! My mommy’s home!’

Marissa Jaret Winokur
The challenge is making sure that every single moment is honest, no matter what. It’s doing Eric Carter justice. Not trying to fill Jack Bauer’s shoes. Not trying to step into Kiefer’s legacy.

Corey Hawkins
Yeah, Travis Scott’s dad taught me how to ride minibikes and how to repair the engines. His name’s Jack Webster. Jack had a drum set and his brother had a bass. So I used to play with them, and that’s what started me wanting to get into music and take it serious. And this is before rap.

DJ Premier
When they asked Jack Benny to do something for the Actor’s Orphanage – he shot both his parents and moved in.

Bob Hope
I think Michael Crawford realised, I think we all realised, once we’d gone the route of casting a very young girl, you can’t really cast a 65 year old man opposite. Slightly different resonance I think. No, we weren’t going to go there. We’d have Jack Nicholson in the lead.

Andrew Lloyd Webber
The fact is, Bush’s war policy has failed. It’s failed! Who better to say so than Jack Murtha?

Rahm Emanuel
Just like I gave Jack Ma and Alibaba the luxury of staying private for longer, I am now giving Arm the gift of being private. My only message to them now is take my investment and let’s go, go, go.

Masayoshi Son
I would love to work with Johnny Depp. I really admire him as an actor, and personally, in my opinion, his portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow is one of greatest performances given by an actor. I love his creative sense and the way he creates a character, so it would be a dream come true to work with him.

Caroline Sunshine
Bob Smith from Brooklyn is a guy who sometimes gets hung with problems and fears. Wolfman Jack is a happy-go-lucky guy who knows how to party. The challenge of my life has been letting more and more of Bob Smith go, becoming the Wolfman on an almost full-time basis, while still taking care of business.

Wolfman Jack
Jack Abramoff is the world’s best lobbyist – for the Federal Penitentiary System.

P. J. O’Rourke
Badou Jack is a great fighter, but there is a lot that he does that I do better. I have enough power to take him out.

George Groves
Yeah it would be really cool to disappear. Like Jack Nicholson in ‘The Passenger.’ Isn’t that the final frontier? Being able to erase everything everyone knows about you and just be a stranger has become extremely seductive.

Oneohtrix Point Never
It is a big adjustment but I’ve always loved that old saying of Jack Nicklaus: ‘I retired from golf to go to work.’ That sums it up for me.

Greg Rusedski
I really loved ‘Witches of Eastwick’, the movie with Michelle Pfeiffer and Jack Nicholson and Cher.

Madchen Amick
Mick, Warren Beatty and Jack Nicholson are like perfect practitioners of love. God put them on this planet to make love to women.

Bebe Buell
Some of the greatest actors have turned superheroes into a serious business: Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson in ‘Batman’; Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, the first venerable knights of the X-Men, who have now passed the baton to Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy.

Tom Hiddleston
A lot of people think they need the best training partners, the best gym. I started with Vans, Jack in the Box, and a dream, and now I’m here. You just need to have that work ethic, focus, and dedication.

Brian Ortega
I helped Ronald Reagan and Jack Kemp develop supply-side economics.

Newt Gingrich
What I used to play was rhythm guitar before I saw Jack Bruce. I said, That’s what I want to do in life. He was definitely the main influence.

Geezer Butler
In ‘Seven Ancient Wonders,’ Jack West and his team break someone out of Guantanamo Bay. I’m not going to preach to people and say, ‘Guantanamo Bay, bad’, but I will have my hero go and break somebody out of it, and maybe people will think about it that way.

Matthew Reilly
I’m always working on new songs. With the technology these days, any idiot can record on Pro Tools on your laptop. All you have to do is plug a microphone into the input jack and anybody can have their own recording studio. So I’m always down in my basement, singing along to riffs or whoever I’m collaborating with.

Sebastian Bach
I don’t think Jack Nicholson has ever called me Stephen. He’s like, ‘Hey, Dorff. How are ya?’

Stephen Dorff
Jack’ came from… I had the same dream since I was 10, about the world being destroyed and run by mutants. I’d find a samurai sword, pick up the girl I had a crush on, and we’d go through the land, surviving. That was the initial spark to ‘Samurai Jack.’

Genndy Tartakovsky
Jack Black is so funny! On and off screen, like, he would make you laugh every day. He’s hilarious.

Caitlin Hale
I was never really a character actor – I was a leading man who was always cast as a character. I wanted to be Jack Nicholson or Jean Gabin.

Robert Shaw
I invented the psychological histories and the relationship between Jack and Susan Stanton. I didn’t know anything about the Clintons. I don’t know more about the Clintons’ marriage than you do.

Joe Klein
When I was a kid, Eisenhower had been President forever, and all of a sudden, everything in the world was all about Jack Kennedy. I was 12, interested in politics; my father was from Massachusetts, had an accent like Kennedy.

James Ellroy
My hero in comic books is Jack Kirby: ‘Spider-Man,’ ‘Fantastic Four,’ ‘Captain America,’ Marvel Comics. He was really the basis for Marvel Comics.

Walter Mosley
Believe it or not, Jack Lemmon was my inspiration. I saw him in ‘Mr. Roberts’ at the Stratford theater. I was just 21 or 22 at the time and I thought some day I would like to be an actor.

Bob Crane
It’s a spinoff of the original Cracker Jack, but it’s Cracker Jack’d. Frito Lay, when they asked me to be a part of it, I tried it, and I really like it. My favorite’s the peanut butter and chocolate.

Ashley Tisdale
Look at the better players of my era – Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, Raymond Floyd. They had pros they worked with from time to time, but out on Tour, thousands of miles from home, each of them learned to be his own best coach. I think Tiger can do the same.

Arnold Palmer
When I was a child, I probably should have been medicated about my obsession with The Spice Girls. I had the Buffalo shoes, a customised Baby Spice necklace – when I say custom-made, it was made out of plastic from the local mall – and a Union Jack dress.

Blake Lively
My fans are like, ‘Lab does what he does,’ which is really cool. If I came out with a Jack White rock tune tomorrow, people would be like, ‘Yeah, cool man,’ which is great.

I developed the pilot for ‘Entertainment Tonight’ with Jack Haley, Jr. and Al Masini, who became my business partner in ‘Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous,’ ‘Runaway’ and several other shows and specials.

Robin Leach
Jack Kennedy very much enjoyed Fletcher Knebel’s thriller ‘Seven Days in May,’ later a film. The story: a jingo based on the real-life Admiral Arthur Radford plans a military coup to take over the White House.

Gore Vidal
I don’t envy anybody else’s career because I feel they’ve earned where they’re at and worked hard. I wouldn’t mind Jack White’s gig, though. He does it all!

Brian Fallon
I began my journey as a 16-year-old boy at the Arsenal’s academy, trying to one day become a first team player, going out for evening runs in East Barnet with Jack Wilshere.

Wojciech Szczesny
I like the fact that Jack is always wearing a tie except when he’s on a mission. I do like it when I get out there and dress up, or dress down, a little bit.

Victor Garber
Oh, I don’t talk about Jack and me. Some things are too good to share.

Lara Flynn Boyle
I know who Jack Whittaker is. And some days I don’t like who I am.

Jack Whittaker
I never met my Uncle Jack. My mom was six months pregnant with me when he died. But I knew his wife and two kids very well.

Mark Shriver
‘The Shining’ has always been my favorite horror movie. It is scary and incredibly psychological without relying on blood and gore. Jack Nicholson’s performance is absolutely mind-blowing. And the mood and the feel is definitely metal.

King Diamond
I consider you as old as you look and feel. And in that case I feel – I feel I’m about 39, like Jack Benny.

Joan Collins
President Reagan, Jack Kemp and other advocates of supply-side economics understood that pro-growth tax, spending and economic policies were essential to America’s long-term economic and fiscal health.

Bob Beauprez
That is what I did with Jack, and that’s why he liked to do the readings with me because he knew I was there for him, and for our ability to blend the poetry and the music.

David Amram
Lauren Bacall, James Garner, and Jack Lemmon – they’re all gone now, but I was so impressed by them.

John Heard
In theatre, I loved doing ‘2nd May 1997’ at the Bush. Jack Thorne is a brilliant writer, and it was really exciting and felt new and different for me.

Hugh Skinner
When Jack Welch was the CEO of General Electric, he was able to produce record growth year after year by using a few simple principles relentlessly. The system of management he used was called differentiation.

Clay Clark
I have always loved and avidly read the novels of Jack London, Jules Verne and Ernest Hemingway. The characters depicted in their books, who are brave and resourceful people embarking on exciting adventures, definitely shaped my inner self and nourished my love for the outdoors.

Vladimir Putin
Rob Kalin, Etsy’s founder, never finished college. Evan Williams, Biz Stone, Jack Dorsey – the founders of Twitter – are not college graduates. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder, is another dropout. And, of course, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates.

Caterina Fake
When Jack White called and wanted me to do a video and play mandolin with The Raconteurs, I didn’t know anything about The Raconteurs at that time.

Ricky Skaggs
I’m a big fan of all the great movie devils, from Walter Huston to Ray Walston to Al Pacino to Jack Nicholson.

Ray Wise
Jack Nicklaus liked to curve the ball by opening or closing the clubface at address. I never felt I was good enough to do it his way. I didn’t like changing my swing path, either, which some guys do. There’s only one really reliable way to curve the ball: Change your hand position at address.

Lee Trevino
The most sinister aspect of Jack is his detachment, his ability to distance himself from his feelings.

Victor Garber
In Botswana in the Kalahari Desert there’s a tented camp called Jack’s Camp, which is like old Africa meets Ralph Lauren. The Oriental rugs, the old leather chairs – you feel like you’ve just jumped out of a Ralph Lauren ad.

Mark Burnett
Just as Jack Lewis could go through a whole life without meeting someone that he loved, so you can go through whole career on the stage, never meeting a play that says the kind of things you feel deeply about!

Nigel Hawthorne
Jessica Lange is a sweetheart, the nicest lady in the world. She has a Poodle named Jack.

Evan Peters
I loved being in the film called ‘Carnal Knowledge’ – the one with Jack Nicholson, which was very dark but a really brilliant movie. I loved being in ‘The Ritz.’ ‘The Ritz’ I think is just hilarious. I just saw it again recently and by God, it’s still funny!

Rita Moreno
Nearly all monster stories depend for their success on Jack killing the Giant, Beowulf or St. George slaying the Dragon, Harry Potter triumphing over the basilisk. That is their inner grammar, and the whole shape of the story leads towards it.

A. N. Wilson
Look at Bjorn Borg or Jack Nicklaus. Those guys really concentrate. With the world on their shoulders, they’re so absorbed with what they’re doing.

Tom Landry
When Jack Swagger copies my Ankle Lock and Randy Orton does my Angle Slam, it’s disrespectful. I didn’t come up with the Ankle Lock; Ken Shamrock came up with the Ankle Lock, but I waited until he retired to do the Ankle Lock.

Kurt Angle
I learned a lot from Jack Welch about how to run a business.

Kushal Pal Singh
I also couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be in the same movie as Jack Nicholson and Glenn Close.

Lukas Haas
We use music, cinematic storytelling and very stylized backgrounds to create mood and atmosphere as ‘Samurai Jack’ travels an exotic landscape. The environment is a major character in each show.

Genndy Tartakovsky
I really like the character of Jack Reacher – I thought he was interesting.

Cobie Smulders
BBC3 even started their biggest shows, like Jack Whitehall’s ‘Bad Education,’ they premiered on the iPlayer a week before it went on TV. I think it should always be at the forefront of what is fresh and exciting, and therefore it should be the first channel to exist online.

James Corden
Now Jack Charlton wasn’t wrong, I was a bad footballer.

Craig Johnston
If you want to put golf back on the front pages again, and you don’t have a Bobby Jones or a Francis Ouimet handy, here’s what you do: You send an aging Jack Nicklaus out in the last round of the Masters and let him kill more foreigners than a general named Eisenhower.

Dan Jenkins
Unless you’re Jack Lemmon or Cary Grant, there are few guys who can do comedy and drama.

Steve Guttenberg
I think Jack Thorne is an exceptional writer.

Sarah Lancashire
I’ve done all the table reads for Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow for all the pirate movies, because he’s just been doing other stuff, and I just love the whole Jack Sparrow thing he’s got going on; it is just genius, and I just think he has so much fun with it.

Owain Yeoman
Of the fellows least likely to be president, you’d have to vote Jack No. 1.

George Smathers
To be able to play Jack Kerouac or Sal Paradise, it’s mad to me.

Rupert Penry-Jones
Jack Nicklaus liked to curve the ball by opening or closing the clubface at address. I never felt I was good enough to do it his way. I didn’t like changing my swing path, either, which some guys do.

Lee Trevino
Uncle Jack Charles and his mob, I wouldn’t have a career if it wasn’t for their persistence. They worked hard at a time when no one took them seriously and no one even considered indigenous roles as a mainstream option.

Aaron Pedersen
My ’24’ death obviously sent Jack Bauer into a huge downward spiral.

Annie Wersching
Nobody, in my lifetime, in either party, has reached out with a message of hope, growth and opportunity to minorities better than Jack Kemp.

Lawrence Kudlow
There is no female Mozart because there is no female Jack the Ripper.

Camille Paglia
I didn’t know Jack Kennedy that well, but Bobby was a hero to me.

D. A. Pennebaker
The greatest comedian I’ve ever seen is Jack Benny. He wasn’t afraid of the silences.

Bob Newhart
I’ve always wanted to be – I know people think this is an insult – but a jack of all trades.

Sophia Lillis
So for a year I spent all my time hiding from Jack Charlton in the car park practising my skills.

Craig Johnston
I live with an 18-month-old Jack Russell named Chicken. He moved in about 15 months ago, and it was very hard at first because I work a lot and he doesn’t.

Liev Schreiber
You can hear the Celtic heartbeat all over Europe and America, from Bing Crosby to Jack White, from the Smiths to My Bloody Valentine, from House of Pain to Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch.

Rob Sheffield
I decided I was going to go to Wall Street, and I was introduced to some people… I met a guy who knew a bond trader at Pressprich, and he got me to meet him and the guy that ran their sales department, Jack Collin.

Kenneth Langone
Hollywood can jack you up and then help you fall, but it can also raise you up.

Rutina Wesley
Around the time I opened my second restaurant, Etta’s, I had just finished judging at the Jack Daniels World Invitational BBQ Championship in Lynchburg, Tennessee. Back home in Seattle, my goal was to recreate the sweet and smoky taste of that BBQ using our local wild king salmon instead of pig.

Tom Douglas
Jack Bruce, as soon as I saw him, it changed me. I didn’t even know what bass players did until I saw Cream.

Geezer Butler
In the case of ‘Jack Ryan,’ it was a huge collaboration, and I enjoyed it very much, and most of all, I want the audience to enjoy it, too. I want them to feel immersed in this world.

Kenneth Branagh
I know I’m in a ‘jack of all, master of none’ situation, but I like it that way.

Shenaz Treasury
Badou Jack is a puncher, but so am I.

Callum Smith
When television began, it modeled itself after radio. Many early television programs were radio programs first. ‘My Favorite Wife,’ ‘The Jack Benny Show,’ ‘Burns and Allen,’ ‘Alfred Hitchcock Presents.’

David Gerrold
I don’t think Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 majors is unbeatable at all.

Justin Thomas
Once you meet an entrepreneur like Jack Ma, you just want to make sure you bet on him. It’s not a hard decision.

Jerry Yang
My father had played the guitar when he was young, and my uncle Jack had worked for Kalamazoo, before the war, developing guitar pickups. So there was a kind of family thing about the guitar, although it was considered something of an anomaly then.

Pete Townshend
Jack was out kissing babies while I was out passing bills. Someone had to tend the store.

Lyndon B. Johnson
I’ve never been married, but I’m imagining what it’s like: Sometimes Jack snores, and I get to poke him.

Kyle Gass
Having said that, I’m a huge Jack Nicholson fan because he just goes nuts in everything he does. Having Jack in his heyday would also be a dream come true.

Paul Kane
‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’ is a movie that I just find flawless. Jack Nicholson… I just saw ‘The Shining’ again the other day; he’s so brilliant. He’s such a brilliant actor, just unbelievable.

Michael Biehn
I could say I’m a writer or that I’m a musician but I don’t really do music; I do music to go with things I’m developing. Then I do act in a few things, but I’m not really an actor. I’m not a comedian, but I am known for comedy. I just don’t know. I feel like I’m a slightly interdisciplinary jack of all trades.

Julian Barratt
Jack Palance was my distant uncle – that’s the family gossip. Growing up, my family knew everything about his face getting burned and scarred in the military and how that mutilation led him to become such a famous ‘heavy’ in films. I prayed for good scars of my own. Not just acne scars.

Chuck Palahniuk
I want to keep on progressing. I definitely think acting is a long process to be one of the greats like Morgan Freeman or Jack Nicholson.

Nathan Gamble
I like people who are minimalist with their words. Jack Nicholson thinks a lot then says something, and it’s always spot on. Nelson Mandela is the same.

David A. Stewart
My main influences have always been the classic jazz players who sang, like Louis Armstrong and Nat King Cole and Jack Teagarden.

Mose Allison
For those of us who spent our careers competing with David Broder, the hardest thing to abide was the inevitable comparison. If someone said Jack Germond – or Jules Witcover or Walter Mears or whoever – ‘is a pretty good political reporter,’ the default response would be, ‘but he’s no David Broder.’

Jack Germond
I remember that Jack Lemmon, who is one of my favorite actors of all time, says that the day he stops being nervous is the day he should leave the business.

Kim Basinger
When you consider what Tony Blair was saying about liberty, human rights and that sort of thing, it would be terribly revolutionary to sell the speeches he and Jack Straw made in 1994.

Rory Bremner
You can only go with the excesses to a certain point; it wasn’t always the Jack Daniels bottle. We weren’t just a bunch of sloppy musicians on stage drinking; we would critique every show.

Michael Anthony
When Jack Nicklaus won the Masters in 1986, it was mind-blowing. How in the world could a 46-year-old win the Masters?

Jim Nantz
I was in an acting class taught by Eric Morris, and Jack Nicholson was in the class. He wrote the script for ‘Head’, so all of us in the class got little tiny parts in the movie.

Teri Garr
I take pride in being a jack of all trades.

Ezekiel Elliott
I think Jack Nicholson in ‘Chinatown’ is a very funny character, but I would never call that a comedy.

Ruben Fleischer
Winning ‘Best Vlogger of 2013’ from MTV is a really wonderful honor, and I wanted to thank all of you out there that used your fingers and clicked a button and made this happen, and to all of you that accidentally clicked my name and you were trying to click Jack and Finn, I’m sorry.

Grace Helbig
Jack appreciates people on a very, very sophisticated and deep level.

Kyle Gass
When we lost Bobby, I would wake up in the morning and think, ‘He’s OK. He’s in Heaven, and he’s with Jack and a lot of my brothers and sisters and my parents.’ So it made it very easy to get through the day thinking he was OK.

Ethel Kennedy
I’m definitely a singer-songwriter. I’m somewhere in the vein between Elliott Smith and Jack Johnson.

Bryan Greenberg
Jack Paar was my first TV patron saint.

Nipsey Russell
I’m not Jack Nicholson. I’m not Brando. But I do mumble.

Benicio Del Toro
The U.S. won the majors 29-11 in the 1980s. That’s when Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus were carrying the ball, and when Seve Ballesteros was becoming a Brit in the minds of English and Scottish journalists.

Dan Jenkins
They were saying, ‘Keep this under your hat, but Jack Sparrow’s going to die in the second movie.’ I went, ‘You’re kidding me. The fans are going to go berserk.’

Geoffrey Rush
At the beginning of ‘Will and Grace’, I played Jack as the funny next-door-neighbor type, as we’ve seen in the past. And I thought that was my role.

Sean Hayes
I’m a jack of all trades, master of none.

Keith Allen
With Jack Abramoff under indictment, a number of readers have suggested that now he might flip and try to offer the feds some figures higher up the food-chain.

Joshua Micah Marshall
Just watching Jack Lemmon made me want to get into this business.

Hank Azaria
I think it’s surprising for a lot of people to see Jack Swagger crossover to MMA because they know Jack Swagger more than they know Jake Hager.

Jake Hager
While it was occasionally done here or there, nobody else had a figurehead like Walt doing it. Jack Warner wasn’t on TV. Walt was the boss, but he had a real public profile and he used it to his advantage. And he became a household face.

Leonard Maltin
I saw ‘The Sting’ about 35 times and ‘Jeremiah Johnson’ and ‘Billy Jack’ about 50 times.

Charlie Baker
Jack Wilshere is a prime example of how things work. He went to Bolton and did really well, then he went back to Arsenal and really kicked on. It is something quite a few of the young boys look at and think, ‘If he can do it, so can we.’

Danny Welbeck
All the good modern parts go to Jack Lemmon or Cary Grant.

Charlton Heston
Jack made it very comfortable for me on the set. We’d met socially before but never worked together. You know, he’s very professional, very disciplined and he’s always prepared and knows his lines.

Kathy Bates
I moved my family down to Miami to stay with my father-in-law, Jack, for a while. Best move I ever made.

Dion DiMucci
Jack wasn’t my type at all. I thought he was too young and too posh, and I told him that. Plus, I couldn’t deal with his dodgy bowl-cut. But he wore me down.

Michelle Gomez
I’d like to do movies. The kind of comedies Jack Lemmon does.

Bob Crane
Presumably what happened to Jesus was what happens to all of us when we die. We decompose. Accounts of Jesus’s resurrection and ascension are about as well-documented as Jack and the Beanstalk.

Richard Dawkins
Try, if you will, to imagine Dwight Eisenhower or JFK or Lyndon Johnson or, for that matter, Ronald Reagan chin-wagging with Jack Paar or Johnny Carson. Richard Nixon did, famously, go on ‘Laugh In’ in 1968, but as a candidate; and to his credit, he rued the day and hated every second of it.

Christopher Buckley
Jack Nicholson didn’t get anything until he was in his thirties. You have to persevere and put yourself in positions, and sooner or later, you will break through.

John McEnroe
When you see me play Jack, I want you to believe that that’s a gay character.

Sean Hayes
I was turning down cigarette campaigns before it became fashionable. I wouldn’t let CBS Radio sell ‘The Stan Freberg Show’ to R.J. Reynolds and American Tobacco, which had sponsored Jack Benny, the man I replaced.

Stan Freberg
That’s one of the reasons why ‘Lost’ has to end: because we can’t sit around and envision, ‘What is the flashback for Jack in year nine?’ It doesn’t realistically exist.

Carlton Cuse
Who do I think Jack The Ripper was? Do you know, I’ve got no idea who Jack The Ripper was. No idea.

Jerome Flynn
I have a few friends that have inspired me since I was a young kid. When I watch old films or modern movies – particularly ‘Gladiator,’ ‘New Jack City’ and ‘The Skin I Live In’ – I’ll also get ideas.

Theophilus London
Not long ago, in response to a spell of insomnia, I learned some of the principles of meditation, to empty my mind piece by piece. It was like the old game of jacks – cautiously lifting each jack clear of its neighbor until only the empty background remained.

Thomas McGuane
Khaki trousers soon became the province of hipsters like Jack Kerouac and Miles Davis. They were taken to new heights by Ralph Lauren, who helped popularize them among college professors and preppy men.

Roger Stone
After Joe passed away in the war, it seemed only natural that Jack and Bobby and then Teddy might pursue office as well. Public service was part of our DNA from our earliest years.

Jean Kennedy Smith
I really started acting when I was 12 when I was doing this television show called ‘Jack & Bobby.’

Logan Lerman
I grew up watching Lee Trevino, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer.

Molly Sims
Even though Jack Kennedy and I were about the same age and lived in the same neighborhood and attended the same elementary school, our paths seldom crossed during the years he lived in Brookline. I’m sure that in time, I would have gotten to know him better if he hadn’t moved away.

Mike Wallace
Just because you get a show and it gets on the air doesn’t mean jack. It certainly means that you’ll be considered for stuff, but you’ve got to fight and claw to get every job.

David Walton
Women’s director! Well, I’m very pleased to be considered a master of anything, but remember, for every Jill there was a Jack. People like to pigeonhole you – it’s a shortcut, I guess, but once they do, you’re stuck with it.

George Cukor
Pittsburgh was a great team. Coach Noll, Joe Greene, Jack Lambert, L.C. Greenwood and all those guys did a great job. That’s the team that kept us from winning two Super Bowls. It was a great rivalry.

Earl Campbell
One time I attended a big Hollywood party, and everybody was there Groucho Marx, Jack Benny, George Burns, Barbra Streisand. I walked around with my mouth hanging open, just thrilled that I had been invited!

Ken Berry
I could do John Wayne, Jack Benny, Jack Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson and entertain my friends. But I never seriously considered it as a career choice.

Phil Hartman
When my opera Plump Jack was performed in 1989, my first piano teacher sent me something that I’d composed when I was four. I remember I played it, and it still sounded like me. I’m the same composer I was then.

Gordon Getty
I love taking the salads I get from those crazy organic delivery places and putting them on a plate and then roasting my own lamb to put on top. I balance it well. And listen, if I’m not eating Waffle House and Taco Bell and Jack in the Box, anything will make me lose weight.

Chrissy Teigen
Growing up in San Antonio, I was the dork at the Friday night football games with my head buried in a book – Jack Kerouac or Oscar Wilde, years before I really understood them.

Amy Chozick
Happiness is working with Jack Lemmon.

Billy Wilder
My Mexican specialty is chilaquiles. I make tortillas from scratch, then add garlic, onions, eggs, chopped-up carrots and peppers, Jack cheese, and salsa.

Sara Ramirez
I don’t understand it. Jack will spend any amount of money to buy votes but he balks at investing a thousand dollars in a beautiful painting.

Jackie Kennedy
There is nobody on earth who could totally impersonate Jack Lewis, because you may look like him from the front or from the side, you may sound like him, but there’ll be all sorts of aspects of you that will be very dissimilar to the man.

Nigel Hawthorne
‘Surviving Jack’ was actually a really nice show that was very well-run creatively.

Kevin Reilly
In his time both on the field and on the sideline, Jack Pardee will forever be a part of the Washington Redskins’ legacy.

Daniel Snyder
I was in ‘The Postman Always Rings Twice’ with Jack Nicholson. That was fun. I think I made, like, $33 or something. I got to miss a whole day of school, and when you’re a little kid, that’s cool.

Chuck Liddell
I got to play with Jack Stewart for many years, and I appreciated that. He was a wonderful policeman to have on your team.

Ted Lindsay
You’re always trying to do something that, on one hand, honors all those stories, that is still in some way the same character that Stan Lee and Jack Kirby were doing back in the sixties. But, at the same time, you want to be able to tell new stories and not just rehash what’s come before.

Jason Aaron
Who would name their kid Jack with the last words ‘off’ at the end of the last name? No wonder that guy is screwed up.

George Clooney
There are two things that Jack Bauer never does. Show mercy, and go to the bathroom.

Kiefer Sutherland
You’ve got to stay focused without being boring – because all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Skinny, but dull.

LL Cool J
Jack Benny was, without a doubt, the bravest comedian I have ever seen work. He wasn’t afraid of silence. He would take as long as it took to tell the story.

Bob Newhart
Jack Thorne writes so well for messed-up teenage girls.

Holliday Grainger
I got my Equity card right out of NYU grad school in 2000, doing ‘The Great White Hope’ at Arena Stage. I played Jack Jefferson. It was an amazing part to walk into, to carry that responsibility for that amount of time. The challenges and the breadth of that role were pretty amazing.

Mahershala Ali
If I met Jack Nicholson, I would probably get a little flustered. Not going to lie. I’ve watched his movies since I was so young. Such a fan.

Maika Monroe
How can you not love Jack Gleeson? He’s amazing. He’s the nicest guy.

Sophie Turner
Before Jason Bourne, before Jack Ryan, there was Bond, James Bond, the original two-dimensional, world-saving secret agent.

Alex Berenson
I always liked acting in school and drama classes, but when people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I always told them I wanted to be a singer. I didn’t want to be a jack of all trades. I wanted to master one.

Eliza Doolittle
I’d love to have Jack White up. I think he’s just a phenomenal guitar player. I’d love to see him play up close because he’s got a killer voice, and he’s a great lead player, too. That would be exciting to me.

Mike McCready
A preoccupation with money and, especially, with what money meant was, in our family, an inherited thing. My father’s father, Jack, who died before I was born, was very much possessed by the idea that money was freedom.

John Lanchester
My father gave me some Jack Nicklaus MacGregor clubs when I was six years old. He cut down some of the shafts, but they were men’s clubs, so they were heavy.

John Daly
I’ve been approached by a couple of people who’ve recognized me from ‘Jack Reacher.’ It’s great… when the feedback’s positive. I don’t know if I look forward to the day when I can’t go out and get a cup of coffee. I kinda hope that day never happens.

Jai Courtney
To be chosen Mr. Basketball, I couldnt believe it. To be honored with Ty Cobb, Bobby Jones, Jack Dempsey… its pretty mind boggling.

George Mikan
If anyone can pull off a long-shot win against Gov. Phil Murphy, it’s Jack Ciattarelli, a former state legislator and small-business owner, with a plan to drive down the cost of living.

Miranda Devine
You could say everybody’s a fan of Jack Kirby. I would say I’m a fan of Jack Kirby. I’m a fan of Jack Kirby the man.

Neal Adams
I think the universe was preparing me to be an actor. I never pursued one thing for long, but I was jack of all trades. I was learning everything possible because I knew my father would never shell out money for dresses or parties, but he would always give me money for new courses and books.

Divyanka Tripathi
I want people to say that Jack Swagger/Jake Hager is a world champion in MMA and in pro wrestling.

Jake Hager
I met Jack Nicholson when I was about 10 at a party of my uncle’s, and it wasn’t so much that I knew his films because I was small, but he wore sunglasses inside at night and I thought that must mean he was very important and was suitably star struck by his charismatic presence.

Emilia Fox
The one amazing thing about ‘Jack’ is that I did it in 2001, you know, and it still survived. There’s something about it that’s connected with people.

Genndy Tartakovsky
Basically, I’m for anything that gets you through the night – be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniels.

Frank Sinatra
During the first couple of years of ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ I would go to Jack in the Box in my ball gown after the shows and get the Taco Nachos with cheese as my reward.

Carrie Ann Inaba
I never heard Jack Nicklaus say, ‘I’m a great player,’ or Tiger Woods, as a matter of fact. They just get out and do it. And I think that’s far more appealing… than talking about how good you are.

Arnold Palmer
The real Jack Johnson was both more and less than those who loved or those who hated him ever knew. He embodied American individualism in its purest form; nothing – no law or custom, no person white or black, male or female – could keep him for long from whatever he wanted.

Geoffrey Ward
When I was a kid growing up, I liked the sympathetic characters played by Alan Arkin, Jack Lemmon, and James Stewart. They were my heroes. No matter what happened to them, they survived with their dignity intact.

Judge Reinhold
The British brand is so popular particularly in the US that they put the union jack flag on top of beer bottles because it sells.

Liz Truss
I would love to work with Jack Nicholson, Saoirse Ronan, Michael Shannon and James Franco in the future. I think those actors are amazing, and they are my favourite actors by far.

Sophie Turner
When I first came to New York City, what I was thrilled about was not the Empire State Building, or the Statue of Liberty; it was the fireplugs in the street. These things that Jack Kirby had drawn. Or these cylindrical water towers on top of buildings that Steve Ditko’s ‘Spider-Man’ fights used to happen in and around.

Dave Gibbons
Every time I kick a goal, I do the Joining Jack sign, which is two Js linked together for Jack’s charity and for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Owen Farrell
The first time I heard ‘Jolene,’ I was 12 years old, and it was performed by Jack White. I remember watching that video and forgetting it was from a woman’s point of view, and forgetting it was a country song, and forgetting it was originally by Dolly Parton.

Samuel Larsen
I think the great thing about the Jack Ryan films is that the plot and the story always take center stage. If you’ve done your job as the actor portraying Jack Ryan, you are present enough to make an impact, but you let the story shine.

Chris Pine
I don’t want to be jack of all, master of none. I want to focus completely and excel as an actor with every project.

Mawra Hocane
Take ‘Jack and Diane.’ I was so disgusted with people thinking the line ‘Hold on to sixteen as long as you can’ meant to stay a teenager forever. What I meant was keep doing whatever makes you feel alive.

John Mellencamp
Leonardo DiCaprio as Jack in ‘Titanic’ was my childhood crush!

Christa B. Allen
I went to Target once and picked up three seasons of ’24’ – what I call the Jack Bauer power hour – and watched 72 episodes in ten days.

Sterling K. Brown
I have a lot of variety on my iPod. Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, artists like that, but I also listen to hip-hop as well.

Cody Simpson
I idolize Gene Hackman. He is not a natural star, not an incandescent personality like Jack Nicholson, but he makes luminous the problems of being an ordinary man in an extraordinary situation.

Brian Dennehy
I’ve always been the king of silence. I’ve always been a minimalist comedian. I’ve taken my influence from Jack Benny, who was the king of that… I’ve always done ‘less is more.’

Albert Brooks
To me, it’s the outstanding people, people like Jack Kirby that really make a difference, that are very, very important.

Neal Adams
I’d love to tell you that everyone who voted Brexit felt like me about the country, about the Union Jack and the cricket team. But I don’t think that there’s as much romanticism in it, perhaps, as people think.

Nigel Farage
My youngest son has a very clear idea of what he wants to be when he grows up: he wants to be Indiana Jones, Batman and Jack Sparrow. Yes, all three at the same time. So he basically wants to be an archaeologist who wears tights and fights crimes on pirate ships. That’s pretty cool, huh?

Rhys Darby
It’s not rubbish to say that I was a bit peeved about not getting credit for a couple of songs, but that wasn’t the whole reason. I guess I just felt like I had enough. I decided to leave and start a group with Jack Bruce.

Mick Taylor
If we had pursued what President Nixon declared in 1970 as the war on cancer, we would have cured many strains. I think Jack Kemp would be alive today. And that research has saved or prolonged many lives, including mine.

Arlen Specter
I’ve traveled with Jack Murtha to Iraq three times to learn more about the region, talk with our diplomats and military leaders, and meet with our troops. Those visits are the main reason that I opposed the War in Iraq since its inception.

John B. Larson
I find out more about Jack every week. Essentially, I’m the same character, but I’m having more fun this season because I’m doing more aliases, you know. I like the surprise of not knowing.

Victor Garber
I think someone like Jack Kirby, for instance, would suffer greatly in the transition from print to digital were he still around.

Mark Waid
Jack Nicklaus learned how to play in major championships and I think that was a massive thing. That was half the battle.

Justin Rose
I think my role, I want to have a presence both behind the scenes and in front of the camera. So I can’t say on one particular thing, so I’ll just name them all. I’ll be the jack of all trades and hopefully decent at one of them.

Octavia Spencer
Martin Scorsese, everything he does, I’ve got to see. And Jack Nicholson, I’ve got to see what he does.

Nathaniel Philbrick
With my sunglasses on, I’m Jack Nicholson. Without them, I’m fat and 60.

Jack Nicholson
I do have friends in Australia who now refer to me as ‘Hollywood Jack.’

Jacki Weaver
I am inspired and would love to work with Jack Garrett, Tyler Joseph of Twenty One Pilots, and Jack Antonoff.

Bishop Briggs
My mother, Evelyn, was an actress and singer, and my father, Jack, was an actor. My earliest recollection of my father is being taken to see him in a matinee.

David Cassidy
I hadn’t even watched ’24’ before, and the audition was kind of far away. When I got the material, there wasn’t a character yet, so it almost seemed like an assistant to Jack Bauer saying, ‘Yes, sir. No, sir.’

Mary Lynn Rajskub
I love ‘Jack’ as one of my creations and would never want to change it from what it was supposed to be. There was no reason to reinvent.

Genndy Tartakovsky
It was well after college that I learned about depression. I got my first job for Jack Paar. I realized I was sleeping 14 hours a day and just living for the Paar show.

Dick Cavett
I think one game we played the Oakland Raiders and Jack Tatum and I had an accident on the one-yard line. The only thing that Jack Tatum didn’t do was wrap me up so I backed into the endzone backwards.

Earl Campbell
I changed it to Leslie Hill, only that seemed more like a cocktail pianist. Eventually, being an admirer of Jack Benny, I took his name.

Benny Hill
Whether it’s Jack Kennedy or Bill Clinton or others, the personal lives do come into play, and people do judge you for that.

Pete Sessions
I’ve worked with Jack Warner and Jimmy Stewart – and Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, and Johnny Depp twice. I’ve had dinners with Fred Astaire and Cary Grant.

Peter Guber
Working with Jack Albertson was one of my great joys.

Gary Sherman
A lot of people don’t feel heard. I want to take their concerns to MPs. If I have to stand seven times before I’m elected, I will. Call me Jack Farage.

Jack Monroe
If it was one person I could have a bout with, it would be Jack Pye, the Doncaster Panther. A mythical wrestler obviously from Doncaster who lived in Blackpool.

William Regal
If you want to know why the coast is such an inspirational place, ask Herman Melville, Jack London, Nordhoff and Hall, Robert Louis Stevenson or Joseph Conrad. It’s a glimpse of eternity. It invites rumination, the relentless whisper of the tide against the shore.

John Cooper Clarke
It was also wonderful to have the prospect of playing with Jack Nicholson. It was a terrific part, a terrific script, with Alexander Payne and Jack Nicholson. You can’t get any better than that!

Kathy Bates
I used to be jack the lad, I was out a lot, I was mainly waking up with hangovers at tournaments rather than preparing.

Jimmy White
We saw very little of the real Jack Buck behind the microphone. He would touch people in ways that we will never know. Jack was much more than just an announcer.

Ozzie Smith
I wanna have more majors than Jack Nicklaus.

John Daly
My wife kept looking at the Jack Paar show and telling me that’s what I should be doing on television. But I kept telling her she was wrong.

Bob Crane
When I first came in the league, I thought Jack Clark and Steve Garvey were big. Then all of sudden it seemed like everyone was that big.

John Kruk
To go from playing Jack Startz in ‘Behind the Candelabra’ to playing JFK in the same year, I have now operated at the far ends of my range as an actor.

Rob Lowe
My friends are all megalomaniacs – from Damien Hirst to Jack Nicholson – all of them.

David Bailey
I’m not doing anything Jack Nicholson turned down. Any part that required a character distanced from myself would have been a reach. But the one thing I’ve always done well at, and I’m most devoted to, is my children.

Alan Thicke
Calling Jack Nicklaus’s last trip to St. Andrews was a once-in-a-lifetime moment.

Ernie Johnson Jr.
My four friends were John Kerr, who became a star, Paul Newman, Jimmy Dean, and Jack Lemmon.

Dick Van Patten
I don’t count that relationship with Ricky. It’s just like a blip at this point. I had to fall in love with the devil himself to get this sweet angel, Jack.

Christie Brinkley
That was when Neil discovered Jack Nietzsche. They went off and pretty much came up with that by themselves, but I thought it was a great song, and I was more than happy to do my harmony parts on it.

Stephen Stills
But the classic Tenacious D songwriting is Jack or myself will have an idea – I might have a riff – and we’ll improv. And once Jack’s feeling it, we turn on the tape recorder and start jamming, improv on that riff, improv on those lyrics, and then go back and see if there’s anything good in there.

Kyle Gass
In 1969, when I was still living in London, I had gone with some friends to see ‘Easy Rider’ in a movie theater in Piccadilly Circus and had returned alone some days later to see it again. It was Jack’s combination of ease and exuberance that had captured me from the moment he had come on-screen.

Anjelica Huston
When I was 23, I went to work for Jack Nicholson reading scripts. Later, I was married to a production designer named Richard Sylbert. So I lived in Los Angeles for ten years.

Susanna Moore
When I came to Hollywood, I would take the opportunity to get to know George Stevens or Willy Wyler or Billy Wilder or Freddie Zinnemann. David Lean I got to know, of course, in London. And David Selznick and Darryl Zanuck, not to mention Jack Warner, and Sam Goldwyn was actually very, very nice to me.

Warren Beatty
Jack Johnson was the first black heavyweight champion, so I took part of his name. I admired Rocky Marciano, so I took part of his name.

Rocky Johnson
I went in with Jack and Leslie, into this room that was lined with brick, and there on the side I can remember very clearly was this small model with plates for the bases – the original model with everything screwed together.

Sydney Brenner
I was first exposed to the idea of macro-molecular sequences while I was a postdoctoral fellow with Jack Strominger at Harvard. During that time, I briefly visited Fred Sanger’s laboratory in Cambridge, England, to learn the methodology of RNA fingerprinting and sequencing.

Richard J. Roberts
Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Neil Young and Bob Dylan are my main influences.

Cody Simpson
We did ‘Jack & Bobby’ in the middle of the Kerry/Bush election. It hurt it a little bit. No matter what we did, everyone thought we were advocating for one person over the other. The stuff I work on is more about the people.

Greg Berlanti
I’m doing research for a large comic book on the Beat Generation guys – Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac and those guys.

Harvey Pekar
Even before he had one book published, Jack was one of those people you could feel was very special.

David Amram
I am obsessed with the whole Victoriana thing, the whole Jack the Ripper London era, the grayness of it, the haunted feeling of it, all ancient and bloody.

Florence Welch
My son Matthew’s beloved dog is a Jack Russell. His name is Buster. Matthew picked him as a puppy, when he was tiny himself.

Rob Lowe
Of course Jack Ma was the guy who impressed me.

Masayoshi Son
Jack Buck fought through Europe during World War II.

Joe Buck
My dream role is Jack Johnson, the first black heavyweight champion.

Mahershala Ali
Six years ago, I completed the premier episode of Hawaii Five-O, and Jack Lord and I immediately realized that we had a good series, that this was a success such as we’d never hoped for!

James MacArthur
It’s hard not to play golf that’s up to Jack Nicklaus standards when you are Jack Nicklaus.

Jack Nicklaus
My kids are deep. My daughter plays music. My son, Black Jack, doesn’t forget anything.

Shooter Jennings
Adding a player like Jack Hughes, a lot of teams in the NHL would dream of that talent.

P.K. Subban
I actually knew Adlai Stevenson and Jack and Bobby Kennedy.
