Trisha’s Quote of the Day: Even actors aren’t free from homework

That’s what was fun about [Frost/Nixon]. I’ve grown up with Watergate; I’m a little bit older than you, but I think I was 12 when Nixon resigned. But I grew up with the specter and the aura of it. But in drilling down in the research, I realized there was so much I didn’t know about it, even though I’ve seen All the President’s Men about 90 times. Ron wanted us to be ready to ask those questions. Another good thing about working with Ron is that the minute you say yes, your doorbell rings and they’re backing a truck up to your door with all kinds of videos and manuscripts and clips.
