List of Alan Arkin quotes.

I like to jump categories -- I don't like to stay in one place if I can help it.


Well, I've always been a character actor. I've never been a leading man. It gave me an opportunity not to have to take my clothes off all the time.


It's not enough for me to just be a personality and go up there and say lines nicely. I want to tell a story with a character.
