 Whether the show comes back at all is at issue right now... My producers and I had a very enlightening and well-researched program prepared to air on November 22nd itself, dealing with John Kennedy's assassination. That show is off the air now. I am deeply apologetic to Ron Fried, who worked extremely hard with me on that show. It's heartbreaking to me that the show, meant to coincide with the actual anniversary, will not be aired that night.

 In that amount of time, maybe in the not too distant future, I'll survey that again and think, is there an opportunity for me? Because in New York for example, we have safe Democratic seats around the horn to so speak, it's the governor and the AG and the two senate seats, so what I would run for and when it would be something I'd have to give a lot of thought.

 The attacks of 2001 remain unshakeably frustrating for me. The US government's response to these events has seemed grossly insufficient and perhaps even negligent in terms of this country's long-term interests. I keep asking myself why the group responsible for 9/11 committed these acts. What did/does the US and its policies represent to these people?

 Wow, that’s a very personal question. I don’t think I should names—Blake Lively. It’s wrong of me to say anyone—Blake Lively. These younger girls, whether they get naked or not, are the biggest stars, who are the role models…I’m a big fans of hers. I think she’s a really really gorgeous woman, very stylish. These are the ones who have all the influence. There are certain people who, I won’t name, but they are in and out of rehab, they’re getting arrested for drug use and they’re twittering about their drug problem — it’s a shame.

 As much as I like acting, I know that I would love to have a different life, a private life. I think doing this now for a living has become really hard. It’s really hard. I would rather go do other things and have whatever amount of time I have left in my life, have more of a normal life… I want to find out if it’s possible. How close can I get.
