"I never like to do parodies. I never do. It's just not my style of comedy."
"In a comedy it helps enhance things that were already there."
"It's been about 15 years, and I've never really worked seriously in CGI and I thought that here was an opportunity to do the kinds of things that I was not able to do on Ghostbusters."
