Q: This is Death of a Salesman. Linda LomanÖ

A: Yes.†

Q: You donít find it ironic, resorting to ó

A: No. Itís simply the truth. Whether weíre talking about Dustin Hoffman (or Philip Seymour Hoffman, God, thatís genius) as Willy Loman, or Bobby DeNiro as Jake LaMotta, or Douglas Porch as John Snyder, or for chrissakes Dan Castellaneta as Homer Simpson, you create a life. You tell that story. You live it for as long as the story calls for. In that time you, the actor, are irrelevant. John Snyder is a thing of beauty, as nothing as he is.
