"The way Shakespeare wrote Fallstaff is with a heightened language and everything. That's the genuis of having Ken Branagh here as well.

It's all about scale and presence and getting these huge, epic stories across." - Ray Stevenson

"Salazar, Ken Salazar, who is a big advocate for the TPP and for fracking.

This was about trying to buy back the [Bernie] Sanders supporters." - Jill Stein

"As far as Ken Kwapis saying all those things, I think he just really wanted me in the movie so he probably told Warner Brothers, 'Don't worry, Jimmy Stewart? Gary Cooper? Who else do you like?'
