“Drugs won’t do the writing for you, but steroids can take a monologue that would have gone to the warning track and knock it out of the park.”

“You should have seen me when I was writing Death of a Salesman. I had pecs the size of Iroquois saddlebags and my glutes were so rock-hard I could have sat on Joe McCarthy’s head and popped it like a rotten beet.” He smiles. “Now that would have been an ‘un-American activity’—crushing a U.S. Senator’s melon with my ass.”
