When you’re on a show that is so free with the body and nudity, you get a guest director every episode, and you want to make sure that they’re not trying to one-up each other. It will take away the integrity of our show and the character if you’re just gratuitously showing boobs.
I get a guest on the air, and they’re weird or strange, and I help them tell their story. I don’t laugh at them. I listen.

When someone stays with you and they’re not your guest, even when they are your guest they get on your nerves. When people visit for long periods of time, that just happens.

I love dress shopping, and I love talking about the wedding food. That’s what makes me happy. If you tell me to do a guest list, I cry. I hate it.
My dad sung and played piano. But he was also a man of God. He was a minister. So when Sam Cooke would come in town, you know, with The Soul Stirrers at that time, he was singing gospel, they would end up at my dad’s church, and it would always be a guest singer for Sunday morning.

There’s a couple of movie parts that I can’t remember. There was always something kind of lurking, because when ‘The Office’ started, I wasn’t a regular. You’re a guest star, so they don’t really need you. They didn’t say that, but I’ve seen the show – with or without me, it’s still funny.

I’ve been offered guest spots on the TV shows ‘Walker, Texas Ranger’ and ‘Martial Law,’ along with others.

One of the tricky things about running a TV show is that you just never know how good the guest stars you cast on a weekly basis, how good they’re going to be in the episode. Sometimes they surprise you in good ways and sometimes they surprise you in disappointing ways.

A lot of people ask me, ‘Are you going to do a sequel to ‘The Guest’ or ‘You’re Next?’ – those movies weren’t financially viable, so even though there are a lot of fans of it, it’d be a pretty small market we’d be appealing to. It’s got to be a big hit for you to really justify that.
My mobile rang around lunchtime one day, and it was George Michael. He wanted to come in on Friday. We were like, ‘okay, if that’s what you want’. And he was a very good guest. That’s a real exception to the rule.

The first time I was on ‘Johnny Carson,’ I remember being so scared, but the minute he started talking to me, I felt a little more comfortable because I just knew he was going to take care of me.

With the long-format interview, I can get into really interesting conversations with my guests.

The coolest thing I’ve gotten to do in the past few years is guest star on Sesame Street.

When you’re a guest star on a movie or a TV show, I always say it’s like being invited to a family reunion, but it’s not your family. So you don’t belong – they’re being nice to you, but you don’t fit in completely; you don’t know everybody’s story. You don’t have a history.
He was J. DiMaggio, and that was his business. He always was served and hosted – he was America’s guest. And I really I don’t think we would have the athletes that we have today and the social system in which they live without DiMaggio and what he did.
My dream was maybe someday, one night I can be a guest on a talk show, and then I will have achieved everything I want.

I have the version of me where I’m interviewing someone, where I definitely am the straight man, and I like to show a lot of respect to my guest and let them take the reins.

Americans have the right to choose to be unarmed and helpless. Be my guest.
I’m ready for whatever D.C. can throw at me. But if he stands there and tries to dish with me, be my guest.

So many actors started on soap operas. So yeah, I’d graduated Julliard and done some theater. I’ve done a few guest spots on TV but nothing that long-term. I did a little ‘E.R.’ back when it was on, and a pilot for ‘Cold Case.’
On August 28, 2010, Fox News messiah Glenn Beck hosted a ‘Restoring Honor’ revival meeting featuring sexy guest star Sarah Palin, much as Bob Hope would roll out Raquel Welch in white go-go boots on his U.S.O. tours to give our fighting men a morale lift in their khakis.

I was always prepared for my ‘Fringe’ journey to end immediately. I had only signed up for a guest role but they kept bringing me back in the third season as a recurring character. So pretty much every time I went to film a ‘Fringe’ episode I kind of said goodbye to the show, but then they kept bringing me back.
I actually never auditioned for ‘Full House.’ I had done a guest appearance on ‘Valerie’ as the next door neighbor’s niece, and from that I got into ‘Full House.’ I was only five years old, and I was on the show until I was 13.
Stephen A. Smith is the hardest-working man in sports show business. The ubiquitous basketball pundit appears on ESPN about 10 times a day as a regular on the show ‘NBA Fastbreak,’ a guest commentator on ‘Sports Center,’ and a pundit on ‘ESPNEWS.’
I was on the show previously as a guest host, so I had a little practice.
If I’m not in the theatre, I’m in an open mic night or doing a guest set at the Comedy Club, or whatever, just trying to develop stuff.

There’s a lot of comedy in ‘The Guest,’ so it was a bit more fun in a sense – it wasn’t so heavy like ‘It Follows.’
If you’ve made it big in Bollywood, such as Kareena Kapoor Khan and Katrina Kaif, and then you do an item song, it becomes a ‘guest appearance.’ That’s how it works. Sadly, that’s the attitude of our Hindi film industry.
I would say that one of the things that we are proud of is that we are attracting very interesting guest stars. One is Tyne Daly, who has done a wonderful job.
As for my stuff, I’m just doing guest verses for other people’s records. I try to stay recording, because if I don’t, I get rusty.
It’s often the guests you don’t expect to be interesting who are the best. On ‘Light Lunch,’ I remember a guest called Ivor Spencer. He was the Royal Toastmaster and he was great, a real good-time guy.
In an industry where actors are known to steal scenes and roles from under your nose Sohail bhai has been going out of his way to be good to me. It’s true he got me Subhash Ghai’s ‘Paying Guest.’ The role was offered to Sohail bhai. When he couldn’t do it, he recommended me.
Lance Guest in ‘The Last Starfighter’ had such integrity and held himself to such a high standard that I just wanted to raise your own standard to meet it. He is a hard-working, giving actor. He made me feel secure and better in my role opposite him.

Our guests, in fact, who buy online with Ulta Beauty and in our store is our best guest. But what she is buying online is quite incremental. She is not just replenishing like-items: she is buying new and exciting things all the time.
It’s a fascinating job, to come in and be the most interesting person in an episode. Whoever the guest star is, that’s the job – to maintain the interest and the focus for that 42 minutes or whatever, and it should be a huge relief to those people that are the leads in the shows.
I cannot stand when you go to a wedding and get fed tiny portions. I want everyone to have a good feed on my wedding day, so I plan on having several types of sausage, mash, and gravy up for grabs. Every guest will have a Yorkshire pudding, too!
I have sort of made it my mission to be treated less as a foreigner, less as a guest.

Like, on the ‘Parks And Rec’ set, I still feel like I’m a guest star. Being a fan of the show, it’s really surreal to be on the set and see that it’s not real, and getting to know the actors and they’re not their characters.
No guest is so welcome in a friend’s house that he will not become a nuisance after three days.

When I was studying at The Lawrence School, Sanawar, Sanjay Dutt came to our school as the chief guest on the Founder’s Day. He is an alumnus of the school.

It took a while for the first ‘Blade’ to get made, and Marvel decided they liked the Whistler character so much, when Blade guest starred on the ‘Spider-Man’ cartoon, they put Whistler on the cartoon, and the movie hadn’t come out yet.
You know you’re getting older when – well, first off, when you read almost any story that begins ‘You know you’re getting older when.’ But you also know it when you not only never heard of the musical guest on a given ‘Saturday Night Live’ but never heard of the host, either.
When I first began doing TV pilots, my expectations were high. I didn’t understand that world. So when ‘Weeds’ took off, I was so happy. Especially as I was just a guest star in the pilot. But once it got picked up, they made me a regular cast member.
In 1956, I received an invitation to a dedication of an observatory in the Soviet Union, in Soviet Armenia, as a guest of the Soviet Academy of Sciences.

I started acting, when I was 15, in commercials and guest roles. I was definitely a working actor, so I was thankful for that. But I never had to work at a store, although I would have liked to.
In the Philippines, the host should always be willing to defer to the wishes of the guest.
We still lend our old house out to relatives. They keep a guest book for my fans to sign.

I don’t know what my next dream role gig is, but I have so, so many shows that I’m like, ‘Oh my God, can I guest star on ‘New Girl?’ Like, that would be amazing!’
Our guest likes the convenience of being able of drive up to the store and not necessarily walk through a mall to find Ulta. This kind of shopping has been trending for some period of time.
It was a lot of fun doing ‘Felicity.’ She had just won the Golden Globe, and she was huge at the time, but she was like the nicest girl ever. As a guest star on a show, you get on the set and you feel out of place, but she was so nice to me and really cool.
The main prank that we play with props is for people’s birthdays. The special effects people will put a little explosive in the cake so it blows up in their face – that’s always fun to play on a guest star, or one of the trainees or someone who’s new.
I know what she used to do sometimes. She kept her best cape she wore on the street in there, and she used occasionally to go up there to get it and to take it into her room. She kept a great deal in the guest room drawers.
I did a guest appearance on ‘Entourage.’ That was horrible, because I’m used to analysing the characters, working with all the details… and they said, ‘No no no, walk and talk, walk and talk! It’s energy energy energy!’ – so it didn’t quite suit me.
My first appearance as a guest on The Tonight Show was in ’81.
I believe it is wrong for Canada to follow the path of countries who exploit large numbers of guest workers, who have no realistic prospect of citizenship. It is bad for our economy in that it depresses wages for all Canadians, but it’s even worse for our country.
Oh my gosh, I would love to guest star on ‘Entourage.’
When you’re guest-starring, it’s very nice, but you’re there very briefly, and it’s right there in the name: You’re a guest. It’s very hard to get a real sense of belonging. With recurring and regular roles, at least you have a sense that this is a home and a steady place.
Should we attempt border security first, which I believe we should, we still need to face the fact that comprehensive reform is necessary. This must include a guest worker program and dealing with the 11 million people who are here today that are contributing to our economy.
Someone asked why I invited Jon Stewart to be the first guest on the ‘Journal”s premiere in 2007. ‘Because Mark Twain isn’t available,’ I answered. I was serious.
When I gave a direction to an actor in the show, I know their whole journey better than a guest director could know it.
Ab-Souls Outro’ serves as a jazzy, spoken summation of ‘Section.80’s themes. Guest cohort Ab-Soul opens the song with one urgent verse after another: Flowing freely like the saxophone behind him, his words advocate veering outside life’s most predictable pathways.
I’ve been told I’m a good guest. I don’t take up much space, I don’t eat a lot, and I keep my complaints to a minimum.
The one show that I will continue to be a guest on is ‘The Daily Show’ with Jon Stewart, if he’ll have me. It’s not competitive with CNN and it’s too much fun.

I’m incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to bring Mae to work with me as I take on the guest role of ‘Mary McGowan.’
I’m very much looking forward to relentlessly focusing on ensuring an excellent guest experience, removing unnecessary complexity from our operations, championing innovation, and pursuing our mission of making better food accessible to more people.
But also, the guest workers program, it’s quite often misused, meaning people could come in as part of a guest workers program and after two weeks in the fields, they’d run off to do every other kind of job that isn’t covered by a guest workers program.
Being a host or a guest or a pundit, you really want to say something that’s interesting and potentially provocative, that’s going to stick with people. The last thing you want to say when you’re a politician is something provocative.
K. Michelle was the worst guest for me.
I had told my agents that I didn’t want to do television. I can’t believe I had that gall, looking back on it. I would never condescend to do TV, and then ‘Taxi’ called up for a guest spot in the first season. And my common sense kind of took over, I guess.
With Christopher Guest films, we have a lot of say.
It’s so funny, I’ve done so many projects where I’ve been interrogated. I guest starred on almost every hour drama, and I’m always the guy they think is the bad guy but then they find out is not.
When I was born, my parents – my mother especially – couldn’t come to terms with that fact that they had another baby girl. I know these stories in detail because every time a guest visited, or there was a gathering, they repeated this story in front of me that how I was the unwanted child.
I came to bobsledding quite by accident. I was on a skiing holiday in St. Moritz and took a guest ride. I liked it. I thought it was a thrilling experience. It is scary. I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was apprehensive at first.
I was once asked to be a guest presenter on ‘The Big Breakfast’ for a week while Chris Evans was away, but I said no as I knew I’d be hopeless. If they asked me to guest present the ‘Today’ programme on Radio 4, however, I’d jump at the chance.
I did a guest episode of ‘Royal Pains,’ and then right after that, ‘Supergirl’ happened, and I was like, ‘How did I get here?’ Every day, I walk on set, and I’m waiting for someone to be like, ‘Ma’am, you can’t be here.’
My favorite Luna disc is our third, ‘Penthouse,’ a sparkly, moody album that works from track one all the way to track 11. Tom Verlaine of Television and Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab make guest appearances. I am also fond of the final Luna album, ‘Rendezvous.’
I love my regular job playing with Alice Cooper, I love doing my solo stuff, I love doing guest spots and guest tours. So I just love to play, and I’ll play with anybody that’ll have me, just about.
I got the first thing I auditioned for – a guest role on two episodes on ‘All Saints,’ and I don’t think I had ever been that excited.
Lissa Treiman is an artist who submitted a guest strip to me back in 2008 and whose work I’ve followed since. She works in animation. When I first mentioned on Twitter that I was interested in writing a series but not drawing it, she got in touch.
One sometimes feels a guest of one’s time and not a member of its household.
You know it’s funny that none of the regular late-night shows now use guest hosts the way Johnny did. No one talks about it much, but it’s curious that they don’t do it. They would each have to be asked the reason why they don’t.
My very first role was the character of Barbara Winslow in the movie ‘Marmaduke.’ Up until that point, I had only done commercials. I had never done a guest star role or a series, and yet they cast me!
Unless you’re a salesman, or a bad guest on a talk show, you don’t call someone by his name that often.
I started on ‘Saturday Night Live’ the same time Conan started on Late Night. We just had a relationship because I would be upstairs in the studio and whenever he couldn’t get a guest – which was often back then since he was just starting out – he would just call me down to be a guest.
I have to say, working with Dan Stevens in ‘The Guest’ and seeing his transformation was incredible. Also Kate Winslet. Off set, she’s loud and sweary, but when she walks on set, she has this calmness and is so centred.
Actually, guest star roles are really hard. Since you have to walk into a show where the cast has been working together for a long period of time, it can be a real challenge. And you have to feel your way around that while still making an impact on the overall effect of the show.
When I first worked with Mark Harmon I was 15 years old on ‘Harts of the West.’ He had a pretty heavy guest role as a drunken rodeo clown in our second or third episode.
Some of the Christopher Guest movies, when I’m not really like myself, when I have my hair dyed blonde or had a faux-hawk haircut. Those I like to watch because it takes you away from your real self.
Chris Guest movies are funny.
I do think sometimes there’s danger in guest appearance mania. I’ve seen too many examples that sound cool on paper, like ‘Oh, get that guy to sing the hook on that guy’s song,’ and then that’s all it is. It’s a cool idea that sounds good on paper.
