Adam Goldberg's Quotes

  • (2007 - On what role stands out the most) There's absolutely no question that it's Dazed and Confused (1993). I think of that as being my first real movie. Up until that point, I would get a job. It could be speaking barely - or not speaking, in the case of Designing Women (1986) - doing these little parts, and then I'd go back to my job at the bookstore. Dazed and Confused (1993) sort of drew that line in the sand, where even though I didn't really make any money, I knew I could never go back into the bookstore, because it would seem strange. Beyond that sort of superficial, practical effect, I always feel bad for people who didn't have a first experience like that. I did that film with these kids, and a lot of them, it was their first time on location. It was definitely a fun movie, but it operated on so many levels, because there was the life outside the movie. It's this really abbreviated, condensed, high-octane equivalent of the college experience I essentially never had. And on another level, I think we all really felt that we were part of an incredibly unusual creative process, because it was a collaborative effort, and we were taken really seriously by Rich [Richard Linklater]. He's one of those guys that for years, I wished was directing everything I'd been in. And it's sort of bittersweet, because it's the thing that breaks your professional hymen, and you're always trying to recapture that spirit. But the nature of the business doesn't normally allow for such a creative atmosphere in what was essentially a studio movie.
  • (On making Deja Vu (2006)) A surprisingly collaborative experience, which I had very little expectation of, at least going in initially to meet [director] Tony Scott, who ends up being one of these guys who... I think it's an important lesson. You assume that these guys who are elder statesmen, in a sense, who are such visionaries, are just going to move you to your tape mark and pull your strings and then call "cut". But he solicited quite a lot of actor input, and there was a lot of scientific stuff that I became very, very involved in. I became really immersed in all this quantum-physics stuff, at least as much as my brain could process, which is fairly limited. My brain is a sieve when it comes to languages and science. And math. Anything exercising any sort of non-verbal skill. And I really enjoyed it. I was surprised, and Val [Kilmer] and I had a really nice time together. He's a hoot, so we were sort of like the bad kids on the set.
  • (On Mr. Saturday Night (1992)) That was my first movie, I guess. Whatever I ended up saying in the movie, I believe, was cut out. I think there was a reaction shot left in. But the experience at the time - I was 21, and I was genuinely excited in a way that I don't think I was for very much after that, because I was filled with that sort of naive conviction that once the ball started rolling, there'd be no stopping it, and this business would be a cinch, and all these other things. It was my first real job. I mean, I had done some TV stuff, but it was within the first 18 months of having started working.
  • (On what he remembers most about making Saving Private Ryan (1998)) I suppose I mostly remember my death scene. Pretty much any time I'm beat up, or I beat up somebody, or I get killed, it ends up being a fairly memorable experience. That, again, was one of those cathartic things, dealing with an issue I tend to have a lot of problems wrapping my head around-that being mortality. It was definitely a really exciting day, a kind of fulfilling experience. Mainly I just remember being incredibly tired. The lines began to blur between what was real and what wasn't, which I think was certainly part of the idea of sticking us in a boot camp, and directly into shooting without a break. But it felt like a very noble experience, and you have very few of those. At least, I've had very few of those experiences, where you feel like you're really doing something important on a much larger scale than to satisfy your own creative needs and pocketbook.
  • (On making How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)) God, what do I remember from that? The hotel bar, really. I don't remember much. Making some money.

With over 75 acting credits, Goldbergโ€™s career has spanned for more than four decades. He is best known for his roles as Private Mellish in โ€˜Saving Private Ryan,โ€™ Mike Newhouse in โ€˜Dazed and Confused,โ€™ and Troy in โ€˜Friends.โ€™

Early Life and Education

Adam was born to Earl and Donna Goldberg, who were both involved in the entertainment industry. Earl was a television producer, while Donna was a casting director. Adamโ€™s father is Jewish, while his mother is of lapsed Catholic with Irish, German, French, and Mexican ancestry. Growing up around show business, Adam developed an early interest in actingโ€”attending Hollywood High School Performing Arts Magnet in Los Angeles before graduating from SAR High School outside New York City.

Drawing inspiration from his parentsโ€™ work experience, Adam ventured into acting at the age of 22 with his debut in Billy Crystalโ€™s โ€˜Mr. Saturday Nightโ€™ (1992).

In 2009, his band released their debut album โ€˜Eros and Omissions.โ€™ Adam even performed as Goldberg Sisters in a series of live shows across America in the early 201s.
