Steve Buscemi on Nucky Thompson 's reaction to Season 3: "I think it's made him more introspective and a little less willing to put himself out there so publicly. He's been through a lot, and he just wants to receded a little bit. But he hasn't lost his appetite for wanting things and wanting a certain power. That's still there."
Jack Huston on his shooting spree in the Season 3 finale: "In the last episode it was all-out f---ing war. And I had such an itchy trigger finger. Last season it was Episode 10, and I said to [director] Tim Van Patten, 'Man, I haven't killed someone in a long time. What's going on?'"
Gretchen Mol on the show's writers: "They can write anything. And you just have to be prepared to go there."
Michael K. Williams on his and Huston's characters: "When you see Chalky or Harrow, you know that something's going to go down. You don't want to be in a scene with them. You know they're going to start making multiples of your wardrobe."
Williams on what "multiples" mean: "When you get multiples, you're gonna die. When they shoot over and over, they get blood on the clothes, and they have to do it again ... When you see multiples of your wardrobe, it's usually when Harrow or Chalky's in the room."
Buscemi on Nucky's personality: "I think he does have a generous streak to him. He sort of responds to the way people treat him. What's that saying: 'Don't mistake my kindness for weakness?'"
Mol on the love scene between her and Michael Pitt, who played her son on the show: "I called Michael, and I was like, 'Oh, my God, how do we do this?' He said, 'I think we have to be really drunk.' And I was like, 'Us as the actors? Or the characters?'"
Williams on Chalky's future: "My mom got to see a black president. So why couldn't Chalky get to see Martin Luther King? 'Chalky, I need you to round up the brothers and sisters, we're doing a peach march.'"
Buscemi on Nucky's future: "I'd like to see him have fun again. It's gotten darker as each season goes. He used to tell jokes, he used to laugh, he used to have friends. His world seems to be getting smaller and smaller as it gets bigger and bigger."
