“Thomas Haden Church was an unlikely Oscar nominee in 2005 for his performance in Alexander Payne’s Sideways.”[HuffPo]

“”It came along, thank God, when it did, because I was a suicidal TV has-been at that point. Which is why I got the role, because the guy was a suicidal TV has-been. It was a major pivot point [for me].”
