So -- what’s with the hair?

I just have hair that grows. When I can’t see anymore, I go and get it cut back, and then I go until I have to do it again. I have hair that has never seen a comb since I was in the fifth grade. I got a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Emmys this past fall, and Tom Brokaw introduced me and said, “He’s been himself, and he’s kept the same hair,” and I thought, “This is the perfect opportunity to say, ‘Tom, it’s a wig.’ ” I didn’t think of it until afterward -- I already had a one-liner, which was, “Thank you, I have a brief, nine-part response.”
