On his best boss ever: ''My apologies in advance for the cheese but the best boss I have is really little Frannypants. She's going to be five in October and she definitely knows how to get what she wants and how to throw a 'Get me this! Get me that!' She's the boss of me. But she is just so adorable that you let it all slide. My wife and I would go to the ends of the Earth for her just to get a smile. Kevin Spacey is a handsome man but he has nothing on Frannypants!''

No signs of her demanding dentist character here.

He seems to have dropped any trace of his mild-mannered accountant character in favor of one very dapper look.

On his best boss ever: ''Seth Gordon. He's the best boss because he put me in this movie and it was a blast. He could have gone with a lot of guys over me who would sell more tickets on name recognition.''

On his best boss ever: ''My best boss is my daughter. My little two year old. She don't stand for it. She'll come in at 6:30 in the morning and say, 'I don't care what you been doing, Dad. It's time to get up and go play with them toys.' She doesn't care who you are or if you got an Oscar. But I never mind taking orders from baby girl.''

On her best boss ever: ''I have pretty amazing bosses right now at Modern Family. I am awfully fond of them. They are really really nice and smart and have gone a long way to make us feel like we are less employees and more co-collaborators, which I kinda can't believe. They listen and they care about what you have to say, and because of that, we don't abuse them or make their lives a living hell. It goes both ways.''

On his best boss ever: ''Brandon Tartikoff. He was a frigging genius in the heyday of the half-hour comedy. He was behind that whole amazing TV renaissance in the '80s and so I appreciate him from a business standpoint. But he was also an amazingly nice guy. I remember when I was a kid just starting out, he'd come to sets and take time out of his surely busy schedule and just talk. You very rarely get that kind of face-to-face, personal interaction from your CEOs today.''

Nicholas D?Agosto (Final Destination 5)
On his best boss ever: ''My father owned fast food restaurants and he was my boss for many years. It was great when I needed a weekend off for a family commitment and I had a guaranteed job, but he by no means took it easy on me or my brothers. He didn't cut us any slack. He made sure we did all the nasty stuff like washing dishes and cleaning out drains and scrubbing corners of the kitchen that have turned black after just a couple of months. I have scars to show for it, but he also instilled in me a great work ethic. And it made me want to work hard at finding a career and being good at it because I didn't want to go back to those black corners ever again.''

On her best boss ever: ''Jake Kasdan was my favorite boss. I have been acting since I was 8 so I don't really have a story about the McDonald's manager that changed my life. But Jake was one of my favorite directors to this day because he likes the small awkward moments. Very few directors let you sit in the uncomfortable and he was the first person in my life that made me realize that is not only okay, but it's funny. A lot of great comedy comes from the awkward moment and that lesson has allowed me to go a lot farther in my comedy.''

On her best boss ever: ''Ron Howard was a great boss. He might have been my fave. He's an excellent director so you never have to worry about that part. You can let any fear on that level go and concentrate on your job. And he's an actor's director because he was once in our shoes. He's kind and funny. Most people don't know but Ron Howard can even be raunchy. He's got an edge.''

John Francis Daley
On his best boss ever: ''I have to give a shout-out to Judd Apatow and Paul Feig. If not for them, I probably would not have come out to L.A. as early as I did to pursue acting and that really set the course for my career. They have a real eye for talent just judging by the Freaks and Geeks cast. Look at the careers of that cast as proof.''

On her best boss ever: ''Emile Ardolino. God bless his soul. He's in dancing heaven now. He directed me in Sister Act. He was sweet, never lost his temper but still got it done, and instilled in me such confidence where there should have been crazy shaking fear.''

On his best boss ever: ''When I moved to Los Angeles, Chris O'Donnell and his brother-in-law Bing Howensteintook me under their wing and let me work in development while I was going out for auditions and doing commercials. It gave me the opportunity to learns the ins and outs of the business and make some money while trying to break in. And they put me leaps and bounds ahead of other people. Plus, it kept my brain from atrophying. And they dressed really, really well. They were so supportive. I got paid to essentially get a masters in show business.''

Seth Gordon, director
On best boss ever: ''I actually just saw him while we were on the regional press tour for Horrible Bosses. I had this one boss while I was doing architecture who was just wonderful and he inspired me so much. He gave the right balance of letting you find your own way and figuring things out on your own and guiding you. I would do anything to work with him in the future. Things took a turn and I went toward film as a career but he was great. He supported you wholeheartedly and was very good at figuring out what you were great at and letting you run with it.''
