Dennis Quaid has been warming the hearts of movie goers for the past four decades and more recently, as with many big screen actors, he has crossed over to the small screen. One of his most recent endeavors is the television series called The Art Of More, which is a Crackle exclusive. In the show, Dennis Quaid plays a real estate tycoon who is involved in the ugly side of the auction world.

The official teaser trailer for The Art Of More has been released.

According to Deadline, Dennis Quaid is the king of the show.

"If The Art Of More is intended to be the jewel in Crackle's original crown, then the real king here is Dennis Quaid. As ruthless real estate billionaire Samuel Brukner, the Truth actor is close to great balls of fire on fire in a role that feels part Bill Clinton, who Quaid has played before, and Donald Trump. The actor, who is also an EP on the show, lights up the screen whenever he is on – which is what Dennis Quaid was born to do."

"My parents were divorced and I know how hard it is. I thought how do you cultivate integrity in a young man? How's this going to work? I read and read and read, and I talked and talked and talked. I came across this book (The Human Comedy by William Saroyan) and I felt that there was a lot of wisdom in the book – the great questions that were being asked."

"As you probably know, back in the 1980s I had some substance-abuse problems. The day I got out of rehab, in 1990, I started playing golf. It wasn't that it calmed me down – totally the opposite – but it was something I could do and be obsessive about. I'm one of those people that when I start something I just can't stop. I'm like a five-year old ADD [attention deficit disorder] guy."
"My very first experience on a movie set was watching Jack Nicholson and Marlon Brando on the set of The Missouri Breaks. I wasn't in it but my brother, Randy, was. I was only about two months in L.A. and I drove him up to Montana to the set. We were hanging out at Jack's house every night – he loved to hold court. It was quite an introduction."
