“It's one of the most beautiful, haunting, and strange things I've ever seen in my life.” —Johnny Depp, after watching children in fake mustaches and pirate costumes play air piano in his honor [Nerve]

“It's a pleasure to do a movie that my kids can actually see. My kids think the name of my TV show is The Shield, Get Out! because we don't let them watch it.” —Michael Chiklis, who plays the Thing in the PG-rated Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer [LA Times]

Star Wars really made it confusing. I expected the Ewoks to be here. I was really disappointed.” —Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords, on how films affected his expectations of New York City [EW]

“I don't care about my personal acting career any more. I'm done with it. After ten years of making movies and doing better than I ever could have imagined, I sort of had to ask myself … Am I just going to keep making movie after movie and be concerned with all of that 'Are you up, are you down, are you hot, are you not?', and I don't really care.” —Kevin Spacey quashes all hope of a Big Kahuna sequel [London Times]

“When we were doing Star Wars [parodies], Seth MacFarlane actually called me because we were both writing at around the same time. He said, ‘Hey, are you guys doing something about the two-meter thermal-exhaust port as far as the aesthetic of the design of the port?’ And I'm like, ‘We did have a joke where we had a designer and an architect come in and give them a rundown of the latest fashions and how everyone was doing this thermal-exhaust port and instant self-destruct system and it's really, really cool, all the kids are doing it … but we cut it.’ He's like, ‘Okay, good.’” —Robot Chicken creator Seth Green on how he avoids comic overlap with Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane [MTV]
