"Only because it was a smart show and I thought nobody could make fun of me if I did that." Drew Carey on why he decided to host The Power of 10 [AP]

"It's loosely based on my mother … She's crazy, man, and she likes to put me in my place." Mark Wahlberg on the inspiration for his cop character in The Departed [PR Inside]

"I remember when they did Don't Look Now, and they thought that Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie actually made love on camera. It's laughable.

Because that crosses over into a porno picture, and I don't care which way you dress it up." Malcolm McDowell, who has appeared in several explicit films, on pushing the limits of sex in the movies [A.V. Club]

"I feel now looking back doing the two, I feel I made a bit of a mistake, and everyone is probably thinking, 'Oh God. Jude do you need to do another Michael Caine movie?'" Jude Law, who has remade the roles Caine originated in Sleuth and Alfie [Coming Soon]
