"When I did American Werewolf in London, we went from this naked man to a four-legged hound from hell, and we had a lot of room to go from the transformation and do a lot of really extreme things.

"You can't make the gay cowboy movie and the Chinese porn movie, and if those don't make money then on the third one they start looking at you funny. So it's nice." James Schamus on the profitability of Lust, Caution [EW]

"The middle has gone out of the business. There's not a lot of work being done, sub-sub-movie-star level." Joshua Jackson on the state of his career [LAT]

"We did the four-toed statue on the show and basically we got a note back from the network, which was, 'This is too weird.' We're like, 'Do you watch the show? This is too weird?'

If someone could explain why a six-toed statue is less weird than a four-toed statue, that's exactly what we will do." —Lost executive producer Damon Lindelof on the giant four-toed statue that (surprisingly?) has never been adequately explained [Futon Critic]
