"Ryan has developed this — he's like a mosquito in your face. It's like he's flying around, and you want to swat him but can't be bothered. That's my relationship now with Ryan." Simon Cowell on working with Ryan Seacrest [NYP]

"If you loved the other ones, you'll love this one. But if you expect to have F-14s flying under freeways — that isn't there. It's just another period adventure movie with this wacky archaeologist." George Lucas on Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull [EW]

"He'd eaten something that didn't agree with him, and it was as simple as that. He wasn't drunk. Definitely not." —The Pogues' Terry Woods, defending Shane MacGowan's immaculate reputation after showing up late to a show in Chicago [NYP]

"He is making films how David Lynch makes them, in the sense that he's not making films anymore — he's making these crawling, living organisms that get into your skin and you can smell them and you can taste them and they're quite tangible. Those aren't the films that I'm necessarily in love with as an audience member. Mostly those are the ones that I'll take my little sister to and try to scare her and then treat her for ice cream afterwards." Jena Malone on Carter Smith, director of The Ruins [BlackBook]

"I auditioned for another role a while ago. I didn't get that, or they cut that part out, or whatever. Then they said, 'We have something better for you,' and they wrote this thing. I said, 'Wow, that's a pretty big part.' A pretty big, annoying part." Todd Barry on his role in Flight of the Conchords [A.V. Club]
