"I turned down Short Circuit 2 too and I now wish I hadn't. Sequels are a lot of fun and you get to hang out with all your friends." Steve Guttenberg [Sun UK]

"The problem is, they don't look any different at the moment from when Trainspotting was made, to be absolutely honest. They look exactly the same. They're a little heavier, but they basically look the same. Actors stay suspended in that timeless moment where they're moisturizing and looking after themselves and making sure they keep fit and healthy, because it's their work, it's their future employment. But when time ravages them, we will be waiting for them." Danny Boyle is waiting for middle age to really show before he makes a sequel to Trainspotting [A.V. Club]

"If we don't get it right it's really, really going to suck." Robert Downey, Jr. is inspiring a lot of confidence in The Avengers movie [Splash Page/MTV]

"I play a music mogul, like a Phil Spector, who takes drugs, has orgies, threatens people with knives and guns. It's a great part." Dennis Hopper on his role in the Starz TV series Crash [CinemaBlend]

"I was on set with Brandon and shooting the sequence where he acts incredibly gay. At one point I was like, 'Hey man, I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth but doesn't Warner Bros. have some sort of moral clause? I mean, you played Superman! Are you really allowed to do this?'" Kevin Smith on directing Brandon Routh in Zack and Miri Make a Porno [Sun UK]

"My level of success with women has generally depended on which movie I've had out at the time, so I'm feeling pretty confident right about now." Mickey Rourke [Sun UK]
