Now That Zack Snyder Mentions It, The Fish of Ga’Hoole Sounds Like a Much Better Idea

"The problem is, when you’re making an animated movie, the studio has an illusion in their minds — and it’s really not true—that because it’s a drawing, it can be changed at any time. It would drive me crazy. They’d be like, “You know what’d be cool?” And I’d say, “Agghh!” I was constantly fighting them. Things that weren’t broken, clearly not broken, where they’d go, “You know, you should try another angle. Maybe they’re not owls. Maybe it’s fish." —Zack Snyder, on Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole [AV Club]

"It's a little ironic. Facebook is all about opening boundaries, and yet I can't get this guy to sit down and talk to me." —Ben Mezrich, on trying to get Mark Zuckerberg to cooperate with his book, The Accidental Billionaires [24 Frames/LAT]

"I haven't interacted with any pro ball players, really. I mean, I've heard through the grapevine of people who are into it through the league, but I haven't had the opportunity to party down with the big ballers." —Danny McBride, on real baseball players' reaction to Eastbound & Down [AV Club]

“He knows how to throw a punch, tell a joke and kiss a girl. I like that. Who doesn’t like that?” —Ryan Reynolds, on Han Solo as inspiration for his character in the upcoming movie Deadpool [LAT]

"Just got a nosebleed for no reason. In a David Fincher movie it would MEAN something. Ugh my life is so boring, kill me ... just joking. My life's fun. I get to live in a desert and pretend I work in an office." —Mindy Kaling [Mindy Kaling/Twitter]

"I bake cakes for everybody! I leave nothing to chance. The PA that comes through, I bake him a cake — because you never know if he’ll be a writer next year." —Keith Powell, on how he maintains good relations with the rest of the the crew on 30 Rock [PopWrap/NYP]
