And most of them now today, they come to the point where you walk on a set and the first thing you know you’re looking at the sound man and you’re saying to yourself, “How the hell can they get any sound when nobody is talking!” They get all mumbly, you know? [Mumbles.] You can’t make out what they’re saying! And you’re 6 feet away from them!" &mdashErnest Borgnine on one of the things he doesn't like about modern movies [AV Club]

"Someone sent me the script when they were first making it and I didn’t want to read it. I thought ok, she’s working for some government organization, and she’s obviously going to be doing some action. It’s just not in my mind. It’s been eight years since I did that show." —Peta Wilson, star of the original La Femme Nikita television series, on Nikita [Speakeasy/WSJ]
