And Here Is a Giddy Carey Mulligan Describing To Catch a Predator

Says the Oscar-nominated connoisseur of our trash television: "Oh, you have to watch it! It's on in America, it's a reality show. They snare pedophiles. They go online and pretend to be little boys and girls, and they get these pedophiles to come to this fake suburban house. And then this guy walks in called Chris Hansen and collars them. And then, when they try to walk out, these police officers jump on them! Aw, it's the best thing. I mean, these poor guys, it's not like they're armed. I mean, they're horrible, but they're basically just sad, pathetic men ... And they've got this guy who's dressed in army camouflage, with leaves on his outfit, who hides in the bushes, leaps out and throws them to the ground. The Leaf Man! Oh, it's so good. That's what I want to do. I want to play the fake child on To Catch A Predator. No, wait! I want to play the Leaf Man!" [Guardian UK]
