“As I perused my leatherbound volumes of Ulysses, Finnegans Wake, Dubliners, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, standing in my mahogany library, a lot of feelings ran across my mind. Like: ‘Damn, I should have read these books.’” Will Ferrell, winner of the James Joyce literary award [AP]

“You know, I was kind of disappointed by that Dewey Cox movie [Walk Hard]. I kind of wish it had been a lot better.” Jared Phillips of Times New Viking [Pitchfork]

“Growing up in the ‘60s, when you took acid they always said it’d eventually catch up to you, and in talking to Quentin I thought it was catching up to me! It was surreal, Salvador Dali-esque.” —director Larry Bishop on meeting with Tarantino about producing his upcoming movie Hell Ride [ShockTillYouDrop]

“To see anyone’s private life invaded and mocked like this is sickening. It’s especially gross when it happens to a guy like Cruise, who’s a great dad, a great husband, and a great friend.” Adam Sandler, in a statement sure to be considered favorably in his application to the Church of Scientology [Jossip]

“HGH [human growth hormone] is nothing. Anyone who calls it a steroid is grossly misinformed. Testosterone to me is so important for a sense of well-being when you get older. Everyone over 40 years old would be wise to investigate it because it increases the quality of your life. Mark my words. In 10 years, it will be over the counter.” Sylvester Stallone, preparing us for the next Rambo sequel, in which he will arm-wrestle the Cloverfield monster [NYP]
