“How great would Johnny Depp be as Witchiepoo? Maybe he’ll read this, right? Look, all we need is a star. And a story.” Marty Krofft on his ideas for an H.R. Pufnstuf movie [LAT]

“I have nothing to do with this show, which is probably why it is so fucking good.” Kevin Smith, moderating a Comic-Con panel for Battlestar Galactica [EW]
