“There may be some last-minute injuries. There might be some Nancy Kerrigan, Tonya Harding thing coming your way. You never know … Maybe I’ll reject the award on behalf of someone. I’ll think of something controversial. It’s better to burn out than fade away, right?” Amy Poehler on her Emmy chances [Gold Derby/LAT]

“What you see in the trailer had to be a little bit squished around so it could get on TV. I think in the final film, you’ll see it’s true to the graphic novel. He’s naked.” Zack Snyder on Dr. Manhattan’s appearance in Watchmen [MTV]

“I was a camp counselor for first-grade boys at a Jewish day camp. I did it for a few weeks, and then I just left. I left these kids high and dry with only a week to go. They were all on Ritalin and traded Garbage Pail Kid stickers. That was their thing. That’s all that they did. They would get in fights with each other, and I would just let them have it out.” Paul Rudd on drawing inspiration for his part in Role Models [MTV]

“No, I don’t speak the secret language of women. Women are a mystery to me. That’s why I keep writing about them. And that’s why I’m amazed at their devotion to me.” Neil Diamond [NYP]

“Yeah, I’ve mellowed, but not in the sense of liking Radiohead or Coldplay. I don’t hate them, I don’t wish they had accidents. I think their fans are boring and ugly and don’t look like they’re having a good time.” Liam Gallagher [Guardian]
