“I didn’t really understand the way the mainstream television industry worked. I just thought, ‘This is so good that it’s going to be a huge hit, and we’ll get awards up the yin-yang forever.’” Lance Reddick on The Wire [A.V. Club]

“Leo — that’s one of my best friends and I’m one of his. That’s just my boy. Tobey’s my boy.” Q-Tip on Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire [Pop & Hiss/LAT]

“When you’re not in that factory that’s on every week, and if you do a movie a year or two movies a year, it seems to the audience and to people as if you’ve quit.” Anthony Edwards would like to reassure you that he is still a working actor [Fan Fare/Reuters]

“A lot of indie rock seems to place a premium on irony. I think being honest and uncontrived helps bring people back to the notion of fun in rock and roll.” Craig Finn [AP via MSNBC]
