Hypothetical Roger Sterling Action Figure Would Have a Dong, Says John Slattery

“I’d like it anatomically correct, an ideal likeness. A friend of mine, J.K. Simmons, plays Jonah Jameson in the Spider-Man movies, and they did a computer rendering of his face so that the action figure looks exactly like him. But I don’t think you could technically call a Roger Sterling Barbie an action figure. It’s a doll.” —Mad Men’s John Slattery on the Roger Sterling not-an-action figure [NYDN]

“Even the asshole in your office, who always seems to be an asshole, it might just be his moments. If you take certain characters … I’m sure Ken [Cosgrove] or Paul [Kinsey] always think Pete’s an asshole, he never really shows them another side. But because we get to follow him to his parents’ house and we get to follow him home and we get to see how he’s treated by society, we say, ‘Oh, well that makes more sense.’ And it’s actually made me think more about people: When a BMW cuts me off while I’m trying to cross the street, gives me the finger, and says, ‘I don’t give a shit about you!’ — now I kind of think, you know, maybe that guy just got bitched out by his dad and never thought he was worth anything. You know what I mean?” —Mad Men’s Vincent Kartheiser [Starpulse]

“I will retire from films when I turn 60. It’s a good age to stop making movies. I could start writing novels and film criticism and become a man of letters.” —Quentin Tarantino [Contact Music]

“I cry at movies that aren’t supposed to be sad. It’s something about the airplane — it’s something about the altitude, but I cry in every movie I’ve ever seen on an airplane.” —Rachel McAdams [Contact Music]

“Let’s face it, the geeks have inherited the world, and if you want to be a player in this system, you have to be willing to do some of this.” —Jason Patric on his upcoming role in Losers [Wildstorm via Newsarama]

“The fact that kids look up to me is extremely flattering. But at the end of the day, I want to do R-rated films that are a little edgier.” —Vanessa Hudgens [Star via Female First]
