I decided to do it because I wanted to do comedy stuff so bad.” —James Brolin on deciding between impressing his wife, Barbra Streisand, or appearing in The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard [LAT]

“I, well, I’m tapering back ‘fantastic’ ‘cause I think I overused it too much. ‘I’m fantastic.’ And then later I realized, ‘No, I’m not. I’m not bad, but I don’t know if I’m fantastic.’ Yeah, it’s like too many exclamation points in e-mails. I do that a lot, too.” —Will Ferrell [Beck.com]

“I feel like there’s going to be another sad, brutal Hollywood suicide if I don’t win [an Emmy] by the time I’m done playing Dwight. I’m going to be another statistic, another chalk mark in the Hollywood Hills.” —Rainn Wilson wants an Emmy [Vanity Fair]

“I always thought you reached icon status after you left this world. I never signed up to be a role model as such. Of course, ever since I was a little girl I had an idea of what I wanted to do — which was to pursue my dream of being a successful actor.

“I’ve got it in my contract that I only work with pretty boys. My next movie is with Ashton Kutcher. He’s one of the fittest guys I’ve ever seen.” —Katherine Heigl [Showbiz Spy]

“The character and the real Charlyne went into the documentary part knowing she would learn from asking questions. It’s an experience thing. But I don’t think I have any more of an idea what love is, actually. I’m just questioning it. Everyone should question it instead of just assuming it is what it is.” —Charlyne Yi [USA Today]
