“Maybe we get around to doing another Blade, except, from what I’m reading, every other actor is talking about playing him, and nobody is talking to Wesley. How strange that they don’t come and talk to me about it.” —Wesley Snipes, who is facing a three-year jail term for not paying taxes [Splash Page/MTV]

“I couldn’t sleep last night I was so freaked about this. You should have seen me all geeky when I saw the names of the new songs on the sheet music out on their music stands. I was like, ‘Oh my God, it’s happening.’” —Taylor Swift on her excitement over recording songs off her new album accompanied by an orchestra [LAT]

“The only negative aspect is that I’m still writing as if I was in my 20’s where I’m clearly on the other side of life. Those scenes are fun, but where I used to be able to knock off seven takes in a row, now after the third, I’m like, ‘you guys got that right?’” —David Cross on the drawbacks of doing physical comedy [Pop Wrap/NYP]

“I found out they’re making another when somebody saw it on the Internet. Nobody bothered to call me. I’m not in it, but even so, they’ll work Bourne into the title I guess. Universal just wants to call everything the Bourne something. So I guess they are trying to make another franchise and as they say, ‘It isn’t over until it’s over.’” —Matt Damon [Parade]

“I’m kidding … it’s not true, not right now. I’m looking forward to it. With all the rumors, by now I should have five or six grandchildren.” —Tina Knowles, mother of Beyoncé, denying rumors that her daughter is pregnant [Ministry of Gossip/LAT]
