Howard Stern on his lawsuit with CBS: "I believe you are working for one of the biggest jerks on the planet. You've worked for jerks and bullies who hide behind their press agents. Les Moonves is a bully. CBS took a C-list actor from The Love Boat and made him CEO."
Annie Proulx on Crash winning the Best Picture Oscar: "Roughly 6,000 film industry voters, most in the Los Angeles area, many living cloistered lives behind wrought-iron gates or in deluxe rest homes, out of touch not only with the shifting larger culture and the yeasty ferment that is America these days, but also out of touch with their own segregated city, decide which films are good. And rumor has it that Lions Gate inundated the academy voters with DVD copies of 'Trash' - excuse me, Crash - a few weeks before the ballot deadline. Next year we can look to the awards for controversial themes on the punishment of adulterers with a branding iron in the shape of the letter A, runaway slaves, and the debate over free silver."
Miles Davis' nephew, Vince Wilburn, on making a film of his uncle's life: "We're working with Sony on a biopic. We're gonna negotiate with Don Cheadle whose name keeps coming up to play Miles. It can touch on many things from the way he changed the wave of music of different decades from bee-bop to hip-hop and in between, and the personal side."
Paul Greengrass on making a new 'Bourne' film: "I can't wait - it's just going to be fucking fantastic. It's going to rock. That's honestly what it's going to do. What direction? We'll have a better car chase, have more exciting action, more intensity and just generally be a fucking classy film."
Also, it is mentioned that John Travolta will star in a movie version of the TV show Dallas as soon as he finishes work on "the film version of the Broadway hit Hairspray". Uh...isn't the Broadway hit Hairspray just an adaptation of the John Waters movie Hairspray? Why do we need a new version of a movie that came out in 1988? This is taking Hollywood's 'no new ideas ever' ethos to a new low.
