  • Craig Ferguson says the Conan O’Brien late night debacle was a “wake up call.” “As I watched that, whatever that was, unfold, I realized that I am not part of this — I am not part of the late-night clubhouse,” Ferguson said. “Don’t ever rope me in as a late-night talk show host.

Sadly, the same is not true at SeaWorld, which targets their entertainment at families and children,” he wrote. “You are sending a far more dangerous message to kids, whose lives would be just as happy and fulfilled without seeing a large intelligent creature jump around to music for their entertainment, and would probably take a more active interest in protecting whales if they saw them out in the ocean where they belong.” [Radar]
  • Diablo Cody says of writing United States of Tara‘s second season, “I wasn’t completely satisfied with the last season, actually. I thought the performances were outrageously strong, and obviously the show is not lacking in resources. Spielberg is a god; Showtime is a great place to be. I feel like there’s no reason for the show not to be great. So going into season two, I thought, I have to stop being kind of passive and awestruck. I’m not so green anymore that I can’t insert myself in stuff that I feel is lacking.” [N.Y. Magazine]

One second [Peter’s] on board with it, and the next he’s like ‘maybe,’ because three girls in one house is intense. There’s a lot of emotion in my house, which can be exhausting.” [Babble]
  • Joan Jett on the advice she gave Kristen Stewart about playing her in The Runaways: “She didn’t really ask anything too specific. She was more or less into small details — “How would you say this?” “How would you do this?” “How would you start this chord?” Most of the other stuff I just dumped on her right away. When we first met, I talked and talked and talked at her for hours. About The Runaways and told her stories I’d never told anyone else. I thought it was important. I gave her tape of me talking at age 14 so she could hear the way I was… I wanted her to know Joan and not Joan Jett. You get so used to the hair and the makeup and the leather jacket as opposed to the person behind that and I wanted her to know the person. I think we really did get down to that.” [Us]
