See a grown squirrel cry.

Posted by on

It's better to regret something you have done than something you haven't done.
In which we take a look around at who’s being quotable (or at least, quoted) at the moment.

Vincent Cassel talks horror-comedy "Sheitan" (which was never given a theatrical release here in the US, but which is out on the DVD) with the London TimesWendy Ide:

“I was really bad. My feeling on the first day was that I was producing the movie that was going to end my career.”

Ken Davitian (aka Azamat Bagatov) discusses the long road to landing his part in "Borat," as well as shooting that nude wrestling scene with Sacha Baron Cohen, with Robert Abele at LA Weekly:

“One, he had a very good mohel. And two, that big black [censor] bar was a bit of an exaggeration.”

David Lynch does his thing for Neva Chonin at the San Francisco Chronicle:

"There are two kinds of squirrels where I live, in Hollywood. Ground squirrels and the Other Ones. The Other Ones are bigger and more acrobatic, like monkeys. These guys don’t take no for an answer. They come up with all kinds of ways to get the bird feed. It’s been so much fun to work with them. But now there’s a disc of sorrow to keep them away from the feeder." He exhales a plume of smoke thoughtfully. "You know, if you get the thing set up right, you can see a grown squirrel cry."

Bill Nighy chats about acting and his recent spike in fame with Sandy George at The Australian:

"I would have laughed if you’d told me some of the stuff that’s happened to me lately," he adds, referring to The Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest… "It was a great relief for me to wear a proper pair of trousers in Notes on a Scandal and be required to impersonate a normal human being, having not so long ago played a zombie in Shaun of the Dead, a vampire in the Underworld films and now a squid."

Peter Webber, the director of "Girl With a Pearl Earring" and now "Hannibal Rising," talks about the relative weight of previous Hannibal Lecter films with David Michael at the Sydney Morning Herald:

"To make the follow-up to Silence of the Lambs would be very daunting. To follow Red Dragon – less daunting," he says with a smile, before adding, "[Red Dragon director] Brett Ratner will kill me."

Heh. But also shooting fish in a barrel, wethinks.

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
