Shia LaBeouf on his role in next year's highly anticipated fourth Indiana Jones movie: "I don't even know what I'm playing in this movie. We're only a couple weeks out and I have no idea what I'm doing. I don't think they're going to show me anything. What they'll do is they'll lock me in a basement and every once in a while they'll come in with a new weapon and ask me what I think and then they'll leave."

And on his involvement in Transformers: The Game: "Even if I wasn't in the movie I'd want to be in this game because I'm a game nerd and a Transformers nerd... and a nerd in general."

Jerry Seinfeld on his forthcoming bee movie: "Bees have the only perfect society on earth. Other insects are just kind of crawling around. They don't have the sophistication of the bee. They have no crime, they have no drugs, they have no rape. A little rape, but it's not that bad."

And Seinfeld on meeting Spielberg, who convinced him to make the bee film: "For a Jewish boy who grew up on Long Island, to have dinner with Steven Spielberg is like being bar mitzvahed twice."

John Safran (no, not that one) tries to join the KKK


This guy has a new show on the Sundance Channel. If you're not watching it, you're missing out on a real original voice. Safran is the scrawny Yeshiva-bred turned atheist equivalent of fellow prankster documentarian Michael Moore. In the above clip, he tries to be the first Jew to join the KKK. On a recent episode, he gets a Muslim leader to issue a fatwa on someone Safran doesn't like. Pure genius.
