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.

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 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."

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.
