Wrap-up of entertainment quotes from the AP

October 16, 2008 --- "It's a struggle. You got to win roles. You really got to fight for them. When I left Asia and went to the U.S., essentially I was starting over. It's very hard. It's a lot of work." - Maggie Q, who has landed roles alongside Tom Cruise and Bruce Willis, saying Asian actors still have a hard time getting good roles. --- "If they see the movie, they may think about who they voted for the last time and not forget it very conveniently. If they do that at least, that's pretty good. There's at least some thinking going on." - Oliver Stone, on his new movie, "W." --- "In going for the movie-star thing, the lead-guy thing, I've managed to have this whole sidetrack thing going where I'm playing these silly roles and doing great, offbeat, different things. It was just to have fun being an actor, entertain yourself while you're going for the gold." - James Marsden, who stars in the new teen comedy "Sex Drive." --- "There's a lot of running through the jungle, jumping off waterfalls, sword fighting, shooting flintlock muskets ... basically, if you took anything a kid said he wanted to do ... that's in the script." - Philip Winchester, who portrays Robinson Crusoe in NBC's "Crusoe." --- "I realized, besides being completely terrified about taking this on, that people had faith in me far more than I had in myself, and that I will keep for the rest of my life." - Demi Moore, who directed a short film for Glamour magazine's annual Reel Moments event. --- "I'm saddened and disappointed that my label chose to put out another hits album instead of new music. I've only had one studio album since my last hits package. It has to be just as confusing to the fans as it is to me." - Tim McGraw. --- "I think of Kath as someone who really tries, who's a survivor. She's trying to seem smarter or fancier than she really is." - Molly Shannon, who plays Kath on the new NBC comedy "Kath & Kim." --- "I don't know how much more I should do or could do, so I'm taking it week by week. It's getting large, it's getting too large, the question `Are you gonna show up? Are you gonna do it?'" - Tina Fey, on high demand for her spoofs of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin on NBC's "Saturday Night Live."
