The week in quotes from Hollywood in the Hub

"I was really overjoyed to find that more and more people because of the Internet the world is smaller place, people can get the content with immediacy so that that wall--that culture gap that used to be there--isn’t there. It’s not like when people in Boston were wearing what people were wearing in California three years ago."

--Arlington homeboy and "My Best Friend's Girl" troublemaker Dane Cook takes a backhanded jab at Boston's fashion sense while praising the immediacy of the Internet.

"I'm from Boston, and having a baseball bat with you at all times is a very Boston thing."

--Newton native Eli Roth, currently in Cannes promoting his role in
Quentin Tarantino's new WWII film "Inglourious Basterds," says his bat-wielding character engaged in a violent revenge plot in Nazi-occupied France feels oddly comfortable.

"The news out here is very much reporter driven, meaning we have to bring stories to work every day and work our sources. In Boston, many times we would rip from the paper and follow the headlines."

--Brandon Rudat, former newscaster at WHDH-TV, spills that he's more than a headline-stealing news reader over in Los Angeles.

“I was there in the room while the whole thing went on, but I’m not going to tell you what happened. I will say that I was caught up in the moment, with tears in my eyes and was left breathless when the bride walked into the room.”

--Wedding stylist Chad Michael Peters refuses to give the bride's fate away in the upcoming Boston-set episode of the CW's "Hitched or Ditched."

"It's an honor. We get to showcase our talents and do it in a fun setting with friends."

--Michael Schlow, executive chef and co-owner of the award-winning Radius and Via Matta restaurants in Boston, says his upcoming stint on Bravo's "Top Chef Masters" helped him sharpen his skills.
