The week in quotes from Hollywood in the Hub

"I actually got shot in the neck... Things sort of blow up when you shoot the fake stuff--a squib blew a piece of bondo (filler) off a car and into my neck. It kinda looks like a zit but it's a way better story."

--Jon Hamm, currently filming Ben Affleck's "The Town" in Boston, explains why he has a rather large bump on his neck during an appearance on "The Late Show with David Letterman" on Friday, Oct. 9.

"As young children often do, his daughter Suri has, according to Cruise, some comical responses. For example, she will sometimes throw down her hands and say 'Why is this person following me?' and has responded to encroachments on her privacy by raising a hand and declaring, 'Personal space!'"

--Jessica Corsi, a Harvard Law Record blogger, gives a blow-by-blow account of Tom Cruise, in town filming "Wichita," visiting Prof. Bruce Hay's entertainment law class at Harvard on Monday, Oct. 5.

“I saw Ben filming in Copley Square last week and I started to wonder. That’s the thing about geneology, you wonder if you can do it, then you start to play around with it."

--Rhonda McClure, a researcher at the New England Historic Genealogical Society, reveals that Cambridge homeboys Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are related ... 10th cousins once removed.

"It’s unexpected work that comes through your door. They know I can get it done for them and that’s why they keep coming to me. I didn’t have the material they wanted for the garage, so I contacted Steve and he got it. I get the job done and they keep coming back.”

--Michael Cohen, owner of Signs by J in Dorchester, says he's been busy transforming storefronts for a slew of locally shot movies including Affleck's "The Town" as well as Cruise's untitled "Wichita" project.
