Eric B. & Rakim
”My kids know every word to ‘Microphone Fiend.’ How many kids do you know that can rap Rakim?”

”I’m not good. I started during [the filming of 1998’s TV movie] The Rat Pack because Sammy Davis Jr. played.”

Phil Gordon’s Little Blue Book 2006
On the Ocean’s set, ”Matt plays [poker], Casey plays, everybody but George. My claim to fame is I beat [pro poker champ] Phil Ivey heads-up.”

Corinne Bailey Rae
”I got into her through Venus. She’s got songs in that movie…sort of whimsical, and a great counterpoint to [Peter O’Toole’s character].”

”I like to golf with my older daughter. She’s got a beautiful swing. So does my younger daughter, but she’s not into it so much.”
