Count von Count
''Because who doesn't love Sesame Street? That guy would count anything. Flowers, bats, cookies on Cookie Monster's plate, hairs on Bert and Ernie's heads. I can't think of a single person I know who didn't pick up at least a little of their numerical knowledge from Count von Count.''

''Don't call this cheating! A vampire's a vampire, okay? It's hard to believe that a few years ago, no one knew who these guys were — and now, they seem to be the musical guest every time I watch SNL. Just try turning on one of their first hits, 'A-Punk,' and not dancing. It's impossible. Even Barack Obama is a giant fan. He personally asked them to support his reelection campaign. I don't think it gets bigger than that?''

Lestat de Lioncourt and Louis de Pointe du Lac
''I might be more of the Twilight than Interview with the Vampire generation, but sorry Robert Pattinson. Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt are the original sexy vampires. Kirsten Dunst might be one of my biggest inspirations acting-wise, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't jealous of her for [kissing Brad in] this one.''

''I realize that this is Hollywood and I'm supposed to be touting the benefits of eating pureed kale for breakfast. But since they only sell this stuff around Halloween nowadays, I think I'm allowed a free pass. There's something so delightful, after all, about those breakfast cereals that turn the milk into a bowl of sugar. Count Chocula might be a little creepy looking, especially on the newer boxes, but he hands down wins for best cereal name.''

''Wesley Snipes is pure badass in this movie, even if technically he's only a half-vampire. Everything from his insane leather outfit, to steely attitude, to his ridiculous fighting skills is pure genius. I kept thinking of Blade when we were doing our stunt training for Vampire Academy. Did I succeed in replicating his moves? Probably not, but I'll let audiences be the judge.''
