Every week in Sound Bites, EW checks out the most memorable lines of the week. This week features a zinger by Madeleine Albright directed at Conan O’Brien, Taylor Swift referring to herself as a “nightmare,” and an awkward Jennifer Aniston reference in Zach Galifianakis’ latest episode of Between Two Ferns with Brad Pitt. These are the best quotes of this week gathered from TV, film, music, Twitter, and more.

It’s every actor’s nightmare — or at least 25 of them. Watch the video below to see 25 actors’ early, mostly embarrassing roles cut together in a three-minute torture reel. I would say Daniel Craig, Jennifer Aniston, Natalie Portman, and Arnold Schwarzenegger should be cringing. Also that Sarah Jessica Parker’s voice sounds exactly the same, and Sean Connery in Darby O’Gill and the Little People could have been the basis for hunky Gaston in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

It may be hard to believe, but the greatest movie about bank-robbing surfers hit theaters 20 years ago today. That’s right on July 12, 1991, a up-and-comer named Keanu Reeves made action film history with one of Hollywood’s biggest action stars and romantic leads, Patrick Swayze. There is just so much about Point Break to love: the Ex-Presidents, Swayze at his Swayziest, a skydiving fight scene, Gary Busey talking about meatball subs. Even though Point Break is often remembered for its campier elements — one of its chase scenes played heavily into Edgar Wright’s action spoof, Hot Fuzz — the film arguably holds up better than movies released just a few years ago.
The story is a simple and timeless one (and one that bares a striking resemblance to The Fast and the Furious). READ FULL STORY
when he tantalized fans with subsequently disproven news that Keanu Reeves was planning to re-team with Andy and Lana Wachowski for two more sequels about techno-messiah Neo. (A rep for Reeves told EW, “None of it is true.”) But the real question here: Is anyone actually disappointed that the Wachowskis are not going to re-enter The Matrix?

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure is probably the best time traveling/heavy-metal rocking/Socrates-mispronouncing high school comedy ever made. Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey is definitely the best movie ever made about the Grim Reaper playing Battleship. Two decades have passed since those brave films made their way to the theaters. The world is different, but the same. Things are more moderner than before. Bigger, and yet smaller. The time has come… for Bill & Ted’s Heinous Odyssey. Or Bill & Ted’s Radical Pilgrimage. Or whatever you want to call it: a third Bill & Ted’s movie! So says Keanu Reeves, who told MTV that he’s talked to all the main people (co-star Alex Winter, writers Chris Matheson, and Ed Solomon) about making it happen. PopWatchers, this has to happen, but what should Bill & Ted’s 3 be about?
Reeves might just be joking, but his suggestion sounds incredible: a black-and-white 3-D anthology movie team-directed by Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, and Werner Herzog? Yes, please! Check out Reeves’ Herzog impression after the jump: READ FULL STORY
Yesterday was Flag Day, the one day of the year dedicated to Americans celebrating their national colors, but today, June 15, is actually a much more important holiday: Cheer Up Keanu Day. After a paparazzi image of a forlorn-looking Keanu Reeves sitting on a bench and eating lunch made its circuit through the magically arbitrary world of Internet Meme-land, someone started up a Facebook event called “Cheer Up Keanu Day,” urging fans of the actor to send him “letters, emails, gifts, and any other niceties and kind words” to let him know just how much he means to them. As of this post, there are over 14,000 confirmed participants. In the succinct words of Keanu, “Whoa.” READ FULL STORY
