Ian Doescher

Rebel Wilson
Half of me is this wacked-out comedienne who will do anything for a buck and a laugh. Well, at least for a laugh. But the other half is a lot darker, sadder and more pensive. It’s the dark side that feeds the outrageousness and allows it to surface. I think that’s true for anyone with comic flair.

I like a movie that brings out many discussions. From my experience, every time I have done movies, they create this kind of situation. Like ‘Irreversible,’ ‘The Passion of the Christ,’ ‘Malena’; it’s so interesting. I like to explore the dark side of humanity. That’s why I’m an actor.

What made ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’ so great is some of the mystique and where it was coming from and just the authenticity of it.

Aleister Black
‘Dark Side of the Moon’ was one of my father’s favorite records, which I obviously didn’t understand when I was young. To be honest, I don’t really have too many memories of hearing it, but I definitely have memories of the cover.

Karrueche Tran
In my life, I was always floating around the edge of the dark side and saying what if take it a little bit too far, and who says you have to stop there, and what’s behind the next door. Maybe you gain a wisdom from examining those things. But after a while, you get too far down in the quicksand.
