He Said What? Play the DETAILS 2013 Celebrity Quote Game

See if you can tell which actor, singer, or comedian who's graced our pages (in print or online) uttered each of the following phrases. We'll show you a quote and four possible sources followed immediately by the correct answer.

"I wanted to get an earring when I was 13. My brothers said that was a terrible idea and that as soon as Dad—a very, very obsessively strict cop, a tough guy—sees your Wham! starter kit, you're dead. Like, literally dead. He will turn you into a liquid. But I said, 'I don't care. I'm gonna do it.'" And after a trip to Sears the next day after school, he had done it. "I had a long walk home that felt like seven or eight days," he says. "And when I sat down at the dinner table, drips of sweat were just splashing off the table. I knew I was a dead man. I could feel my dad's eyes on me, like a laser beam burning a hole through my head. But then I could feel the gaze shift over to my brothers, and I heard him grumble something under his breath that was immensely offensive and that I won't repeat here. When I looked up, I saw that all three of my brothers had an earring. They did something pretty heroic in that moment. I have some amazing brothers."
