Every issue of Complex, we bring you "Talking Heads," an irreverent series of questions with four celebrities. For the October/November issue (see the Kid Cudi and Nicki Minaj covers on stands), we caught up with Wee Man, who does some really dumb, really funny shit in Jackass 3D, The League's Katie Aselton, who wrote, directed, and stars in The Freebie, Lloyd Banks, who makes a cameo as "Himself" in the new Harrison Ford movie Morning Glory, and Warren Ellis, who wrote the graphic novel that was adapted into the new movie Red, which stars Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, and John Malkovich as retired assassins. Keep reading to see what the celebs had to say about drinks, rappers, and dance jams...
WHO'S YOUR FAVORITE RAPPER OF ALL TIME?
Wee Man: Mickey Avalon.
Katie Aselton: I'm going to say Snoop.
Lloyd Banks: Biggie Smalls.
Warren Ellis: The girl from cLOUDDEAD. It's like hip-hop from hell.
WHAT'S YOUR DRINK OF CHOICE?
Wee Man: Stella beer.
Katie Aselton: A dirty martini with a splash of Tabasco. It's like a Bloody Mary without the blood.
Lloyd Banks: Hawaiian Punch. I got about eight gallons in my refrigerator right now.
Warren Ellis: Springbank Campbeltown single malt Scotch, 31-year-old bottling.
WHO'S THE SMARTEST PERSON YOU KNOW?
Wee Man: My mom.
Katie Aselton: My husband. He has really great intuition—you can't study that.
Lloyd Banks: At times I think it's me. But I would say my grandma.
Warren Ellis: Jamais Cascio. He's the guy who can tell you all the ways in which you are doomed. And then he can tell you all the ways to fix it.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE DANCE SONG?
Wee Man: "Paranoid," Black Sabbath.
Katie Aselton: "This Must Be the Place," Talking Heads.
Lloyd Banks: Uncle Luke, "Doo Doo Brown." That was crazy in school because you didn't have to know how to dance.
Warren Ellis: I have bad legs, so I really can't dance.
