The actors -- who happen to be as close as their former medical on-screen counterparts J.D. and Turk in real life -- uploaded a video on their new YouTube account, zachndonald, of a "Baby, It's Cold Outside" duet.
Clad in suits, ties, and shades, Braff and Faison crooned the Christmas classic with Los Angeles behind them, an infinity pool beside them, and a couple of very Charlie Brown-esque Christmas trees on their makeshift set, bringing the holiday message home.
The deeply bromanced funnymen took the opportunity to alter and personalize some of the lyrics to better suit them, like "For real dog, your lips look delicious" and "Say, lend me your afro comb ... It's a f*****' brush!"
Faison is currently starring on TV Land's "The Exes" and Braff will be appearing on ABC's "Cougar Town. »

Shortly after filming on director Sam Raimi‘s forthcoming Walt Disney Pictures movie Oz: The Great and Powerful began, we brought you the news when actor Bruce Campbell stated on Twitter that he would be joining the likes of James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Joey King and Zach Braff on the cast.
Just a couple of months after that, much to the dismay of his fans (myself included) Campbell stated on Twitter,
“News: my scene in Oz has been cut before shooting. It happens on epic flicks. Disappointed, but all good w/Sam. On to the next adventure!”
According to TheShiznit, who recently spoke with Campbell about the scene he did end up shooting, so it seems he may be appearing in the film after all.
“The scene that I shot was a page [of the script] and it took all day. It was great to see the scope of »

Director Sam Raimi and actor Bruce Campbell knew each other since the beginnings of their film careers. So were there any doubts that Raimi would not include his friend Campbell in “Oz: The Great and Powerful?” Back in November, Campbell admitted his cameo scene was cut. In Campbell’s Twitter account, he wrote, “News: my scene in Oz has been cut before shooting. It happens on epic flicks. Disappointed, but all good w/Sam. On to the next adventure! Now Cambell told The Shiznit that his scene is restored and it plays an important part of the upcoming Wizard of Oz prequel. “The scene that I shot was a page [of the script] and it took all day. It was great to see the scope of Oz and to see the detail, and the craftsmanship and professionalism and the incredible stuff that they’re doing visually in every other way,” he said. “I play a pivotal role. »
Back in August, we reported that actor Bruce Campbell joined the cast of Sam Raimi's Oz: The Great and Powerful in a small but "pivotal" role. However, the actor revealed last month that his scene was cut before it was shot. The latest twist is that, somehow, the actor actually did shoot this scene. Here's what he had to say about his role in Oz: The Great and Powerful.
"The scene that I shot was a page [of the script] and it took all day. It was great to see the scope of Oz and to see the detail, and the craftsmanship and the professionalism and the incredible stuff that they're doing visually in every other way. I play a pivotal role. It involves me and Oz - that's James Franco - and let's just say that we have a confrontation. It was a very fun role to do actually."

MTV has officially announced the return of "Punk'd," but one mystery remains: Who is at the helm of the prank series?

Zach Braff, best known for leading the beloved TV show Scrubs, is a man of many talents, and if you’ve seen his first feature film, Garden State, then you’ll already know that the man can both write and direct as well. (If you’ve not, I recommend you treat yourself to an early Christmas present, because it’s a brilliant film.)
Since the end of Scrubs last year, Braff has returned to theatre, starring in Trust last year off-Broadway in the States under the direction of Peter DuBois. And this year, he’s seen All New People, his own play, put on the stage in New York too.
With thanks to Deadline for the tip-off, Braff will be bringing All New People to the UK next year, and not only that, but he’ll be starring in the leading role too. The play, which his Trust director DuBois is directing, »

There’s a particular joy that comes from an excellent soundtrack accompanying an excellent movie. When the music matches the moment, from The Full Monty to Pulp Fiction to Cool Runnings, we experience a moment of aesthetic contentment.
But what about when the soundtrack is infinitely superior to the film? Buying soundtracks is often a great musical choice, because you get songs from a variety of artists – but what if the film they accompany was mediocre? Or worse still, one you’d never consider (or admit to) watching in a million years?
Here are a few that deserve to be placed in brown paper covers, or filed in itunes under a different name:

Though Michelle Williams got her start on a show geared towards teenagers, she's built her already-illustrious career with serious roles that largely been far from family friendly.
To score her first Oscar nomination, Williams co-starred in the gritty, high-profile closeted gay cowboy feature, "Brokeback Mountain." Then, a string of dramas, such as "The Hottest State," "Incendiary," "Deception," "Wendy and Lucy," and "Synecdoche, New York," all of which earned R ratings from the MPAA. The acclaimed work led to two of the biggest roles of her life, in "Blue Valentine" and "My Week With Marilyn," but also, a bit of a parental dilemma: with daughter Matilda walking, talking and out of the nursery, it was a bit difficult for Williams to bring her to work.
So, as the two time Oscar nominee told the Los Angeles Times earlier this week, getting cast as Glinda the Good Witch in "Oz: The Great and Powerful, »
