'Sons of Anarchy' star Theo Rossi names another show that made him cry

7 hours ago

Theo Rossi will admit he was competitive playing Scene It? with his friends when they first moved from New York to La, so it’s no surprise that he’s an entertainment junkie. To prove it, the man who plays Juice on FX’s Sons of Anarchy sat down to take one of our Pop Culture Personality Tests.

Watch the video and read the transcript the below—then feel guilty for thinking Juice must die this season.

EW: Who was your first celebrity crush?

Rossi: My first celebrity crush was actually Alyssa Milano. I remember. Who’s the Boss? I remember. »

That 'Tetris' movie you always wanted is finally happening

8 hours ago

Tetris, in many respects, is a perfect video game. You can learn to play in minutes, it is wildly addictive, and it has one of the greatest jingles to ever jingle. Everyone knows Tetris, as they should. Tetris is great. So of course Tetris is going to be turned into a movie and forever ruined.

According to The Wall Street Journal, which somehow managed to report the news with a straight face, the movie is being produced by Threshold Entertainment, a company you may know if you’re a big fan of Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat: Annhilation. According to Threshold CEO Larry Kasanoff, »

New Banksy artwork appears in English seaside town

16 hours ago

Finding an authentic Banksy is like discovering a… well, an authentic Banksy. The elusive artist’s work has been subject to many imitations, but a legitimate piece from Banksy appeared over the weekend in the English seaside town of Folkestone.

The piece depicts an older woman wearing headphones connected to a device that looks like a cross between a walkman and a Ghostbusters Pke meter while staring into a small, Roman-styled column.

Banksy also posted pictures of the piece on his website, showing the wall he painted on before and after his work was completed. To protect the artwork, the »

Why Kirby v. Marvel mattered

29 September 2014 2:45 PM, PDT

In 2014, it’s quite common to know almost every detail behind the production of a superhero movie before the movie is even released. From the release date to the cast to the director to screenwriters, every detail is examined and disseminated across myriad blogs and social media sites, to the point where, if you’re even mildly interested, you could easily find out the names of those responsible for getting that film to your local cinema.

But how about the people who created the characters in the pages of comic books?

In the early days of comic books, the relationship »

You need to watch 'The Simpsons' premiere's insane opening sequence

29 September 2014 8:23 AM, PDT

Shout all you want that The Simpsons hasn’t been good for the past years; either way, you can’t deny that the show’s recent spate of elaborate, extended couch gags has led to some dazzling, audaciously creative stuff.

This is especially true when The Simpsons turns over its opening to famous animators and filmmakers like Michal SochaGuillermo del Toro—and, most recently, indie idol Don Hertzfeldt, beloved for absurdist fare like the Oscar-nominated short film Rejected. (Contrary to semi-popular belief, he has nothing to do with those lookalike Pop Tart commercials from 2011; as the F.A.Q. »

Reese Witherspoon thinks Tracy Flick would be running the Tea Party now

29 September 2014 7:56 AM, PDT

Reese Witherspoon thinks that Tracy Flick, that eager student politician she played in Alexander Payne’s Election back in 1999, would probably be in charge of the Tea Party today. She revealed that and more in a 73 Questions video for Vogue, which she also covers for October, continuing to make the case, as she did for EW, that she is “a lot of fun to hang out with.”

What are some other things we learned about Witherspoon from this video? Well, she can do a backflip on a trampoline, and the following: She would invite “all the female senators” over if »

Entertainment Geekly: The Batman Top 100

29 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT

So on Monday, I watched the Gotham series premiere with about 8 million of my friends. I started writing a column about the show and what it says (accidentally and/or purposefully) about the role of Batman in pop culture right now. But working on that column got me thinking more generally about Batman: A character who has been around for 75 years, a figure in my cultural consciousness since before my memory begins. The next thing I knew, I was making a list of my favorite Batman things–the movies, the TV shows, the vividly recalled comic book story arcs and standalone issues, »
