Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All'
15 hours ago
You know the longer I do this show you’d think the less things would surprise me. Not so much. This Men Tell All was easily one of the strangest I’ve ever hosted, but in a really entertaining way. It all started with Ashley and Jp, two people I love very much. It wasn’t enough just to catch up with them and find out what’s going on with the pregnancy and their new life together, oh no, we had to raise the bar and do a live ultrasound. When I heard we were going to attempt to »

19 hours ago
Kate Hudson stopped by EW Radio’s “Bullseye” hour Tuesday to promote her new movie Wish I Was Here.

Listen to the full interview below.
Timecodes for highlights:
2:00: Hudson explains how her Halloween parties work.
5:50: She talks about her Fabletics activewear line, almost playing college soccer, »

Beetles destroyed George Harrison's memorial tree, so we rewrote some Beatles songs about it
21 hours ago
A tree that someone planted in memory of the Beatles’ George Harrison is no more: It was destroyed by beetles. No, really.
The pine tree, planted in 2004 near Los Angeles’ Griffith Observatory, died when it was infested by a swarm of beetles. It will eventually be replanted—but for now, we have some words for those tree-destroying insects. And naturally, those words come in the form of reinvented Beatles songs.
Dear beetles, won’t you eat new things today?
Dear beetles, don’t make trees de-cayyy
The sun is up, the sky is blue
It’s beautiful, and you are not
Dear beetles, »

Zach Galifianakis and Ted Danson bring The National doc to 'Broadway'
22 hours ago
In Hollywood, when big celebrities discover a splendid little documentary, they’re sometimes tempted to adapt it into a big-budget feature film—which may destroy what they loved about that little doc in the first place. But Ted Danson and Zach Galiafanakis aren’t your typical power-mad narcissists. They fell in love with Mistaken for Strangers, the poignant music doc about slacker Tom Berninger and his brother, Matt, who happens to be the lead singer of The National. Rather than turn it into a film, the two former Bored to Death co-stars took that pure story to the only place »

In anticipation of the big day, EW conducted separate interviews with DC Comics co-publisher Jim Lee and Batman the Animated Series creator and producer Bruce Timm, asking each to pick the most memorable and significant Batman stories of the past 75 years.
Both Lee and Timm have be heavily involved with Batman throughout their careers. Apart from being co-publisher of DC (alongside Dan Didio), Lee has illustrated several Batman comics including Batman: Hush with writer Jeph Loeb »

Here's what to do when Walder Frey shows up at a wedding
22 July 2014 9:20 AM, PDT
The essential ingredients for a wedding, as any Game of Thrones fan knows: something old, something new, something borrowed, something definitely not red.
The Red Wedding, technically a celebration of the marriage of Edmure Tully and Roslin Frey, is much better known as the site of one of the series’ most bloody massacres. So when Reddit user alip_93, a professional photographer, was hired to snap photos at the wedding of actor David Bradley’s daughter, he knew there would be a photo op with the guy who engineered the deaths of (spoilers) Robb, Catelyn, and many other heroes of the North:

5 Seconds of Summer plays to breathless fans on 'Today'
22 July 2014 8:42 AM, PDT
Timed to the release of their self-titled debut album, 5 Seconds of Summer stopped by The Today Show today to give fans a more-than-five-second sample of their new album.
Surrounded by screaming teenage girls, the band chatted with Matt Lauer about how far they’ve come from their first gig (which was in a room with 11 people) to play in the middle of Rockefeller Plaza. As always, they were affable, charmingly Austrailian, and almost impossible to hear over the high-pitched cheers of their fans.
The performance included both the band’s earworm hit “She Looks So Perfect”:
And “Amnesia”: »

'The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All': 'I had no idea you guys were kissing her so fast!'
21 July 2014 7:03 PM, PDT
Awww, Marquel—don’t feel bad, little buddy! You may have found yourself in the “Friend Zone” with Andi, but the “ladies” in the audience were truly digging your chocolate-chip cookie lapel pin tonight. (If you haven’t seen it, you’re in for a treat—pun intended.) As for the rest of tonight’s Men Tell All? Well, other than that disturbingly Tmi segment with Ashley and Jp, the “shocking” “revelations” were “few” and “far between.” Stay tuned for my full recap later tonight (Update: Click over for Kristen’s full Bachelorette: The Men Tell All recap), but here »

A serious attempt to understand Blake Lively's Goop-like website
21 July 2014 6:06 PM, PDT
“So Blake Lively just launched her Goop” is how someone explained Blake Lively’s new website to me a few hours ago. Now, I am not a cynical person. I believe in giving everything at least half a chance. I can acknowledge that Goop is a thing that people care about, even though nobody can figure out whether to spell it “Goop” or “goop” or “Goop.”
And to the extent that every generation needs their Goop–just like every generation needs a hero or a Highlander or a defining entry in the MarioKart series–Blake Lively seems like someone who could pull that off. »

Dwayne Johnson maybe just revealed that he's playing a 'Justice League' superhero
21 July 2014 4:25 PM, PDT
Dwayne Johnson has long been rumored to play a character in Warner Bros’ rapidly expanding DC movie universe. In a surprising revelation happening days before the yearly Casting Revelation Geek Orgy known as Comic-Con, Johnson appeared to confirm his participation in the DC franchise. “DC and I have been talking for a couple of years now,” said the Hercules star, clearly excited to talk about anything besides Hercules. “There’s a character out there that we’re gonna announce really soon, that I’m gonna play.”
“Announce really soon” could mean “at Comic-Con” or it could mean “in the next »

Watch outtakes from Dave Franco and Conan O'Brien's Tinder bit
21 July 2014 3:32 PM, PDT
Conan O’Brien recently enlisted Dave Franco to go on a Tinder adventure with him. The stars set up profiles using fake names—Chip Whitley for O’Brien; Djengus Roundstone for Franco—and new profile pictures, then got to it. And by “got to it,” we mean they tried very hard to find a woman who would agree to meet up with them.
Franco and O’Brien did end up meeting with a fellow Tinder user—and even managed to lure her into their creepy, duct tape-filled van. But the most amusing part of the bit was watching the two craft their profiles, »

Video: Dean Cain explains why an episode of 'The Brady Bunch' pissed him off
21 July 2014 3:14 PM, PDT
Fans of VH1′s Hit the Floor (Mondays at 9 p.m. Et) last saw Dean Cain’s pro basketball coach Pete Davenport unconscious in his bed after another bender. Cain can’t tell you if Peter lives or dies, but he can share a great story about how his house was built as a direct response to an episode of The Brady Bunch that infuriated him. »

Here's what it's like to attend a Nicolas Cage-themed art show
21 July 2014 2:43 PM, PDT
Around 9 p.m. Saturday night in Los Angeles, a small but eager group stood in a building entrance lit only by Christmas lights and the flashlight of a lone security guard. A large, service-like elevator hit the ground floor, and soon, they slowly ascended to what’s called The Syrup Loft for an event seemingly ridiculous in theory, but executed with unbridled commitment: The Nicolas Cage Art Party Los Angeles.
It all started earlier this year. While working the night shift at Bed, Bath & Beyond, producer/curator Ezra Croft had an epiphany: He should hold a Nicolas Cage-themed art show. »

Video: Jordana Brewster shares her favorite fashions with 'People'
21 July 2014 12:09 PM, PDT
Fast & Furious franchise star Jordana Brewster has starred in roles that put her in jeans and tank tops, but right now she’s more into colorful pants and jumpsuits.
At least that’s what the actress tells People on their “I Love My Closet” series. In a tour of her house, she shares her favorite fashion tips (some culled from stints on shows such as Dallas), and the two items of clothing she’s kept over the years: her wedding dress and the jeans she wore on the set of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, where she met her husband producer Andrew Form. »

What does Beyonce have to do with 'Fifty Shades of Grey'?
21 July 2014 10:31 AM, PDT
This Thursday, Fifty Shades of Grey fans will get their first peek at the film when its trailer finally debuts. But much like its teaser, the full-length trailer won’t premiere on any website. Instead, it will debut on the Queen of Pop’s Instagram account, which prompts an important question: What does Beyoncé have to do with Fifty Shades of Grey?
So far, the only connection between Beyoncé and the film is her Instagram account, and the fact that she can be heard singing what sounds like a slowed down, sultry version of “Crazy In Love” at the end of the teaser. »

See New York Rangers goalie Cam Talbot's 'Ghostbusters' mask
21 July 2014 10:06 AM, PDT
New York Rangers’ Cam Talbot is a fan of Ghostbusters—such a fan that artist David Gunnarsson makes Zuul-covered masks just for the goalie.
Gunnarsson showed off his latest creation, a mask covered in Bill Murray and other Ghostbusters imagery, on his Facebook page this past weekend. “Every single mask of Talbot’s latest Ghostbusters masks has become such huge successes, so Cam now even has his new nickname,” Gunnarsson wrote. “Goalbuster.” Catchy! »

Are ya ready, kids? Krusty Krab-lookalike restaurant to open in Ramallah
21 July 2014 9:34 AM, PDT
The Krusty Krab, a mainstay of Bikini Bottom and the workplace of Spongebob Squarepants, seems to be building a second franchise above-ground—and it appears to have chosen the Palestinian city of Ramallah as its new site.
A Facebook page is posting photos of the restaurant in construction, inspired by The Krusty Krab from the Nickelodeon series Spongebob Sqaurepants. In the photos, everything from the wall paneling to Squidward’s cashier counter looks like it does in the Krusty Krab from the show.
If the restaurant serves seafood, though, it might be hard to get customers from the area: While »

Kanye West is a blowfish, and other ridiculous things from his 'GQ' interview
21 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT
Kanye West is a blowfish—not a shark, a blowfish. At least, that’s how he describes himself in a new interview with GQ that, predictably, features many other gems from the candid star.
Sure, some of the interview is actually pretty sweet—he talks about wanting to make sure his daughter’s life is better than his own, how much he loves his wife, Kim Kardashian, how special it is to have someone to call “Mom” once again. (He also basically confirms that every insane rumor you heard about the Kimye wedding was 100 percent true.) But when we look to Kanye West, »
