It’s a good weekend to be Lee Pace: He plays the blue-hued Ronan the Accuser in Guardians of the Galaxy, now in theaters, and his AMC show Halt and Catch Fire airs its season finale Aug. 3 at 10 p.m. Et.

Stephen Colbert gives heartfelt advice (no, really) to teenage girls

2 hours ago

No, this isn’t a joke, or even a bit from Stephen Colbert’s show. The soon-to-be Late Show host dropped his satirical facade to pass on some thought-out advice to teenage girls.

Colbert answered questions for Rookie Mag’s Ask a Grown Man segment, where girls submit questions on everything from family life to boyfriends, and adult male celebrities respond. In this edition, Colbert sounded off on street harassment, how best to deal with parents that don’t approve of your relationship, how to tell if someone likes you, and more. The answers are, as you might expect, awesome. »

Listen to Anson Mount read a scene from 'The Breakfast Club'

2 hours ago

Fans of Anson Mount know him as Bohannon on the AMC Western Hell on Wheels. But they may have also heard that he’s a huge fan of The Breakfast Club. EW had, which is why we asked him to perform a classic Bender-Claire scene with us when he popped by Entertainment Weekly Radio. It’s the best Nsfw thing you’ll hear all day. 

Mount also talked about the joys of working with a baby and bringing his dog, Mac, to set. (Read our Hell on Wheels season 4 scoop here and here.)

Bonus: He played our “You Said It! »

'Guardians of the Galaxy' ending: Who was that? And other spoiler-y questions

3 hours ago

The superhero movies released by Marvel Studios tend to downplay the more outré elements of their source material. Even the Thor films have mostly held back on the elaborate space-god architecture of the comic book’s mythology, defaulting to a few familiar fantasy-genre elements (evil elves, shining cities, magic-as-plot-shortcut). Not so with Guardians of the Galaxy, a movie which dives deep into a few different deep-space cultures. Perhaps fearful of scaring people off, the movie’s first act drops a lot of exposition grenades about the key points of Galaxy’s Galaxy. Even if you can’t tell the Kree from the Xandarians, »

You can stop getting excited about live action Squirrel Girl (for now)

6 hours ago

In case you haven’t heard, Marvel has plans to continue releasing movies and TV shows featuring its wide and varied cast of comic book characters. These plans will extend well into the administration of the next President of the United States of America. Much like the identity of our next President, which comic book characters will be brought to life next remains a mystery. Another similarity: Comic book pundits are offering insights and arguments about who might be coming to one of your many screens next. (Those pundits aren’t on CNN, though. They’re on the Internet, which »

Smell the Sharknado: Tara Reid has a perfume called 'Shark'

9 hours ago

Like a beautiful rainbow left behind by a torrential storm, the awesome might of the Sharknado has bestowed upon us a precious gift. That gift is Shark, the new fragrance from Tara Reid.

Described as “a light and refreshing perfume perfect for day-to-day wear,” Shark is full of scents like lavender, violet, and cool blue rose, all meant to convey a “light and fun feel.” This is highly suspect. Sharks are not light and fun. They are the opposite of light and fun. They are large and terrifying.

However, if one wanted to become a shark, then smelling light and fun would be advantageous. »

Ask Dalton: Must 'Star Wars' fans educate newbies?

10 hours ago

Are DVR battles hurting your marriage? What are the ethics of sneaking food into theaters—or watching lowbrow reality TV? Our resident pop culture omnivore Dalton Ross offers his sage advice.

I work at a library. Someone asked to take out The Empire Strikes Back after admitting he had not seen Star Wars. What to do?

—Jennifer (@apatch4that)

You’ve come to the right place with this, Jennifer. Not unlike C-3Po himself, I am fluent in more than 6 million forms of communication, including (but not limited to) geek, nerd, dork, dweeb, and wannabe Jedi. This offense is not as grievous—or General Grievous, »

Kathie Lee Gifford wrote an 18-minute musical about the 'Today' show

10 hours ago

Here’s what you missed in the fourth hour of the Today show this morning: Kathie Lee Gifford revealed that she’s written an 18-minute musical featuring the Today anchors and crew.

Gifford made the announcement with co-host Regis Philbin, who is filling in for Hoda Kotb. The work is called Not Today and Tomorrow’s Not Looking Good Either, which sounds more like somebody trying to get out of a commitment than a celebration of all today (double meaning!) has to offer. Philbin, who hosted Live with Regis and Kathie Lee for 15 years, will guest star.

Watch Jimmy Fallon and Julia Roberts throw balls at each other's faces

12 hours ago

Julia Roberts must not have related to Amber from Clueless, because she’ll happily engage in an activity where balls fly at her nose.

Continuing a growing tradition of getting celebrities to do ridiculous things on national television, Jimmy Fallon enlisted Roberts in a game of “Face Balls” Thursday night. The premise? The two would throw see-through inflatable balls at each other’s faces, then watch their reactions in slow motion.

The result is simultaneously just as weird and stranger than expected. One of Robert’s shots crumples Fallon’s nose, while Fallon gets in one shot that totally distorts »

About that time Chris Pratt flashed Amy Poehler

12 hours ago

Long before he was a Guardian of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt got in trouble with NBC for showing his coworkers his penis.

Pratt explained the incident on Wednesday’s Late Night with Seth Meyers: During the second season of Parks and Recreation, there’s a scene where Pratt’s Andy Dwyer shows up at then-girlfriend Anne Perkins’ home naked. Only Anne doesn’t open the door—Leslie Knope does.

As in most scenes with pixelated nudity, Pratt was actually wearing nude-colored briefs while shooting the scene. Then he decided to ditch them. You know, for art. »

Entertainment Geekly: Or maybe 'Twilight' was the best thing to happen to Comic-Con

31 July 2014 5:19 PM, PDT

Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses!

“Were the Twilight movies good?” is not a question I want to even ask right now. It’s too complicated, with too many extremist perspectives on either side. There are the kids who grew up with the Twilight phenomenon as their entire teenage pop culture prism. (Remember: Thanks to the annual-ish release strategy and the real-life romance angle and the fact that Twilight soundtracks were sort of a thing, Twilight as experienced by »

'Mindy Project' star Adam Pally reveals which celeb sex tape he owns

31 July 2014 2:15 PM, PDT

When The Mindy Project’s Adam Pally isn’t busy playing the role of Peter—Mr. Wedding and general supporter of Mindy and Danny’s love—he keeps himself busy with a variety of projects. For one thing, he recently partnered with Philips Norelco Click & Style and YouTube stars The Warp Zone to create a two-part online video series that explores some of the “hairy issues” involved with manhood. Part 1 of that series, titled Game of Bros, is already online, with part 2 premiering Friday, August 1.

And when he’s not filming the web series? Well, you might be able to »

Recast 'Game of Thrones' princess posts hilarious video reaction

31 July 2014 2:09 PM, PDT

It’s a hard life, playing a princess on Game of Thrones. Sure, you get some guaranteed screen time whenever someone gets married. Sure, there’s always the ambient possibility that you’re suddenly going to become the most important character 40 episodes after you get introduced. But Thrones has also made a habit of recasting some of its minor characters, aging them upwards or beardwards, clearly operating under the assumption that people can barely keep track of the show’s 5,000 characters already.

And so it was that Aimee Richardson—a day 1 Thrones cast member who played nominal Baratheon/actual Lannister »

In Defense of Allison Williams as Peter Pan

31 July 2014 1:05 PM, PDT

Let me start by admitting something that I’m not proud of.

When I first learned that Allison Williams had been cast as Peter Pan in NBC’s Peter Pan Live, I was gleeful. I absolutely could not wait to sit down in front of the television—with a platter of sad tacos—and savor the schadenfreude of seeing Marnie from Girls unleash her theater-geekdom on national television. And apparently, I’m not alone. Not everyone is happy about this news. Some have blamed the casting on nepotism. Critics like to suggest that Williams and other Girls stars are only »

Watch the best of EW's Phhhoto Booth at Comic-Con

31 July 2014 9:32 AM, PDT

At EW, we’re still powering down from the high of being at Comic-Con—and now it’s time to start parsing through the highlights. One of those was our automated Phhhoto booth in the EW Hideout, brought to you through our partnership with Phhhoto and Related Noise.

We got PHHHOTOs from George R.R. Martin, Jeff Bridges, and more, and while we’re bummed that Comic-Con’s over, we’re happy replaying the Phhhoto loops on our screens to relive it. To make a few PHHHOTOs on your own time, try out Phhhoto’s iPhone app. »

Broadway 'Love Letters' casts Carol Burnett, Alan Alda, Anjelica Huston

31 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT

The first Broadway revival of A.R. Gurney’s seminal epistolary play has assembled a high-profile cast for a series of limited engagements this fall.

Love Letters remains one of theater’s most enduring romances of the past 25 years, having first opened in New Haven, Connecticut, in November 1988. The show paints a portrait of two friends—Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III—who have exchanged letters for over 50 years, having spent a lifetime discussing their greatest hopes and deepest disappointments.

Directed by Gregory Mosher, Love Letters will feature a rotating ensemble of players who will star in the two-person romance, »

Can you name every costume in our Comic-Con supercut?

31 July 2014 6:39 AM, PDT

As anyone who’s ever dreamed of wielding superpowers or living in a magical fantasy realm or fighting demons knows, San Diego Comic-Con is the ultimate safe space for geeks—as one Con-goer told EW earlier this month, “Nobody is judging you here.” That’s why attendees go all out, bedecking themselves in elaborate outfits that put some low-budget big-screen costumes to shame.

Some of the best cosplayers we saw at Comic-Con this year make appearances in the following video, including one extremely convincing Han Solo in carbonite, more than one Daenerys Targaryen, a pair of Breaking Bad enthusiasts in yellow hazmat suits, »

Watch Brian Williams report Allison Williams' 'Peter Pan Live' news

31 July 2014 6:17 AM, PDT

Brian Williams is a bit of a cool dad (or as Hannah Horvath of Girls might put it, a “kewl dad”): He’s up with the rhymes the kids are throwing around these days, and hey, he’s even chill when watching his daughter, Allison Williams, replicate sex on Girls. (Let’s all take a moment to imagine him visiting the set, asking, “You guys need anything? Some snacks? Condoms? Let me know!”)

So when the news broke yesterday that his daughter had been cast in NBC’s Peter Pan Live, it was time for Williams to prove his real cool-dad cred. »

Watch Vin Diesel say 'I am Groot' in French, Spanish, Mandarin, and more

30 July 2014 5:57 PM, PDT

In this weekend’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Vin Diesel essays the role of Groot, a giant space tree. In addition to Groot’s other lovable traits, he only ever says three words: “I am Groot!”

But recording the part was no walk in the park for the Fast & Furious star. Marvel has released several videos showing how Diesel re-recorded the line in multiple languages: French, Spanish, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese. And Jimmy Fallon even tested Diesel by asking him to say the line in Mandarin.

Watch the videos below. The only thing better would be if Diesel toured the country, »

Other DC Comics characters we want on 'Arrow' and 'The Flash'

30 July 2014 5:23 PM, PDT

Warner Bros. didn’t make any announcements at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con regarding future DC Comics films, so who knows when we’ll get a Justice League movie. Thankfully, the CW’s excellent series Arrow and new series The Flash are here to fulfill all of our fangirl/fanboy desires while we wait for an actual Jl team-up onscreen.

This fall,  Arrow and The Flash are diving deeper into the DC Universe, bringing many favorites from the comics to the screen. Ra’s Al Ghul, Wildcat, Atom, and Katana will all be introduced on Arrow this season, and »
