Renee Zellweger, Reese Witherspoon Walk to Defeat Als

12 hours ago

This summer, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis—also known as Als and Lou Gehrig's Disease—got a big awareness boost with the Als Ice Bucket Challenge. Sunday morning, the Als Association hosted its Walk to Defeat Als event, keeping that momentum going. "Our goal for today is to raise awareness of Als and raise funding to support people who are living with Als and to support research," said Fred Fisher, President and CEO of the Als Association Golden West Chapter. "The more money that we can raise, the more people we can help and the more research we can fund." The walk, »

'The Walking Dead' haunted house scared the bejeezus out of me

19 October 2014 4:00 AM, PDT

Keeping up to date on all things Walking Dead means more than just reading the comic and watching the TV show. Sometimes it means living it as well. I did that a few years ago when I went undercover as a zombie on the show back in season 2, although that bastard Robert Kirkman ended up cutting my scene because “the performance just wasn’t there.” Screw that. So this time I decided to switch sides and join the survivors and see if I could escape the clutches (and, more importantly, jaws) of the undead by walking through Rick’s — and »

Every 'Simpsons' 'Treehouse of Horror' short, ranked

18 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT

That's right: In honor of The Simpsons' 25th (!) annual Halloween special, which airs this Sunday, EW didn't just rank the top 25 "Treehouse of Horror" segments. We took things a step further by ranking every single "Treehouse" segment ever seen on the show—and you'll find entries 72 through 26 in the list below. Even when longtime fans sniff that The SimpsonsGolden Age is long past, they can agree that late-period Simpsons Halloween shows still pack a punch. Why? Because "Treehouse" segments give the series' writers a break in two ways: First of all, they're short, which means that they »

So there's a new rumor about 'Batman v Superman'...

17 October 2014 4:30 PM, PDT

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a long title for a movie. But given how many superheroes are definitely or probably showing up in the 2016 superhero film, a more accurate title would probably be Batman v Superman v Wonder Woman v Cyborg v an Aquaman cameo v The Flash probably. Warner Bros. has not been shy about promoting their incipient DC Cinematic Universe, and so at this point we should not be surprised by any rumors about a new beloved DC icon joining the film. Nevertheless, this local news report about the Batman v Superman film shoot does come with an interesting wrinkle. »

GamerGate is happening because we let it happen

17 October 2014 3:15 PM, PDT

Maybe you've heard of GamerGate. Countless stories have been written about the controversy over the past two months—yes, it started that long ago—in outlets ranging from game-centric titles to our biggest national publications. GamerGate has gone mainstream in a big way, but it remains elusive and difficult to understand. If you're someone who would like to know just what GamerGate entails, check out this exhaustive piece by Deadspin writer Kyle Wagner. It's long, but it's also evenhanded and nuanced. Anyone who tries to break the whole mess down in a bite-sized YouTube video or nifty imgur link is probably trying to mislead you. »

The 'I Am Bread' video game is exactly what you think it is

17 October 2014 3:13 PM, PDT

One of the best things about video games is how they allow you to experience things from truly unique perspectives—playing characters that come from an entirely different racial, religious, or socioeconomic background as yourself, allowing for deep insight and empathy when done right. Now, you can also play as a slice of bread. I Am Bread is the latest game from Bossa Studios, the developers most famous for Surgeon Simulator, a game that lets you play as the worst surgeon in the world. This time around, Bossa is taking their unique brand of quirky digital physics toys out of »

Entertainment Geekly: 'Pulp Fiction,' the video store, and the evolution of movie history

17 October 2014 2:04 PM, PDT

My new apartment doesn't have internet or cable, because I don't know if I want internet or cable. "Not wanting cable" is so hot right now. This week, CBS and HBO announced their intentions to launch streaming-only services. Pause to imagine your retired grandparents who watch NCIS: New Orleans but prefer NCIS: La. Now pause to imagine your prodigal-son cousin who stars in a hipster off-Broadway nude-rap opera. (He plays a a cross-dressing hooker named Threeyoncé.) Now pause to imagine that they both suddenly agree on everything—because when the most successful TV network and the TV network so cool »

Here's an 18-year-old Channing Tatum stripping at a club in Florida

17 October 2014 11:52 AM, PDT

It's one thing to know that Channing Tatum got some of his Magic Mike moves from his days as a real-life stripper, and it's an entirely separate thing to then watch an 18-year-old Channing Tatum—who went by his stage name Chan Crawford—grind on middle-aged women and rock a neon thong. But thanks to Us Weekly, we now know exactly what the latter feels like. Thanks to a video of Tatum dancing at a Florida club called Male Encounter, we can now analyze how he has grown as a dancer. The takeaways? Tatum was a little more flexible as »

Ron Perlman talks Connery, Brando, and whether he's watching 'Sons'

17 October 2014 11:36 AM, PDT

As the title of Ron Perlman's memoir Easy Street (the Hard Way) implies, the actor—whose Amazon pilot, Hand of God, recently got a season order and who voices a character in the Guillermo del Toro-produced animated feature The Book of Life now in theaters—has a life story full of ups and downs. "The book is very much about how every time something really, really bad happens, there's a resolve that takes place as you heal your way out of it," he says. "One of my favorite quotes, which is really representative of the book, is that »

J.K. Rowling plans to build a 'Hagrid hut' on her Scottish estate

17 October 2014 10:25 AM, PDT

Apparently not content to have simply invented the world of Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling is constructing it too. Rowling has designs to build a hut with a "striking resemblance" to Hagrid's Hogwarts digs on her Scottish estate, according to The Telegraph. Per The Telegraph, it will be a "circular structure, open to the front, with a stone bench and slate roof," and will be located on the precipice of a forest. No idea whether that forest is indeed forbidden, though The Telegraph does report that the estate has a loch that is rumored to be home to a "murderous water sprite. »

Ranking Saks's 'SNL' collection items, from least to most ridiculous

17 October 2014 9:15 AM, PDT

If you've ever wanted to dress like a super chic version of your favorite Saturday Night Live character, Saks Fifth Avenue has you covered. Especially if your favorite SNL character is Gilly. The department store's "Live From New York" collection, which was guided by SNL's costume designer Tom Broecker, features items from a variety of high-end designers that were inspired by classic SNL sketches. In some cases, the connections to SNL are tenuous at best. (Hello, Coneheads beanie.) In others, they're obvious—which is good news for those who can spend upwards of $1,000 to look vaguely like Mary Katherine Gallagher. »

That's no moon: 'Star Wars' invades real life photos

17 October 2014 8:01 AM, PDT

As a child, it's easy to imagine aspects of blockbuster movies like Star Wars appearing in everyday life—but growing older can make that magic more difficult to muster. So photographer Thomas Dagg tapped into his childlike wonder in a series of photos that make an encounter with an Ewok as pedestrian as, well, a pedestrian. Esquire spoke to Dagg about the pictures, which merge images of the real world with visuals from a galaxy far, far away. Tucked into an alleyway is Han Solo frozen in carbonite. A Jawa is scrounging through trashcans for items to sell. The Millenium »

Giants victory extends Steve Perry's concert stand for at least two more dates

17 October 2014 7:56 AM, PDT

The San Francisco Giants advanced to the World Series last night, with a walk-off three-run home run to defeat the St. Louis Cardinals. In bigger news, the victory extends the At&T Park residency of Journey's Steve Perry, the diehard Giants fan who's turned every San Francisco home game into a personal concert. For some, i.e. Perry, the Giants are just the warm-up act for his animated lip-syncing of his own stadium-thumping songs in between innings, like last night's rendition of "Don't Stop Believin'". Perry is obviously a big fan of the hometown Giants, and he's been driving the »

Hear the debut single from 'South Park's' Lorde

16 October 2014 3:26 PM, PDT

South Park already revealed that Lorde is actually the middle-aged father of Stan Marsh. But that doesn't mean Lorde can't make great music, as evidenced by "Push (Feeling Good on a Wednesday)," which has been released in full. Available to listen to online or download for free, the song is actually performed by Sia, according to Pitchfork, who constantly insists "I am Lorde" throughout. Lorde is, of course, not the first musician to be parodied so extensively by South Park—Cartman's rendition of Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" took on a life of its own, even becoming available to play in Rock Band. »

Allison Williams takes flight in 'Peter Pan Live!' poster

16 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT

And with a hint of fairy dust, Allison Williams is flying as Peter in the new poster for NBC's live production of Peter Pan.  Perhaps because she's playing a boy who won't grow up, Williams is dwarfed by the image of Christopher Walken as Captain Hook, who looms over the poster's Peter with evil, liner-donning eyes. The coloring makes these two look almost like the cartoon versions of their characters. Meanwhile, Williams doesn't seem to know where exactly she's aiming that knife, but both she and Walken wear a hint of a mischievous smirk. Peter Pan Live! is set to air Dec. »

The most important news from Apple's iPad event

16 October 2014 1:16 PM, PDT

Like a cool dad who just can't help but show off all his cool new gizmos, Apple is back one month after unveiling it's big new iPhones and super fancy watches in order to show a little love to the other things it makes. If today's event seemed a little less buzzy to you, it's probably because it was more of a mixed bag of an event with a number of announcements in several categories, as opposed to the crowd-pleasing Cracker Jack of an iPhone event with the attention-grabbing "surprise" of the Apple Watch at the bottom. That doesn't mean interesting things didn't happen. »

Neil Patrick Harris was almost in 'American Horror Story: Murder House'

16 October 2014 11:27 AM, PDT

Neil Patrick Harris has no shortage of things to do: He stars in the box office hit Gone Girl, recently finished a 20-week run as the title character in Broadway's Hedwig and the Angry Inch, just released his first book, and will be hosting this year's Oscars. But one opportunity he missed? Starring on American Horror Story. Long before Twisty the Clown made his debut on this season of the FX show, American Horror Story showrunner Ryan Murphy asked Harris and his husband, David Burtka, to play a couple in the show's first season, Murder House. But the two had »

Bill Murray ditches the 'Late Show' to train for the NYC marathon

16 October 2014 7:23 AM, PDT

Bill Murray is a very busy man—and sometimes, being very busy means going for a run in a tux in the middle of a talk show interview. On last night's Late Show, Murray realized that he was less than a month away from the NYC Marathon. Apparently, he'd made a promise to himself that he was going to enter this year. In a panic that he wouldn't have enough time to train, Murray took his interview on the run. After putting a little Bengay on his hands—to help with his achy knees, obviously—Murray took off for a quick, »

Brad Pitt has a 'breakdance conversation' with Jimmy Fallon on 'Tonight Show'

16 October 2014 6:40 AM, PDT

It's a little less conversation, a little more action in a new video from The Tonight Show that features Brad Pitt and Jimmy Fallon engaging in a "Breakdance Conversation"—meaning they breakdance in response to one another as subtitles tell us what words their moves translate to. For example: Pitt, who currently stars in World War II film Fury, back-flips off a wall at one point, which apparently means, "If you don't see , I'll be furious." Breakdancing Brad's got jokes! The clip ends with the two dancing together and Fallon shimmying his shoulders to signal "goodbye" to Pitt. If only all conversations looked like this. »
