Howard Stern Voted ''Best Men's Hair in America'' Over George Clooney, Chris Hemsworth, Bradley Cooper and More
And in today's silly hair headlines... Howard Stern has been voted "Best Men's Hair in America" by the folks at Groominglounge.com. The 61-year-old host won the title after more than 40 professionals in the hair care industry were polled on their favorites. "For the last 12 years, our now iconic shops have taken care of nothing but men's hair—so our team knows a thing or two about guys and their locks," said Groominglounge.com founder Mike Gilman. "And when we asked our experienced team which celebrity has the 'best hair'—Howard Stern won the majority of the votes." So what Hollywood hunks lost the crown to Stern?

10 Bizarre Origins Of Everyday Traditions That Will Blow Your Mind

tumblr

There are many things we do on a regular basis that we don’t even give a second thought to; but if we did, we’d probably marvel at how objectively bizarre they are. These are traditions – customs, practices, manners – that have been passed down through generations and generations, to the point where nobody thinks to question why it is that pretty much everyone does these random, pointless things.

Like a historical game of telephone, these commonplace traditions made sense when they were first conceived, but, through the years, became more and more distorted until only a version of the action, without the actual significance, remained. Fast-forward to today, where we have a whole world of humans with some pretty strange habits and with little knowledge of the odd and borderline sinister ways that they came to be known to us.

Josh Gad and Kevin Hart to Lead Untitled Buddy Comedy; Jeremy Garelick Will Direct

Two frequent comedy scene-stealers are teaming up to headline a film of their own. Josh Gad (Love & Other Drugs) and Kevin Hart (Think Like a Man) have been set to star in an untitled buddy comedy for Screen Gems and Miramax, per Deadline. Hart will play a charismatic guy who provides Best Man services for socially challenged gentlemen that have trouble finding Best Men of their own. Gad will play a man who seeks out Hart’s services, but he creates an even bigger problem by lying about the names of nine other groomsmen along with his Best Man. The two then proceed with carrying out the wedding rouse. Jeremy Garelick, who scripted the film alongside Jay Lavender, will make his directorial debut on the project. Garelick previously co-wrote the 2006 film The Break Up. After wowing audiences on Broadway in Book of Mormon, Gad landed his own TV show with NBC’s recently cancelled 1600 Penn.

Wednesday Comedy Roundup: Modern Family 4.18, Whitney 2.15 & 2.16

Modern Family Season 4, Episode 18: “The Wow Factor”

Written by Ben Karlin

Directed by Steven Levitan

Airs on Wednesdays at 9pm on ABC

This week we see the return of Modern Family and it’s back on top form. Leaving behind the new, experimental elements of episodes “Best Men” and “Bad Hair Day“, the Dunphy/Pritchett clan are back to their old, entertaining ways. Cam acts like a drama queen, Jay tries to get out of one of Manny’s artsy events, and Phil gets in over his head.

We return to the house-flipping plot this week as Cam and Claire play each other when working on the renovation. Cam “Trojan horses” Claire where he shows her an extravagant design option with a hefty sum so the compromise is the option he actually wants. Claire has her own game called ‘The Number Dump’ where she deliberately talks about percentages and

Wednesday Comedy Roundup: Modern Family 4.17, Whitney 2.11, & Workaholics 3.17

Modern Family Season 4, Episode 17: “Best Men

Written by Dan O’Shannon, Abraham Higginbotham and Bianca Douglas

Directed by Steven Levitan

Airs on Wednesdays at 9pm on ABC

This week we see the return of Sal, played brilliantly by none other than Elizabeth Banks, and this time she’s getting married. Barging in late at night, Sal announces that she wants Mitch and Cam to be her “Best Men”. The last minute announcement leads to a last minute hen party where Sal temporarily gets cold feet and makes out with a bar tender. Sal is a great character and Elizabeth Banks does crazy well, but the outcome feels a little disappointing. The episode is set out in a way that makes the audience expect, or hope, that Cam and Mitch end up getting married but the writers are probably saving this for a season finale. Lily is hilarious as always.

Watch/Discuss Last Night's "Modern Family:" "Best Men"

Mitch and Cam's former Bff (the faboo Elizabeth Banks) announces she's getting married, and wants them to be her Best Men, but they ... question her commitment. Meanwhile, Gloria has trust issues with the new nanny, Claire has a rare bonding moment with Haley, and Phil helps Luke with a girl he likes

Favorite Moments:

Once again, the kids steal the show, especially Mvp Lily, who has the funniest bit of the episode in the closing minute. Sal: "Sorry you couldn't come to the wedding, but it was no kids." Lily: "That's okay, I'll go to your next one." Mitch: "She just means when she's not a kid anymore." Lily: "She knows what I mean." Sal: "I don't like you." Lily (whispering): "I'll get over it." Phil: "What are you hiding?" Luke: "Porn." Phil: "Don't lie to me!" Haley: "I agreed to dinner, not tickets to the Electric Light Dorkestra.

Modern Family Review: A Rocket Ship to the Moon

  • TVfanatic
Elizabeth Banks is back and Gloria's showing off her rack! Sorry. I couldn't resist the rhyme. Yes, it's true, Banks returned this week as wild Sal on Modern Family.

Also in "Best Men," Jay wasn't pleased with how much Gloria is exposing of herself when breastfeeding Joe.

It's not so much a breastfeeding issue as it is the fact that Sofia Vergara is Hot and her breasts cause a bit of a commotion. As Jay said, Phil almost ate a candle when she whipped them out at dinner. While breastfeeding is a natural and healthy thing to do, I think Gloria might just be causing a lot of extra stares because, well...she's Gloria.

When Manny's art teacher calls Jay and Gloria into school to discuss Manny's latest fascination with drawing the female anatomy, it's brought to their attention that it might be time for Gloria to cover up. While I,

Review: A Few Best Men

It’s quite ironic that A Few Best Men is set at a wedding…because, quite frankly, I’ve been to funnier funerals.

Promoted as the “British version of The Hangover”, A Few Best Men follows the exploits of David Locking (Xavier Samuel), an orphaned individual who finds love on the remotest of islands courtesy of Australian native Mia Ramme (Laura Brent). After a week-long romance, David proposes to Mia and plans are made for them to wed within the confides of Mia’s rather scenic home back in Australia. After informing his friends, David and his ‘Best Men’ – Tom (Kris Marshall), Graham (Kevin Bishop) and Luke (Tim Draxl) – travel across to Australia to celebrate the upcoming nuptials, unaware of the influence or importance of Mia’s family, the Rammes.

Of course, in true Hangover style, things don’t quite go to plan – a combination of drugs, drink and one

'The Bachelorette': JabbaWockeeZ and a wedding in Las Vegas

After an action-packed "Bachelorette" premiere that included a masked Phantom of the Mansion and a guy who got so drunk they had to pour him in a cab and send him home, we are back with the episodes where the dates start. Fun stuff.

William's Date

Blonde-haired, blue-eyed hunk William gets the first one-on-one, which whisks him and Ashley off to Las Vegas. Their first stop is a wedding cake shop, where they smush cake on each other's faces. They then go pick out rings. William does not know what is happening and neither do I. Ashley is cracking herself up as she walks him through all these Vegas-wedding activities and William starts playing along - until a minister at a chapel is there and ready to go, then William starts to get a wee bit nervous.

Ashley comes into the chapel in her white mini-dress and the minister begins.

Prince William and Kate Middleton to Invite Public to Their Wedding

Prince William and Kate Middleton will invite 100 members of the public to their wedding via a random draw. The couple, who will tie the knot in a lavish ceremony at London's Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011, want the British people to be deeply involved in the celebrations and are delighted their plan of inviting a selection of ordinary citizens has been approved.

"William and Kate wanted the British people involved at a deeper level than simply holding street parties," a source involved with the St James's Palace planning committee revealed. "They were crystal clear on this from the outset and were delighted when the idea of a random selection was mooted."

"Those lucky enough to land an invitation will only find out when it drops on their door mat. Can you imagine? It's like winning a Willy Wonka Golden Ticket for your front-row seat in history."

Along with receiving an invitation to the royal ceremony,

'Radiant Child': Some Love for Tamra Davis's Latest

Tamra Davis Last week, I saw two of the best films I have seen all summer. One was Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, a film I beg you all to see before it gets shunted out of theaters in the next two or three weeks. The other film was Tamra Davis's new doc Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child.

Radiant Child is one of those films that often flies under the radar during this crowded summer season that deserves more attention than it is currently getting. It debuted earlier this year at Sundance along with the much more hyped Banksy film Exit Through The Gift Shop, and the comparisons are obvious. Jean-Michel Basquiat is the blueprint for an artist like Banksy and a cautionary tale as well.

But the similarities stop there. Both films are great. Probably the two best docs you'll see this year. But Banksy
