'Neighbors': Seth Rogen and Zac Efron try out for 'Workaholics' cubicle -- NSFW VIDEO

In a new Comedy Central video, Seth Rogen and Zac Efron audition for the most coveted role of them all: the fourth member of Adam, Blake, and Anders’ cubicle on Workaholics.

Their appearance in the Workaholics world is part of a promotional tour for the duo’s upcoming movie Neighbors, in which Rogen plays a new dad who clashes with his family’s new neighbor, a rowdy frat — and let’s just say Efron lives up to his role as cocky frat boy in the clip. READ FULL STORY

'Game of Thrones': Jack Gleeson's picture-perfect reaction to the Purple Wedding -- PHOTO

In last week’s episode of Game of Thrones, King Joffrey Baratheon finally ended his reign of terror by ingesting poisoned wine during his royal wedding.

While most fans of the show couldn’t wait for the day Joffrey met his end, the horrific manner in which he died — by violently choking to death — was so disturbing, many viewers were almost conflicted about the young King’s passing…almost. The one person who didn’t find it all that disturbing was the actor who played Joffrey, Jack Gleeson, as illustrated by a photo on his Instagram. The image shows Gleeson rolling his eyes, pointing to Joffrey’s white, bloody-nosed corpse on the screen, with a smirk.

Perhaps he is mocking his character’s death or just thrilled to be retiring from acting now that his story arc is over. Check out the photo below: READ FULL STORY

Channing Tatum is in talks to play a very famous X-Man

It won’t be long now until the X-Men franchise sets a new record for onscreen mutants with Days of Future Past, a movie about future X-Men and past X-Men and perhaps even some present-day X-Men. Beyond lies Apocalypse and another Wolverine and a mysterious spin-off movie that might be X-Force, with the implicit promise that they’ll keep making X-Men movies until X-Men 2099 is considered a period piece. (Remember X-Men 2099? Skullfire!) But a new dark horse has entered the X-Men Spin-Off Showcase sweepstakes: Channing Tatum told MTV’s Josh Horowitz that he has spoken to X-producer Lauren Shuler Donner about essaying the role of Gambit, the card-tossin’, lady-killin’, New Orleans-bein’-from superhero beloved by children of the ’90s and generally loathed by the older siblings of the children of the ’90s. (Speaking as the former: He’s our Dazzler.) READ FULL STORY

'The View': A seating chart for a drama-free co-host reunion

When all 11 past and present co-hosts of The View unite on May 15 to bid farewell to the talk show’s creator Barbara Walters, we expect each lady to be on her best behavior. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of bad feelings and some tongue-biting when these gals come face-to-face.

While The View was created as a platform for women with varying opinions to talk openly and frankly about the day’s topics, it turned into a powder keg for clashing personalities.  We don’t envy the person tasked with creating the seating chart that day. Over the 17 seasons, there have been a number of high-profile feuds among the cast, some involving Walters herself.

To keep the peace — just as a precaution, of course — here are our suggestions for co-host placement on Walters’ second-to-last day.

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' trailer: A deep dive into the final 'X' preview

X-Men-01

Even though it can sometimes feel like all of human existence is just an extended teaser-trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, the latest trailer for the super-sequel actually contains a few new pieces of information, mostly focused on previously-unfinished special effects and the always-controversial Quicksilver factor. Check out the trailer here, and now let’s dive deep into the last tantalizing piece of promotion until the movie finally arrives and human existence becomes an extended teaser-trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse.

'The Voice': Who's on our Top 12 power list?

Now that the playoffs are over, this season of The Voice has found its Top 12, and it’s time to vote!

You’ve read the recap, and now I present my most updated Power List, ranking the players on where they stand in the competition as of the playoff performances on Tuesday, April 15. Remember, we’ve seen these artists so spread out throughout the year that next week’s first live show will be a sprightly reminder of comparing them all on the same playing field. That explains the major jumps in this list from last week to this week.

What goes into this power list? It’s partly my predictions about how far these people will make it through the competition, coupled with what you’re all saying in the comments, as well as my own tastes, although those may or may not be reflected. (If it was strictly based on my personal preference, Bria Kelly would be at the far bottom, and Kristen Merlin would be significantly higher, for instance.)

Here’s who’s on top and who’s on the bottom as we head into the live shows on Monday: READ FULL STORY

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day'

The Terminator came out in 1984. Terminator 2: Judgment Day arrived seven years later. In the interim, Arnold Schwarzenegger became a new kind of action megastar, headlining a string of era-defining beefcake blockbusters. Commando, Predator, The Running Man, and Total Recall: The very titles echo down through history, dripping with gunsmoke and bicep sweat. But that era was coming to an end. The ’80s were over. Always a savvy operator, Schwarzenegger was already planning his pivot: Twins and Kindergarten Cop offered a kinder, gentler Arnold. (He loves kids! He loves De Vito!) READ FULL STORY

Matthew McConaughey HAS to return for 'Magic Mike' sequel

The McConaissance was a wonderful thing for pop culture. It brought us Mud, and True Detective, and of course, culminated in Mr. Alright, Alright, Alright finally earning an Oscar for his work in Dallas Buyers Club.

But are fans of Matthew McConaughey about to experience a downside to the actor’s recent success? The Channing Tatum-penned Magic Mike sequel, Magic Mike XXL, just received a release date of July 3, 2015. If things Work Out As They Should, it should be a wonderful two hours of G-strings, ’80s songs, and showcases of Tatum-created dance moves (ideally with less Alex Pettyfer and more Zac Efron). But what if recent Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey decides he’s above returning for the sequel? (A rep for the actor didn’t respond to EW’s request for comment.) READ FULL STORY
