While we’re busy celebrating the best (and worst) in TV season finales, let’s also take a moment to air random grievances. One of my biggest pop culture pet peeves was poked by Law & Order: SVU‘s season ender last night: People who know they could be in danger and do not use the chain on their door. Yes, the chain probably won’t do much, but isn’t it just human nature to use it if it’s there? Especially if, say, the sadistic serial rapist you were trying to put away — the one who likes to torture victims for 18 or 19 hours in their home — was just freed? Of course, he was already somehow in the apartment when Olivia (Mariska Hargitay) arrived home (because a New York City homicide detective wouldn’t have a good security system). READ FULL STORY »
Mere days before Netflix’s May 26 Arrested Development binge, boozy-witchy Bluth matriarch Lucille has generously taken time out of her day-drinking to snap some sense into the damsels of Disney. They could all stand to lose some weight, by the way. You want your belt to buckle, not your chair. (Click the microphones on and off to hear the audio.) READ FULL STORY »
Robert Kirkman talks about his crime comic 'Thief of Thieves.' Plus: check out the first four pages of the new issue -- EXCLUSIVE
Walking Dead comic writer Robert Kirkman may be King of the Zombies (or at least crown prince to George A. Romero’s Z-monarch) but he also toils on a number of undead-free titles, including the superhero-filled Invincible, the kiddie-aimed Super Dinosaur, and Thief of Thieves. The latter details the adventures of a light-fingered master criminal named Conrad Paulson and is produced by Kirkman in collaboration with other writers, including Andy Diggle (The Losers) whose first issue hits stores May 29.
Below, Kirkman — who is also an executive producer on the Walking Dead TV show – talks about Thief of Thieves. Then, click on, to exclusively read the first four pages of the new (blood-drenched) issue. READ FULL STORY »
Yes, there are a few season finales to go, but with the rush of surprise twists, cliffhangers, and exits behind us, it’s now time for EW.com’s fourth annual reader-voted Season Finale Awards. After taking your suggestions under advisement — and extending the cutoff date to March 31, because so many of you wanted to (dis)honor the passing of The Walking Dead‘s Andrea — here are this year’s nominees. Vote now. Winners will be announced Friday. READ FULL STORY »
The Fast & Furious sextet features many kickass babes — including Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Gal Gadot, Eva Mendes, Gina Carano, and Mrs. Chris Hemsworth. But it also has a lot of women who just love hanging around cars — in the least amount of clothing possible. Here are our favorites from the first five films — and what we believe they are thinking.

Is cinema legend Morgan Freeman falling asleep during this on-air interview while his Now You See Me costar Michael Caine answers a question? We know Morgan Freeman is very intelligent and contemplative, so he could just be closing his eyes to think. Except he kind of does that thing where you catch yourself after nodding off.
Watch the clip below and decide if he’s a power nap master or just a really serious thinker:
Family love Michael and we all love the Bluths. In the lead-up to the fourth season premiere of Arrested Development on Netflix this Sunday, I thought back on the sweetest, most tender moments from the show’s whole crew. Of course, since this is Arrested – even their most heartwarming scenes have some kind of twisted take.
Check out a few moments that had viewers cringing and “aww-ing” all at once below (like George Michael and Maeby’s entire relationship!), and then add your own picks in the comments.
1.) When you think of karaoke with your niece (to prove a point to your son), it’s best to stay away from any tunes that involve lyrics like, “My motto’s always been when it’s right it’s right.” Unfortunately, the innocent-seeming title of “Afternoon Delight” tricks Michael and Maeby into crooning the surprisingly sexy tune at each other. It’s probably best that they avoided each other for the rest of the party. READ FULL STORY »
Hollywood has a go-to tough girl, and her name is Michelle Rodriguez. Ever since her breakout role in Girlfight, the 2000 indie where she played a troubled teen who finds her identity through boxing, Rodriguez has dominated the market on roles that call for a tough, no-nonsense beauty who can throw a punch without breaking her withering glare. Not only is she the alpha-female in the Fast and the Furious franchise, but she piloted a space chopper in Avatar, played a vengeful ex-cop on Lost, and scrapped with aliens in Battle: Los Angeles.
EW caught up with Rodriguez at the Los Angeles premiere of Fast & Furious 6, to talk about Machete Robert Rodriguez, her love of DC comics, and her frustration with female comic-book characters. READ FULL STORY »
