Reese Witherspoon thinks that Tracy Flick, that eager student politician she played in Alexander Payne’s Election back in 1999, would probably be in charge of the Tea Party today. She revealed that and more in a 73 Questions video for Vogue, which she also covers for October, continuing to make the case, as she did for EW, that she is “a lot of fun to hang out with.” READ FULL STORY
So on Monday, I watched the Gotham series premiere with about 8 million of my friends. I started writing a column about the show and what it says (accidentally and/or purposefully) about the role of Batman in pop culture right now. But working on that column got me thinking more generally about Batman: A character who has been around for 75 years, a figure in my cultural consciousness since before my memory begins. The next thing I knew, I was making a list of my favorite Batman things–the movies, the TV shows, the vividly recalled comic book story arcs and standalone issues, the characters who stand out in my memory as defining aspects of the greater Bat-mythology.

This is one of the reasons why press screenings were invented.
Saturday Night Live comes back tonight? Honestly, thanks to a hiatus filled with casting announcements and Update shakeups and meticulous analysis of the show’s history (not to mention Live from New York‘s rerelease), it sort of feels like it never left. (Just me?)
Which doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be champing at the bit for tonight’s 40th season premiere—a sure-to-be splashy episode featuring a leaner, meaner cast, an all-new pair at the Weekend Update desk, and a host with potential to immediately join the list of greats. Maybe it’d be best to go over topics of discussion point by point: READ FULL STORY
A million leggy models/bartenders/aspiring red carpet hosts are having a little cry on the inside as George Clooney prepares to marry lawyer Amal Alamuddin in a reported 4-day fete in Venice.

Given the news that Gilmore Girls is coming to Netflix in October, you might be tempted to spend the entire month binging on that. We wouldn’t blame you, but there are some other exciting editions coming to the site this month if you want to take a break from Stars Hollow. READ FULL STORY
The pop culture saturation of a film by Quentin Tarantino cannot be denied, whether it’s paying homage to Bruce Lee in the Bride’s yellow jumpsuit in Kill Bill or inserting spaghetti Western motifs in basically all his flicks. But one fan has perhaps matched the master of meta.
What are the essential sketches, performers, and shows every comedy nerd should know? EW’s guest editors Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele offer a master class. Warning: Some of the clips ahead contain strong language.

As Key says, “I don’t know if there’s ever been anybody in history working at a level like he was working at. To have that much talent, that much charm, that much discipline, all of that wrapped up into one. To think about 48 Hrs., Trading Places. Aw, man!” Adds Peele: “If I had a kid and I wanted to form him into a perfect comedy nerd, I would tell him to watch the Saturday Night Live sketch where he puts on whiteface and he goes on the bus, and the last [nonwhite] guy walks off the bus and everyone starts a party. They’re passing around cigars and sh–. That’s a huge one.” READ FULL STORY
In today’s world, one of the full-proof ways to become an international movie star is to get a role in the big-screen adaptation of a bestselling YA novel, whether it’s Twilight, The Hunger Games, or in Miles Teller’s case, Divergent.
And in a new interview with W Magazine, Teller reveals that international stardom was one of the biggest draws to play Peter in 2014’s Divergent film. Apparently, Teller read the script for the film Whiplash while he was shooting Divergent in Chicago, and as he put it, “When I first read Whiplash, I was feeling dead inside.”
He said of filming Divergent: “I didn’t have an interesting part, and I’d taken the film for business reasons: It was the first movie I’d done that was going to have an international audience. I called my agent and said, ‘This sucks.’ He told me about Whiplash.”
However, Teller recently took to Twitter to clarify his comments, saying that he’s never done a film for “business” reasons.
I’ve never done a movie for “business” reasons. I’m proud to be a part of Divergent franchise and love all of Peter’s Princesses
