Ira Glass isn't so sure he can defend his 'Shakespeare sucks' comments (Updated)

UPDATE: We asked Ira Glass if he does indeed believe Shakespeare sucks, and this is what he said: “That was kind of an off-the-cuff thing to say that in the cold light of day, I’m not sure I can defend at all.”

Don’t worry, high school kids choking down Hamlet and Macbeth before school starts. You’re not alone: Famed radio host Ira Glass also hates Shakespeare.

Sigourney Weaver: Role in the new 'Alien' game is 'incredibly cool'

Sega’s forthcoming Alien: Isolation tells an original story about Amanda Ripley (briefly mentioned in Aliens) set 15 years after the first film. But Amanda is about to be overshadowed by her very famous mother: Sigourney Weaver will play Ellen Ripley for the first time since 1997’s Alien: Resurrection—albeit in digital form—in two pieces of downloadable content for the game.

“For us to have Sigourney Weaver reprise her role for the first time in videogames is something truly special,” says creative lead Alistair Hope.

“Crew Expendable” is free with preorders of Alien: Isolation, and it reunites Weaver with Alien costars Tom Skerritt, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, and Yaphet Kotto, who all lent their likenesses and voices to the game. The second mission, “Last Survivor,” is a GameStop preorder exclusive, and focuses on the final sequence of the film where Ripley must activate the ship’s self-destruct sequence and reach the escape pod. (Both episodes will also be available for purchase after the game’s release, for those who don’t preorder.)

EW talked with Weaver about rediscovering Ripley’s voice, cats, flamethrowers, cats with flamethrowers and the possibility of finishing the Alien saga with one final film. READ FULL STORY

Listen to the full interview below. READ FULL STORY

Here's what Marilyn Manson looks like on 'Sons of Anarchy'

FX has announced that the final season premiere of Sons of Anarchy will air Sept. 9 and be one hour and 45 minutes long. As EW reports in our Comic-Con Preview issue (on newsstands July 18), we’ll pick up 10 days after the tragic events of the season 6 finale. Jax will be behind bars, where he meets Ron Tully (Marilyn Manson), a white supremacist shot-caller whom he uses to expand his power base.

If seeing Jax in prison orange makes you uncomfortable, odds are you’re flashing back to season 5’s “Laying Pipe.” (Yes, the guys were wearing blue scrubs when Opie (Ryan Hurst) was killed, but they started and ended the episode in orange.) Jail has never been a safe place on SOA, which may also have you wondering if Manson’s recurring character will be long for this world. If you were signing on for Sons‘ epic final season, in which essentially everyone is expected to die, wouldn’t you hope to go out in a gloriously grisly way, too?

Let’s revisit the show’s history of prison deaths: READ FULL STORY

Amidst layoffs, Microsoft abandons bid to be the next Netflix

Another contender for the Netflix crown has fallen.

On Thursday, Microsoft announced that the company will shut down its Xbox Entertainment Studios division, well before any of the studio’s marquee series go live.

In an internal memo published by Re/code, Phil Spencer, head of the company’s in-house video game production wing Microsoft Studios, briefly outlined Microsoft’s strategy for the Xbox in light of the sudden upheaval: READ FULL STORY

See Stampylonghead, Minecraft's hero to children, introduce you to his world

MINECRAFT-YOUTUBE.jpg

Stampylonghead, ie. StampyCat, is the newest voice in children’s entertainment. But don’t expect to find him on television: This blocky, pixelated character only lives online, generating millions of page view in YouTube videos created via the uber-popular video game Minecraft.

The silly orange character is high-pitched, British, and has a magnetic attraction with the elementary school set, who love his juvenile adventures. They take him to remote, fantastical lands where he fights his nemesis, Hit the Target, and battles aliens and other ne’er-do-wells. He is the creation of 23-year old former bartender Joseph Garrett, who is on his way to turning his clever YouTube videos into a global brand. READ FULL STORY
